Pet-Peeves:
When Mommy and Grammy and Grampy leave me at home, that my toys aren't allowed in the house, when the window isn't rolled down enough to stick my head out in the car, when something gets past me and I don't get to give it a good sniff, giving up the ball.

For Christmas I got my snake, I love it so much I carry it everywhere and sleep on it, the Scrubbie Bubble, the original red "squeak squeak", my octapus, I just love stuffed animals.

Favorite Food:
I like peanut butter, cantelope, honeydew, apples, carrots, corn on the cob, green beans & croutons, lettuce, Grampy gives me some of his turkey every morning when he makes his sandwich.I looove ice! BACON! mashed potatoes, anything and everything really.

Favorite Walk:
I go to the dog park a lot and down to the park, sometimes Grampy takes me to work with him.

Best Tricks:
Well if you tell me to "squeak squeak" I will, I'll go pick up one of my "squeak squeaks" and I won't stop squeaking. I can also go get Grammy when Mommy tells me, I don't really get her though, I just give her lots a kisses.

Arrival Story:
Well Mommy had been wanting a puppy for a while and her and Grapmy had been going to the pound all the time and then one day Grammy and Grampy said that she could get one. So they came to the pound and I was in my kennel. I thought they were real nice looking so when Mommy knelt down to pet me I licked her to death. And when she started walking away I yelped and put my paw through my kennel so she would see she had to take me home.

Toothless Belle and the wet food adventure..

So Sundays Uncle Brian, Auntie Leah, Rita, Eric, and Kurt have been taking their dogs me, Bella, Buck, Indy, and Thunder, to the dog park in Burlingame. We love it, we run and play together, we get to chat and sniff all of the furry friends we see there. Unfortunately TRAGEDY struck last Sunday.... Uncle Brian was throwing the ball for me, Bella and I lost my footing and fell really hard on the ground. I squeaked really loud and stood up and shook myself off rather unsteadily. Kurt said I must've bit my tongue because there was blood on it. Auntie Leah, Rita, and Mommie jumped into action commencing in a three prong transformation into Mommy mode. Rita was the best, she's studying to be a dental hygentist so she knows all about teeth and mouths. She was looking in my mouth when I proceded to spit out one of my incisors. Right there next to Rita's foot. Well the Mommies freaked out and sprinted to the water fountain where Auntie Leah insisted that little me drink gallons of water. Then I decided to show Rita my appreciation by giving her a big lick on the chin. We called the emergency vet and they said we could hold off taking me to the doctor until the next day.(Thank goodness because it would have cost a pretty penny to go to the doggie ER.) Uncle Brian, Mommie and me went to the vet the next day and he was amazed at what a tough little cookie I am. I was still attempting to pick up all my toys with a very swollen mouth and missing tooth. This impressed him. Uncle Brian said I was such a good girl and Mommie was just relieved. They don't think they'll have to do a root canal but we gotta watch and see if my gum clears up and does not become infected. I got to eat wet food for a few days (I have never had wet food before) and now I keep looking for it, I am able to eat my crunchies but wet food has so much flavor, moisture, it's just more sophistcated than crunchies. But the doctor says I don't need it..... On well something to look forward to when I get old and lose more teeth I guess....

 

Oh Boy I got a Buck!

Well, I love my cousin Buster who belongs to Auntie Leah and my cousins Fisher and Tess who belong to Great Aunt Sue. But my goodness do I love my new friend Buck! He belongs to Rita and Eric, I myself am very curious about this Eric fellow...least that's what Mommy says because I always sniff him from a distance. She tells me that it's otay and he's a nice man but I am what she calls "skittish". Anyways... oh the fun me and Buck have, we chase balls, he gives me kisses and I get all the pets a girl could want. Now that Mommy is gone during the week I have to cherish these special times and be real cute so maybe she won't go. I understand she's finishing school and making a greeeat life for us, but that doesn't mean anything to me, all I know is that there are no silly songs or extra Buddy Biscuits. Oh how I waggle when I see her. She tells me I'm breaking her heart but obviously I'm going to have to resort to new tactics because she seems to be doing stupendous in school and I have my very own big green bed room. (That's what we call my bed room, you see I have a biiiig green bed that no one but me gets to sleep in, when Mommy is home she sleeps in the tall bed and I sleep in my biiig green bed and together we go to sleep.) Mommy is happy though and I know she misses me, it's not too bad staying here with the Grandparents... I got the one they call Grammy wrapped around my little finger. Oh and that Grampy, he doesn't even realize how much he loves me. But I know... I got so lucky when that found me! Whoa... I gotta go I hear someone at the door and I've just lost control of my tail..... Bella xoxo

 

I know what I am! Woooof Woof hooray!

We have finally figured out that I am a boxer whippet. Exhaustive research (whatever that is )has come to the unanmious conclusion that I am not a "shepeard mix" like I was labeled at the shelter. I was just too young to tell and so they called me a shepeard. That's even what they told Grammy. Anyways, there's lotsa stuff to sniff with this Christmas thing going on so I gotta go or I might miss something.
Oh yeah Mommy wants me to tell everyone that she got me a new sweater, everyone at the dogpark thought it was sooooooo cute. It's cool I'm not cold and all but I dunno how I feel about all these peeps thinking I'm so cute. Oh boy! The door just opened........ I must investigate what is entering MY house. -Bella
