Being Bella

 
Today's post is all about my precious Bella.  If you don't like dogs, you definitely won't like this post today.l
 
 
Bella is a shelter dog adopted when she was about six months old.  She is part Australian Shepherd and part Blue Heeler.
 
 
She was really John's dog but has done very well adapting to me as her sole owner.
 
 
Bella is so good with the little girls.  Laynee is good about sharing with her.
 
 
Bella is always close by when the little ones are here.
 
 
They are so cute together.
 
 
They both love Cheetos.
 
 
She lets me dress her up for holidays but is not too happy about it!
 
 
 
Can you really blame her?  LOL
 
 
And yes, she is very spoiled!!  She sleeps anywhere she wants at any time.
 
 
What a blessing she has been and continues to be each and every day.
 
Love you Bella!
 
Judy

    1. Thanks Linda. I have a small picnic table for the girls to eat on and you should see Bella when they are eating. She just sits there and drools and eventually one of them will slip her something to eat. She knows that they will. LOL

  3. Oh Judy, Bella reminds me so much of my Lili. She also was a rescued dog. Bella is such a sweet good dog with the girls. Does she follow you around all day? Loved this post and pictures of your dear sweet Bella. How did she take to her new home?

    Have a great weekend and I hope it's not to hot for you.

    1. Yes, Bella and Lili could be twins for sure! She does follow me around all day - every step I take. She and I go to Sonic drive in every morning for breakfast. We each eat a breakfast burrito. We don't even have to order. When we pull up, the cute little car hop just rings up the same thing every day. LOL She has adopted very well to the new home. It's really easy for me because I have sliding doors right off of my bedroom and that's where she goes outside. She's checked out all of the flower beds, et. When I had my storage shed built she kept getting underneath it so I put wiring around the bottom. Twice last week, I had to go pull her out. She had gotten under there and couldn't get out. She's a little on the chubby side.

      Have a great weekend. We're looking at 105-110 heat factor so we'll be staying inside.

      Thanks for dropping by and tell Lili that Bella says "woof".

  4. Your Bella is so sweet. I had to laugh when I saw the pictures of her in her holiday outfits. In one she looks like she is rolling her eyes. Our little Fuzzy Pomeranian likes to wear his Halloween outfit, and a little Christmas sweater. He gets excited and wags his tail about them. One time, though, I thought it would be fun to put a big fluffy white toilet tissue bow around his neck. Now that was just one step too far for him, he shook his head, and clawed it right off. I tried to put it back on him and he would have none of it. Even he knew that bow was just downright ridiculous.

    He loves our six year old grandson, and from the very first appointed himself as our grand's number one protector and food share-er.

    1. She does roll her eyes!! LOL She lets me put on the outfits but they last just about long enough to take a picture and that's it.

      Thanks for dropping by.

  5. Sweet Bella! "Rescued" is the best breed! I just adore the costumes you make for that little cutie! My rescue, Roxie, allows the grandkids to decorate her with blankets and hats.
    Your grandchildren are beautiful!

    1. Isn't it amazing how they know to be gentle with the little ones? Bella just lays around when the girls are here and stays close to them. Course, she's always hoping they will drop food somewhere along the way.

      Thanks for dropping by.

  7. There is no doubt in my mind that she helped you thru the hard times after your sweetie passed....we have 2 dogs around here and I really love them both...they are house dogs (even Athena, great dane) in son's house..they both have a full sized futon PLUS pillows to sleep on...LOL

    1. Yes, dogs add a lot to our lives. I can't imagine people who have never had a pet of any kind. They miss out on so much. Course, we've kinda gone overboard spoiling Bella.

  11. Bella is such a lovely dog, and she is such a great friend. Love how patient she is and so good with the little ones too. Hope you both keep cool during those high temperatures, Judy! Happy weekend.

    1. Thanks Helen. She is good and very protective of the little ones and me too. We hit 101 today with a heat index of 110. It was miserable. We might have rain next week with some cooler temps. Hope so.

      Thanks for visiting.

  12. Bella has the sweetest face and looks so loving! I'm so glad that you have her in your life. Please be careful in that terrible heat. I wish we could share our cool, mountain weather with you. It got up to 86 today and everyone thought it was "sweltering". We sometimes have to put up with snow and ice in the winter, but it's worth it for the cool summers. Those Sonic breakfasts sound great. That's another thing we don't have here. Guess life is a trade off. God bless!

    1. Thanks Bev. She has been a real blessing to me. We hit 101 today with a heat index of 110. So, we sort hibernated inside today. But then, I don't like ice and snow so guess I have to endure the hot summers.

      Thanks for dropping by.

  13. Bella is so sweet! My late husband and I had a blue tick hound and Bella reminds me of him. We got him from the pound also, and someone had named him Blue, we called him 'Blub'.

    It's nice to have a sweet companion.

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

  15. Thank you for the pictures of Bella. She looks much like the dog my son was given. She was his best friend through high school, college, and beyond. She took him through some difficult times.

    Isn't amazing how our dogs can "read" us.

    1. Oh my! Bella knows my every mood. If I am sick, she never leaves my bed. She knows when I'm getting dressed for church that she can't go and just watches. She knows if it's morning and we are going to Sonic, she goes and gets her leash and gets so excited. She is a blessing in every way.

      Thanks for visiting,

  17. Bella is adorable and what a blessing in our lives. Ginger is not too happy about being dressed up either but she looks so cute when she is . Dogs friendship is unwavering and so valuable in our likes.

    1. Everyone should have a loving dog in their lives. Only if they give the dog the love they deserve. Bella has been a real blessing to me especially the last 18 months.

      Have a good weekend.
