Dear Bella…

28 Jan

This letter is to you…one I know you’ll read some day because you might just be the smartest dog on this planet.

And to think not a soul wanted you because you didn’t have that beloved ‘English Blaze’ running up your nose and between your eyes.  Even your owners told us that we probably wouldn’t want you and they had resolved to keeping you.

Once we saw your precious little face, we knew you were the one.  The one that might be able to fill the hole left in our hearts when sweet, little Josie had kidney failure at 13 years old.  The one who Sweet P wanted so badly because she couldn’t stand not having Josie anymore.

We wanted to rescue an English Springer because of the simple fact…there are too many displaced animals in this world.

And, we tried to foster…but Bubbie was just too young for an adult doggie to understand.

It was a hard decision and we were devastated.

And then we found you in Crawford, Texas.

And you have rocked our world.

You might just be the cutest thing alive…

Especially when you give me those puppy dog eyes…

You bury your brand new bones in the backyard…find them a month later…then track a dirty, wet one through the house…

And ransack our bathrooms for toilet paper…over..and over…

And over again.  We’ve nicknamed you “ratfink”…you ratfink.

You stand watch over Bubbie while he takes his baths…and get pelted with bubbles in return…

And then get him back by taking his beloved blue #4 car…

But then you are BFF’s again…and Bubbie teaches you math facts on the back door.

You love your little penguin, which I have no clue where it came from…

but it entertains you in my office while I work.

You get endless amount of snuggles from Sweet P…

How dare someone say we wouldn’t want you…

What you talkin’ about, Willis?

What a lucky family we are to have you…little Belly Welly Doodle Bug.

Love you Bella!

    What a little sweetie! I can’t wait to meet her. Too bad we live so far apart because Oscar and Arnold would love to play with her! Great pictures Carrie! Really good. Looking at your pics inspires my to try harder with my photography. I need some photography education. :)

    What kind of dog is Bella, exactly? I have a couple hunches, but I’m not positive. She’s absolutely beautiful!
