    Default De's Bella

    De, I have copied your post from your introduction thread to here as it will be seen more.

    Hi and thanks again for the welcome. I finally have the time to post more about our "beautiful girl" Bella. She was a street dog, picked from the pound and on death row. Our kids were old enough to understand how to behave with a dog, we had a fully fenced yard with self closing gates, so the scene was set. I'd rung the pound and let them know what type of dog I was after, and made an appt to see her. I pulled up in the car, and there she was, sitting happily and smiling at me. We have a cat (Midnight) so we brought her out and let her wander around the cat cages. No aggression with them at all. She then went to a "half way house" so her temperament could be assessed etc. A long 3 days! When I picked her up, I was told she had a beautiful nature. It was straight off to the vet, where she was cleared of disease etc, but she had a ****y heart. (see 1st post) I booked her in to be spayed in a week. I wanted her to get to know us all, and settle into her new home before it was done. Kept an eye closely on her in case she went in to season, but she didn't so all went well. She is a wonderful family dog, devoted and loyal. She developed a lump on her leg about a year ago, and the vet said it was cancer. Too late to do anything as it would be through her body. she was 12. He recommended a special cancer food, but after 3 days Bella became morose and moped around at dinner time. I thought "bugger this" and went back to feeding her as usual. I thought she was going to lick me to death!!! She's still agile, with shining eyes , wet nose and wagging tail. Yes, the lump is much bigger and more are appearing, but in every other way she is healthy. Not bad for a dog with a ****y heart that could have dropped dead 13 years ago! lol. I've sent Di some pics I took last night (yes, I finally got batteries for the camera) so I'm hoping she'll put them on her. Now you can nag her and not me! .....

    She is. She is very protective of her home, especially if food is cooking, lol. She knows me well and is always so welcoming yet she will bail up others.

    So true! In fact, her favourite game is with the JW's who frequently come door knocking. Bella always heads to the door when the bell rings, and barks a few times. When I open the main door, (we have a security screen as well)she has an uncanny knack of knowing they are "religious callers." Maybe it's cos they always seem to wear hats. Anyway, instead of shutting up, she furiously barks at them with fangs bared, and shaking all over. Good thing they can't see around the door cos the reason she's shaking is that her tail is wagging furiously. After a few polite comments, raised above the din, they wave goodbye and head off. We've saved heaps of trees cos they don't try and give me a brochure as it would require the door to be opened! Once I shut the main door, she gives me the biggest grin, spins around in circles then heads to the water bowl to sooth her poor dry throat. She then has a nap with a smile on her face....

    Bella is very cute, she reminds me of the Sparky the Jackrussell I had when I was young.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone! Oh yes, we have our own chairs. Bella knows that is her one, but loves me to be there with her. The only problem is the white dog hair on black clothes, but it's a small price to pay for a cuddle.
