Happy Birthday Bella

Our sweet girl, Bella, turned two on Sunday! Bella has been such a wonderful addition to our little family and we love her so much. I still remember the day when we saw Bella for the first time, as we immediately fell in love with her.

“Oh, what’s that?”

BELLA IM NOT PAMPERED

This is a typical scene at our house with Bella. As you can see, Bella is not pampered at all. She loves being covered up when she naps with Teddy.

BELLA AND NIKITA MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME

Look at how little Bella was when we brought her home for the first time at two months old. Bella and Nikita fell in love with each other that day and have been best buddies ever since.

BELLA AND NIKITA

This photograph is so silly, as you can see Bella sticking her tongue out at Nikita! Nikita was probably thinking “Is she staying here?”

Happy Birthday sweet Bella, we love you!

Happy Birthday Nikita!

Today is our sweet girl’s 3rd birthday!  Nikita woke up to find that someone left her a Happy Birthday note on the driveway.

DRIVEWAY CHALK

She has been pampered all day, got her teeth brushed, groomed, and probably by days end, she might even have her toenails painted pink!

DREAMING OF TREATS

We haven’t told her yet, but we’re taking her to the store so she can pick out some new toys and get her some Frosty Paws as a treat!  She deserves the best because she is the most loving dog in the whole world.

Happy Birthday Bella

BELLA 1ST BIRTHDAY

The calendar on our fridge says that it’s my birthday tomorrow (6/29), and I don’t know what a birthday is, because this is my First Birthday that I am celebrating.  I don’t know where I came from, but all I know is that I was found wandering on the streets when I was really tiny until I was rescued by my Mommy & Daddy and they gave me a forever home.

BELLA DRESSED UP

From the day I was rescued, I have been treated like a princess and have been provided everything in the world.  I have a wonderful home to live in, good food to eat, and endless supply of treats, an overflowing box with toys to play with, a great Sister (Nikita) whom I get to play with every day, the best Mommy & Daddy in the world, and a fluffy bed to snuggle in when I need to lay my head down to rest.

Life is good.  From walks everyday with Mommy, to the attention that I get each and every day, the endless hugs and kissies, to the pampering of paw wipes when I come in from a rainy lawn, to the baths that I get when I roll in something in the yard, to the ice cubes Mommy puts in my water bowl, and all the tricks I am taught how to do.  A never ending supply of love.

Mommy and I also do something really fun together.  She started doing this with me when I was younger and it just stuck with me.  Since she is always in the kitchen cooking awesome dinners for Daddy, she has to put on these huge mitts every time she opens up that big thing that cooks their food, and when she does….I go into action.  I wait for her to close the door on that food cooking thing (as she tells me to stay away when she opens the door because it is hot), but when the door closes, she puts her mitts up in the air and….. we box!  Yep, Mommy and I are dooking it out in the kitchen, going round and round in circles, as she throws soft punches at my face, and I fight right back and smack her mitts with my front paws. I can stand on my hind legs pretty good, so this is fun for me.  But, what is neat that Mommy taught me, is that when she goes “Ding Ding” to end our boxing round, I sit down.  She then pulls the gloves out from behind her back and we box again, going round and round in circles.  “Ding Ding” the round ended, and I sit down.  It is the most hilarious thing in the world, and Daddy sits and watches us and laughs really hard.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELLA

I am so thankful for all the wonderful times that have been shared with me and mostly, I am thankful for being rescued from the streets and placed in my forever home as this is the happiest place on the face of the earth.

Here are some of my favorite photographs of my wonderful life!

The calendar says it is my birthday and now I know what birthdays are all about! Birthdays celebrate our life and our happiness with those who share it with us. Birthdays are special, and my first birthday is one that I will never forget.  Thank you Daddy & Mommy for showering me with so much love & affection and giving me a forever home, a place that I can call my own.  Woof.
