Notes from Bella, the neurotic Beardie

Not me, but her

I would like to point out that the last post was not written by me, but by RL herself. (Note that she refers to me as "Bella.") RL was trying to find any excuse to drive out to the Apple store and get an iPhone. I don't even know what they are. Now, if there was an iBone I might be interested.

Bella is telling me that she absolutely MUST have an iPhone, but I think she just wants a ride in the car and is using the launch of the phone to get me to take her on the errand.

RL took this picture of road construction just down the street from our house. They are working everyday all summer. I'm glad they're not coming any closer. That noise would be so terrifying that I'd never come out of the closet!

Driving with Miss Bella

Have I said how much I love it when RL drives me around? (Don't ask how she got that last picture. I'm not sure it was safe driving!)

Hide and seek food bowl

I don't trust my food. RL puts it down and I immediately try and push it somewhere where I can't see it. In the winter, when RL has a rug on the floor, I can pull it over the food, but in the summer I have to work harder.
RL was out for dinner last night and when she came home she asked where my bowl was (she's always interested in whether I eat or not). She walked around the house several times and finally found it in between some boxes on the dining room floor. It took a lot of effort to push it out of the kitchen, into the dining room and then behind those boxes! And she wonders what I do all day!

I'm a grooming challenge, I'll admit it. Not only do I grow a mat in the blink of an eye, but I have to admit that I can get nasty when RL hits a sensitive spot. This spring we agreed to just cut off most of my coat and start over again. Last night RL took me out on the porch and brushed out my face and I have to admit, I look pretty cute again. I know she loves me, but now I look like I'm loved.

Basement time

BFF Jaeger is at a family picnic today, so I'm spending time in the and dark. Maybe RL will take me for a car ride tonight!

PS....Bookpuppy, you should try plastic pens and bones for chewing....they're awesome!

This is Jaeger, my BFF and RL's niece Briana. She brought her dog Barklee, too, but he wouldn't sit for the photo.

I hate Fridays

Don't ask me how I know, but I do. The moment RL comes to get me from my sleeping pen (which I love) I can sense it's a bad day. In fact, I won't even go out to the yard to pee. It's just better if I head upstairs to my favorite closet and try and forget about the garbage trucks and recycling trucks that are threatening my world this morning.
RL tries to tell me that they've never hurt us in the past, but I know it's only a matter of time. She sits out on the deck and doesn't know that she's about to be run over by one of them. There's room on the closet floor for her if she would only figure it out.
