Notes from Bella, the neurotic Beardie

A new cousin

RL's brother lives in Kansas City with his wife and 3 kids. The kids have been here to visit me, but I've never had a chance to meet their golden retriever, Scout, or their little white dog, Belle (and just to be clear, I was Bella before she came along.) On Tuesday night, RL told me that they added a new golden puppy to their family, a sweetie named Bowe (pronounced B long-o). RL was mooning around the next day, asking me if I wanted another dog in the house (duh, yes). Our house is very small, so it would be really fun to romp and fight and play everywhere. I think RL is thinking the same thing, but not in a good way.

February update

Hmmmm...I didn't realize it's been 2 months since I posted last. It's been horribly cold here and that means that both RL and I are not as active. Sometimes I think I want to run around and get outside but the pads on my paws get really cold and I decide I want to come back in right away.
We've had a lot of snow, too. Last week I was saying "hi" to Larry at the back fence....the place where the garden is built up....and I found out that with all the snow piled up there, I could jump right over! RL and Larry got busy right away and strung up some kind of green mesh so I couldn't do it again. But I'll just wait until they forget about it and try another side of the yard.
It has warmed up a bit and RL has got it into her head that it's time to groom me again. She takes me outside and has a pocket full of ham and cheese, but I still hate it. I do look incredibly beautiful when she's done though.
