BELLA, SR. 8/11/06
Pertinent Information - Adopted 1/07
1/07 - Bella has been adopted
12/5/06 - Bella is pending adoption with her foster family.
Bella finally went to the vet. The vet believes she is probably about 8yrs old possibly a little older.
Bella continues do
well. Her appetite has improved and she has put on some weight.
Her coat looks much better and even some of the growths on her have
shrunk. She does seem to have a little stiffness when first
getting up after that she does well. She doesn't like to be
outside by herself and will wait for Eve before she leaves the deck.
Other then not being alone she doesn't appear to be fazed by much.
She will knock down all the gates in the house. The noise doesn't
bother her even getting hit by the gate when it falls doesn't bother
her. We still have the problem of her running if she gets loose.
She has done that twice and we did have a hard time getting her back.
9/13/06 - Bella has definitely made herself at home. Now that she's more comfortable here she has started to get into some trouble when we're out. The most recent one was she pulled a whole container of sauce off the counter and her and Eve proceeded to have an Italian lunch. Now Bella is kept in the living room whenever we go out. Bella has started to chase birds and rabbits in the yard. We're still working on getting her to come when we call. She listens very well in the house but not at all when she's off her leash. She's put on some weight and now looks healthier. We are enjoying having her.
9/2/06 - Bella is still doing great. She actually has started to play with some of the toys that Eve leaves everywhere. She was so funny throwing it around with such force that she would go flying into furniture and walls. It sounded like she was killing something. Eve ran and hid. We're still working on keeping her from trying to run out whenever the front door is open, I think that will take sometime.
- We've all been so
busy we haven't been good about updating Bella's page. Bella
continues to settle in nicely. She did however give us a small
heart attack the other day. When my niece went out the front door
Bella made a run for it as well. Unlike Eve who knows not to go
off our property Bella just kept running. We had a hard time
keeping her in our sites as she had no interest in making sure we were
following her. She ran about a mile before deciding to check out a
nearby horse farm. Luckily for us the horses were angels and
didn't kick the barking dog running between their legs. Bella
finally decided she had enough and came to me. Since then we have
been working hard on front door do's and don'ts. Eve and Bella
continue to get along wonderfully. They have even
- Bella continues
to do well. We've had our niece and nephews staying with us for
the past week.
8/18/06 - Bella continues to settle in nicely. We have been leaving her in the kitchen at night and when we go out without any problems. Bella is such a good she didn't even touch the loaf of bread that my son left open and at the edge of the counter. It was definitely well within Bella's reach. Bella and Eve are getting along well. Bella continues to have little interest in playing with Eve and when she does try to play it is only for a few minutes. Bella is a real sweetie who always tries to please.
Bella had a pretty good day today.
It was her 3rd full day with us. She and our dog Eve are getting
along fairly well. Eve has tried several times to get Bella to
play but she doesn't seem too interested in playing. She spends
most of her time walking around the yard and sleeping by the pool.
Bella does have some food issues. She will not let Eve near her
food. She growled once at her for walking near her dish and
growled and snapped at Eve when she came over near the grill where there
was some grease on the deck that Bella was licking. She didn't
bite Eve she just letting her know she wasn't going to share.
Bella has been with us for not
quite 2 days. She is so sweet and loveable. She has had no
