Bella {A Dog's Story}
Memorize the words to this song because you’re going to need them in a minute.

I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay,
And I pity any girl who isn’t me today.I feel charming
Oh so charming
It’s alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty that I hardly can believe I’m real.

Can you hear that song in your head or are you too young to know it? It originated in the movie West Side Story, but you might remember it from the movie with Jack Nicholson called Anger Management.

Bella loves to play and this yellow squeaky toy is her favorite.

I wish I could say I like the toy too and if you had asked me last week, I would probably have said that I did, but last night changed my opinion. While walking ever so softly in the dark at 2:00 a.m. and trying to remain totally silent to avoid waking man, child, turtle or dog, I stepped squarely on top of the squeaky toy which released a sound like a herd of pigs at a farm.

herd of pigs on a farm

Do not say that you think they are cute!
The sound from the toy didn’t wake anyone or anything, but it nearly gave me a heart attack.
Bella is definitely spoiled and with her new accessory, she looks so pretty! That’s the cue to start singing the song I mentioned above…You did memorized the words, didn’t you?

Sing!  I feel pretty….!

Wait!!! I’m pretty too! Got a bow?

aw, what a cute dog! And now I do have that song in my mind 🙂 It'll be there the rest of the day, but it beats the Justin Bieber one I had in my mind driving me crazy all day yesterday…
