A Private Butterfly

by Sherry Riter in Bella {a dog's story}  ,Family

Some things are public.

Some things are private.

Sitting on the couch with Bella in the late afternoon sun is a little of both.

Obviously, Bella was quite comfortable today. Even the cute little gray elephant couldn’t entice her to play.

The comfy couch and the warmth from the bright rays of sun make it hard to stay awake.

Bella thinks she is human and if truth be told, I talk to her like my best friend – a best human friend.

However, Bella is a dog hence the need for a private butterfly.

What a cutie pie! She is so modest! She has your curls too! Our fur babies are talked to as if they are people too! Thanks for sharing Bella with us!~Lisa

Yes, Bella is modest because she is a Queen. LOL

Dog and Butterfly… Remember that song by Heart? You reminded me of it with the wonderful Bella pics! She is so cute!

You seem to talk to and about your Bella like I feel about my Anya (she’s a 12 pound Cavachon). It’s great to include our best friend pets in our lives.

I had to Google “Cavachon” because I had no idea what kind of pet it was and now I know it is an adorable dog!!! Obviously, your Anya is as easy to love as Bella 🙂

OMG Bella! What you have to put up with just so Granny can write a post! The indignity of it all! It’s a good thing you have fur, because you would never make it as a nudist! 🙂

Bella doesn’t mind her picture taken a million times “most” of the time. I will have to post a picture soon of how she looks when she is aggravated that I am taking her picture. It will make you just laugh out loud!
