I’ve Got A Beautiful Name

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

In November 2009, I told everyone my name. Then in March 2010, we got a cute little red poodle puppy that Alyssa named Bella.

Anyway, the name tag that hangs from Bella’s collar has always been too tempting for her, so she chews it like crazy. Obviously, the name tag has gotten dilapidated. However, a pure bred poodle deserves more than a chewed up name tag especially with a name that means beautiful, so Alyssa bought her a new name tag. Nice, huh?

I sure love this little dog and I’m pretty sure she knows I love her right back.

Awwwww the little Bella Boo! (I hope you do not mind that I added the Boo to Bella’s name. Bella Boo sounds so endearing.) As always, Bella Boo looks so cute as she poses proudly for her picture with her new name tag! And yes I am sure Bella Boo knows that she is a VERY LOVED DOG with a beautiful name! 🙂

I just realized after I published my comment, the nerve of me to nickname your dog! But we all feel that Bella is our dog too since you share so much about her with us. Ahhh, the beauty of having a phantom dog and nicknaming her too! We get to have all the joys and pleasure of having a dog and none of the responsibility of ownership! 🙂

You can come over and clean up her poop any time you feel the urge.



7 Joan March 29, 2013 at 2:35 pm

No, thank you! I have cleaned up enough poop in my days and it hasn’t always been dog poop! 🙂

Did I just call Bella a phantom dog? Bella, please pardon me. I know that you do exist! Maybe I’m the phantom commenter. You never know! 🙂

Ha! Neither of you are phantom and I know that for a fact.
1. You should hear Bella’s blood curdling yap when she sees a cat
2. Phantoms don’t spent an hour on a 5 sentence comment. They copy and paste spammy stuff. LOL
I think I proved my point.
