Everyone, meet Bella! She looks a lot like another Bella we all know and love here. Bella's Mom fell and broke her hip a few days ago and is going into rehab for a while. Bella is 12 and will be staying with us until her Mom is better and back at home. She and Petunia became fast friends today. Bella lives in our development less than a mile from us, but we had never met or seen her before. We got an email this morning that sort of came through the grapevine asking if we knew anyone who could watch a greyhound while her owner was in the hospital. A few phone calls later, Bella is relaxing in our living room. She is a real sweetheart. Based on her crazy ear maneuvers and her face, I'm guessing she is related to Rocket, but I don't have any info regarding her racing name yet. We will work on that to see if she's a Gable Dodge or Dodgem By Design girl. So, if you see Chris or I posting pictures of her, she is a visitor!
In the almost 4 years we have had Bella, we've heard her bark twice (other than in her sleep). Once in the first week we had her when the doorbell was rung for the first time; once when a neighbor dog was causing a big ruckus in the hall. Then there was tonight. I was waiting for DH at the train station (we only have the one car so that's the deal) and the guy in front of me was out of his car leaning against his back bumper waiting for someone. Bella perked up upon seeing him, started growling and then let out a big "WOOF!" She continued to growl and bark at him until he met his passenger and drove off, which was just as DH was getting to the car. I take her with me to the train station pretty often and she's never reacted to anyone like that. There didn't seem to be anything particular about him - he was decently dressed, probably mid 20's, Hispanic, clean-shaven - she's seen thousands of men like him. But I got the impression that there was something she didn't like and she was going to protect her mom! :beatheart Thanks Bella dear.
