Meet Bella

Recommended Posts

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!

How relieved her person must be that Bella has a wonderful bed-breakfast-buddy place to stay in.  Crazy that the grapevine hadn't alerted you long ago to the presence of another hound in the development.

This development is massive. I just looked it up out of curiosity and we have 3,910 homes in 44 neighborhoods. The majority of them are snowbird homes, so the people are only here a few months out of the year.  In the summer, those of us who are year-round pretty much hibernate in the AC due to the desert heat, so I would bet there are several other greyhounds in here that we haven't found yet.  Right now I know of 6 total including Petunia and Bella, and 2 of those are snowbird hounds from Pennsylvania. 

Nearby we have Sun City AZ (borders our development in places) and we see greyhounds walking in there all the time. We know there are a lot of them in the immediate vicinity when you add-in Sun City and the other neighborhoods that border us.
