Generally, I am not a dog person. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against dogs. I have had or been around dogs all of my life. But my preference for a pet is a cat. Ironically, I don't have a cat. I do, however, have a dog. This dog. Her name is Bella. She is the closest pet to a cat that you could wish for. She snuggles in your lap every time you sit. She zeroes in on the people who are not necessarily dog-fans and makes them relate to her. She is highly interactive with her humans. She also has some very dog-like tendencies. She is quite talkative. She really, truly does care about who is at the door. She is a table-scrap aficionado. She likes to dance. She has a propensity to lick people. A lot. But, doggone it, I like the little critter! Plus, when I show her a new jewelry piece or glass beads I have made, she seems genuinely interested. Or else she thinks it is a treat. Either way, I'm flattered.

  1. I can see how she reeled you in! Dare I say she even looks like she has kissable lips!!

  2. Aww! I miss that little Bella Button...Miss Fuzzy McFuzzles. I was just showing a movie of all the fuzzies and walking the herd of them. Thank you for the picture. I was very glad to hear about here. Molly says, Wang!

  3. I've had her picture up for the last two hours and keep coming back. I miss the little squirt. I need to give her a bunch of smooches. Can you give them to her for me? Does she still do the "growly dolly"? She would be flattened and comfortable on the couch. When I would pick her up for bed, she would grumble. It was the only time she grumbled.

  4. To tinyart: She likes to think that her lips are kissable! I think she looks like an Ewok, from Return of the Jedi. All she needs is a spear.

    To Jenn: She still does the growly thing, usually when you try to move her once she's all cozy. I can relate.

  5. ...ooOOoohh so cute...she's really, really cute...BTW, check out my kitty too... =^..^=
