we’re going on a walkie

my little bella girl needs to loose weight.

no, her neck is not broken…. she’s just a strange monster

bella is our little rescue pup. she lived next door to one of the fire stations my husband worked at several years ago. the family left her chained up in the backyard 24/7. she had an igloo, but that was about it. majority of her food & water came from the firemen or mother nature.

g has a heart of gold and couldn’t bear to see a living thing hurting like that. so after having a conversation with the family… he picked her up one morning as we started making arrangements to deliver her to stray rescue. stray rescue is a local, no-kill (!) shelter in the st louis area. they are a wonderful organization. check them out by clicking on the pictureLogo

i guess because it was the weekend… or perhaps it was meant to be… we couldn’t seem to get through to have someone come pick her up. 5 years later she’s an integral part of our pack.


tucker is younger, healthier, and much happier with her around.

this last weekend, at the vet, we weighed in. t is 58 lbs (maybe a pound or two heavy) and b is 72 (!!!!!) pounds. 

MOM! you don’t gotta say everything you know!”IMG 2525

b is going on a diet. we’re going back to carrots as treats and daily walkies!!
