Belle at 15 Weeks
I have gone a little picture crazy since I got my new camera. So, sorry ahead of time for way too many pictures. But I am just having way too much fun. Belle went to the vet yesterday and weighed 25 pounds. My goodness, she is only 15 weeks. The Vet called her, "Little Chunk of Change." And she is. My own little Brick House. She is very active. But we give her plenty of outdoor run around time. I am grateful for active little kids that like to play with her. And we go on daily walks. I love those. Exercise for me and get the puppy tired. Double bonus. Belle has one of those sweet innocent faces. For the most part she really is a good puppy. Occasionally I have to tell her not to chew on something, but that is normal. She is house broke and doesn't bark all night when she is kenneled. So, I really can't complain. She still has that bulldog look to her. She will keep all her wrinkles. Which I think will be cute. She will always look like a puppy. I love puppies. I could own hundreds of puppies. I have a horrible talent for house breaking puppies. I don't know why, but I am good at it. Maybe I am driven to house break them because I do not want my wood floors or rugs ruined? I think that Belle has had maybe 5 accidents in the house since we got her at 8 weeks old. She also is protective. She has started to bark when someone knocks on the door. I like it when my dogs sound all scary when the doorbell rings or someone knocks. That is the whole point, to me, for having inside dogs. For the scary factor. There is Belle doing her best Bulldog impression. She is starting to get wide in her shoulders. Really starting to look the bulldog part. But then there is this thing that she does when you talk to her......She cocks her head to one side and acts like she is really listening to what you have to say. I love it. I could just squeeze her when she does that. Brodi is also happy to be her big brother. He has become a lot more playful since we got Belle. He will lay down and play growl with Belle. It's so sweet to see my old man act young again. There Brodi is trying hard to look like a bulldog. I think sometimes he gets a little jealous. But at the end of the day, Brodi is the one who sleeps at the foot of our bed. All in all they both are good dogs. Brodi is so laid back I think it plays off with Belle. Today I make the great trek to the state's capitol. I hope everyone has a wonderful New Years Eve!! And today is the last day for my Sucker Giveaway!! If you haven't left a comment yet, you have until Midnight tonight!! Well, I will see you all next year!!
