Splish Splash.....

They were taking a bath.Then along came Belle........ Belle, the killer attack dog, will jump at the chance to save her kids from the evil water splahes!! Belle would jump up on the side of the tub and try to eat the splashes. It was too funny. The kids would splash and Belle would get a running start, then jump up on the tub to eat the splashes. The kids were cracking up, and making quiet a mess. There was water everywhere. Opps! I don't think Belle made it that jump!! She is so clumsy still. Her front paws are so huge. Plus the tub was super slippery, I am sure that didn't help at all. "Belle, Come Here!! Come on Belle!!"Belle got to lick Cowpokette's face. Then there was the crazy approach. Belle would jump up and twist her front end around with her tongue hanging out trying to catch some of the water! It was just too much fun for all involved. And the clean up wasn't too bad either. I got to mop the bathroom floor. It was due for a good washing anyway. It's so much fun to actually have a dog that likes to play with my kids. My other dogs have always been big couch potatoes. They were good for loving on, but they weren't much in the fun playing department. It has been an adventure for me to train Belle, but she is super smart and really willing. And the kids love to play with her. Plus Belle has started getting protective of the kids. She will bark when someone knocks. She will also try to defend Brodi dog. Brodi is scared of the kids cork gun. So, when the kids have it ou,t Brodi tries to hide, but the kids chase him anyway, but now Brodi has back up. Belle will get in front of Brodi and bark at the gun. And she will jump back and forth as the kids wave it around. I love that she is not scared of anything. And she isn't afraid to stick up for a friend. I am sure Brodi appreciates all Belle does for him. We were lucky to get such a good girl.

We met a huge bulldog last week, who was just entirely too cool. Made me think of how much fun Belle is going to be for you guys as she gets older!

She is a beautiful girl Andrea! Glad she came into your lives!!!
