Bella the bully

The photo below will bring tears to the eyes of most men… A relaxing day that turned nasty.

The sight of two sturdy males (Andy and Roscoe) having their hammock rudely occupied by “high-jump” Bella, the “lady” American Staffordshire Terrier (white & black), may be too much to bear.

She launched herself onto the hammock and two occupants in one go with a snappy 2 metre jump.

There was not even enough space left for the fleas!

Bella’s ride to the beach

Bella’s warm chair

Bella has found a new chair that is warm and moves around with her. It is a “Roscoe” type chair.

There is nothing as grand as sitting on an 11 year old male dog when you are a 5 month old female puppy!

The photo below was taken a while later when the chair got too hot.

Bella and the Bone

Previously in “Of young girls and old men” it was clear that Roscoe needed a “permanent” friend so along came Bella.

The “old man” Roscoe is over the moon and Bella is clearly carrying on where Charlie left off.

Introducing Bella

We have a new addition to the family and her name is Bella (AKA Nike amongst her litter).

The “old man” Roscoe is over the moon with his new playmate who, at 13 weeks, started giving him the runaround within 2 hours.

She growled, snapped, chewed, ran away and tried to climb on him.

Bella arrived yesterday and Roscoe has had his hands full since then (out of breath and gasping for air).

PS – Nike has clearly been given a firm footing in life and good upbringing thus far by her previous “mom” Mariana.

On the way home Nike started squealing and became a little agitated. It soon became apparent why when a deposit of properly digested Hills dog food was dumped inside the vehicle (I’m sure if she could have, Nike would have “gone outside”).

I also noticed her standing at the back door wanting to enter the house. She then suddenly ran to the garden (grass area) and urinated.

As I type / compile this post, Bella (Nike) is sleeping like a baby (well she is) on a mat inside the house (a little break from Roscoe).

Last night, I got up to see how they were doing. Both Bella and Roscoe were cuddled up on a blanket next to each other. Roscoe could have slept elsewhere but chose to look after and guard his young lady.
