Spotlight Thursday – Meet Bella

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!


Name:  Bella

Age:  5

Location:  Stockbridge, Georgia

Web/Blog Page:  N/A – I can’t risk anything taking away from my play time  (Bella will be checking in for messages.  Please my friends – let’s welcome Bella to the world of Blogville.) 


What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Mom was the first one I met and I knew right away that she was going to cater to my every whim.  She seemed so happy to meet me.  Lots of smiling and even a little teary.  I had her rubbing my belly and playing ball with me within the first few minutes.  After just a short visit with me at my foster mom’s, she was completely hooked.  She put me in the car seat and we were off to go shopping!  We did have to pull over before too long though.  I had dropped my ball!  And since I’m not allowed out of my car seat, what choice did she have really?  Anyway, once we got to the store, I got new accessories to wear and tons of treats and toys.  We had so much fun picking out toys.  I got final approval before anything went into the cart.  Finally, we were on our way home where I got to meet Dad.  He was excited to see me too!  They made me feel so comfortable and I knew they loved me already.  I noticed right away though that they had other children.  That definitely concerned me.  I really require a lot of attention and I wasn’t sure how this was going to work out now.  It didn’t take long before I realized that the other kids were much, much older and did a lot of sleeping.  So, I was happy again.  My new parents made it pretty clear that I would get as much attention as I wanted and that they could even pay attention to all of us.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Oh, I think I knew that right away!  Mom talked to me all the time and just seemed so happy to have me there.  My first night, she rubbed my tummy in bed right beside her until I went to sleep.  She also let me keep lots of my toys in bed with us.  I like having them with me wherever I am.  Especially those little tennis balls!  Those are the greatest things ever!  Sometimes I even sleep with one in my mouth.  And, uh, did I mention she pulled the car over to get my ball I dropped just 10 minutes after getting on the road?  Yeah, I knew she was keeping me and I was happy about it.

 What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  If I’m honest here, I really don’t get into trouble.  Some may think I’m on the spoiled side, but whatever…  There was one occasion I got yelled at big time and it scared me stiff!  Mom had opened the front door, and didn’t say “stay” that time, so I ran out and straight down the driveway.  Next thing I know, she was screaming at me and running right behind me!  I just stopped right where I was and laid down.  I wasn’t sure what I did wrong, but I know Mom was really scared and mad at me.  Ever since then, if I act like I want to take off out the front door, she’s really quick to tell me to stay.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  So easy!  That’s definitely Mom.  She’ll stop anything she’s doing if I want sit in her lap or I want her to throw the ball.  One of my favorite things to do is roll my ball under the furniture and stare at her until she comes to get it.  I know it’s a silly thing to do, but I like checking once in a while that she’s going to come to my rescue.  Of course, she always does.  I know Mom tries to spend as much time with me as she can too.  In fact, I think she used to sew a lot before I came.  I remember shortly after I moved in, she went in her room one day to sew something.  I was kind of in the mood to play ball though, so I kept going to the door with the ball in my mouth looking as pitiful as I possibly could.  She kept telling me to wait a few minutes and we would play soon.  I tried to wait.  I really did!  But it just seemed like it was taking forever and I certainly didn’t want her to forget that I was waiting either.  So, to rush things along, I started stepping on that pedal thing she was stepping on too.  I’m not sure if I really was helping, but I do know she quit sewing and we were playing ball.  I don’t think I’ve seen her sew since then.  To be fair, I’m pretty attached to her too.  I love snuggling and giving Mom kisses and I always give her plenty of hugs when she comes home from work so she knows I missed her.  I never go to bed without her either.  I always wait for her (this makes her feel guilty when she’s has to work really late).  Anyway, it all works out.  She knows I’m happy to be with her too.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Me personally?  That’s a tough one.  I guess it depends on the humans.  Some may think it is crazy how much importance is placed on me.  Like I have no feelings and shouldn’t matter so much.  Those are the ones who are crazy.  I make it perfectly clear when I’m happy or pouting or feeling needy or whatever.  There is no way to not know I have feelings!  Therefore, I matter a great deal.  I have likes and dislikes, I love attention, I form attachments…  Oh, I could rant about this for days.  That’s probably the misconception that bothers me most.  THEN, there are those people who look at me and come to the strange conclusion that I am too spoiled!  I really don’t know how to even respond to them.  Too spoiled?  Ridiculous.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Bella – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Weekend Over – YAY!

Sigh – oinks – snorts.  The weekend is over.  Did you have fun?  What did you do?  Me? Well, I slept a lot to get plenty of rest.  I also ate a lot.  It’s hard maintaining this beautiful pot belly physique.

Yesterday, we watched movies on television all day long.  It was the best time!

Mommy actually pulled out all of her Twilight movies – all FIVE of them for a marathon.  Daddy even watched – he lost a bet so it was mom’s choice – go mom.  You know the Twilight movies, right?  Most people go Team Edward or Team Jacob.  I think there needs to be a Team BACON – what do you think? Snorts.

It was a great LONG day full of wolves, love and vampires.  Mom even fixed popcorn – and yeah I let her take a picture of me.  This was delicious popcorn – popped on the stove the old fashioned way – yummy and smells good!

XOXO – Team Bacon

Take that Twilight

I know I talk about me a lot but let me tell you something about mom.  She’s a Twilight freak.  Not the time of day – the movie.  You know it – the vampires, wolves oh my movie.  I’m not saying that she’s read the books or seen the movies too much but she quotes the lines a lot.  She knows the characters.  And let me tell you something – she collects these figures that look like them.  She calls them her collectible Barbies.  Shakes head – I think mom has gone over board.  So, I have to have an intervention with her – snort giggles.

One of the main characters in these books is a girl called Bella.  Beautiful girl.  But, my take on Bella is so much better.  I have to pick on mom with this one.  I’m going to post and then go into hiding.  When she sees it, she’ll find me.  I’m not giving her the password to take this picture off here either.  SNORT – enjoy!
