A Leap of Faith

It takes a Leap of Faith to go from being dogless for 2 1/2 years to being a full time dog owner. My husband and I just took such a leap. We adopted a yellow lab from an animal rescue shelter. The pluses for Bella is she is rather mellow with a very sweet temperament. It also helps that she hardly barks and does not jump up on people. But we thought we were getting a 65 pound dog and in actuality turns out she weighs some 83 lbs. Yikes!!!! what were we thinking to rescue such a large dog.
I have to add by the time we purchased a kennel, food, toys, various other dog essentials and paid the adoption fees I could have almost paid for a new stove that has been on my wish list.
Bella won us over with her bright brown eyes and wagging tail. Of course she was quite happy to leave dreary shelter life behind and move on to dog heaven...the lake.
I posted a few pictures taken today.

  1. Congratulations! She is a lucky dog.
    Maybe there is a new story line in the future, with a canine protagonist?
