{This Moment} See Beautiful - Sometimes she's just a normal dog

Every day that Bella has a "normal" dog experience is one of absolute beauty to me...

Last week, we received a package in the mail and it came wrapped in heavy paper.

In her almost 5 years with us, Bella has never stepped on paper or a box...

Last week, she traipsed right over the packing paper and even initiated play with me.

What many might find an every day occurrence, an annoyance even, for us became an event of unique beauty.



With paper.

There is beauty in the smallest of life's moments.

We need only remember to look for them.

See Beautiful, Sugar.


  1. Woof! Woof! It sure is ... unique moments are beautiful.  Joyful Bella, her tail kept on wagging. Happy This Moment See Beautiful Friday. Happy Seeing Beautiful. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. I just read your Bella story, and I am so happy that Bella was playing with paper! I have my first very shy and fearful dog in my life right now. She arrived in late August, and it has been a learning experience. She was isolated in a cage, having no life experience, for the 1st nine months of her life.

    I did a little dance this week when she saw a new piece to the vacuum cleaner. Rather than freaking out, she picked it up and brought it to me. What a victory! Beautiful like Bella!

  3. She is looking very beautiful. A dogs personality never ceases to amaze me.

  4. Oh Bella, you have made us grin from ear to ear.  WE loved your video.  It is Beautiful.....
