Wordy Wednesday 130 - Bella here

Hello friends,

Bella here.

Mom says she's sorry she hasn't been posting recently muttering something about her crazy dog taking up all her time. Does she have another dog somewhere because I do not believe she'd call me crazy. Not to my face anyway. Would she?

Anyway, I told her if she wasn't going to update you on all things me, I would and so she let me take over the keyboard for a bit. But this is really hard without opposable thumbs so it'll be short.

I wanted to thank everyone who has been sending me all their positive vibes - I can really feel how much everyone is rooting for me to get better.

Mom and Dad took me to the Foster Small Animal Hospital today for something they called an "MRI" but all that happened was mom ran back and forth between the car and the building and when she came out one last time, we drove home. That was okay with me because I was starving since they had somehow forgotten to feed me my breakfast! Can you imagine?

I think I heard that we're going to go back there again tomorrow. If this "MRI" thing means I just get to drive in the car and hang out around the hospital for a little while and then get extra treats and cuddles, I think I'd be game to go for one every day.

My front legs have been feeling pretty sore though and mom won't let me do anything like run or jump or go downstairs or even get on the furniture. She keeps saying they're going to fix me up and I sure hope they do because I'm getting a little tired of the pain.

My tummy's been feeling good though. No diarrhea or puking in a few months so that's all good. And now I get this really spiffy food for dinner that mom cooks on the weekends for me. It tastes so good I even usually eat all my breakfast without a fuss now. And mom's happy about what comes out the other end, if you know what I mean. She keeps telling me I'm a good girl but I'm kind of only doing what comes natural, you know?

Mom's reminding me that I should tell you all I've been a real good and brave girl especially considering how they've been letting people I don't know poke and prod me. Says I've been "a real trooper" through all this. (I think that means she's glad I haven't bitten anyone lately. Yeah, well, don't push it lady, we all have our limits.)

So that's all the news that's fit to print about me today. If you happen to think of it tomorrow, give me a 'power of the paw' nod because I don't think "MRI" means sit outside the hospital and eat cookies. I could be wrong but I'm a little nervous about it.

Mom's been keeping all my friends on Facebook informed if you want to drop by there tomorrow night, she'll probably tell you how it went.

Thanks again for thinking of me. I may run away from you if we were ever to meet in person but I'm okay with meeting you all in cyberspace.

Your pal,


  1. Thinking of you, Bella. One of my dogs had an MRI - and she said she didn't remember anything but the cookies afterwards.

  2. Thanks KB, that's good to hear. And thanks for thinking of us. (Got your message on an earlier post but I just haven't been able to get my act together...)

    Hope you're feeling okay and all your pups are doing well. I stop in and gawk at your beautiful photos regularly. Our best to you and the pups.

  3. All 8 paws here in the house are crossed for you, Bella! And Dee's throwing 2 thumbs up for your tummy feeling better!

  4. So glad to hear you are being so brave Bella, and that you're not having any stomach issues on top of your legs hurting you. Good luck today with the MRI. Sending lots of good heeling vibes your way.

  5. Best of luck sweetheart, we're thinking of you!

  6. I'm sorry to hear they 'forgot' to feed you! Something tells me that MIGHT happen again tomorrow -- blame the MRI! We are fingers and paws crossed over here!

  7. You have my paw Bella XXX

  8. It's good to hear from you Bella! That MRI thing doesn't sound too bad. I could sign up for extra treats and attention, but I won't let them forget to feed me my breakfast!

    You ARE being a trooper, Bella, and I'm glad at least your tummy has been feeling better. I'm going to head over to FB and see if there are any more updates!
