This ^. We have a 13 year old lab beagle who is pretty introverted. He is 100% happier since he went deaf. Come to think of it my life got better as my hearing degraded too.Parents have a 12 year old. Great dog has meant a ton to them. Went deaf and we all think she got happier
bella is a good name. sometimes kids can come up with the right name for their pet.Got this pup last August. Wanted to name her Nutella. Unfortunately, we let our little girl name her, and she gave it the wildly unoriginal name of Bella. Here's what she looked like when we first got her, roughly two months old.
The pics below were taken this past winter. Don't think she's grown a lot since then. She's notorious for stealing items from other people's yard (see Sunkist bottle). Apparently two acres isn't enough yard for her to roam. So, we were forced to install an in-ground electric fence to keep her away from the neighbors. She's a good dog, though.
We have a 18 pound Schnoodle now. Picked him up from Richmond animal shelter about 5 years ago. He was full grown and 7 lbs 10 oz when we got him. He was picked up the day before a big snowstorm hit us. No way he would have survived. My once In a lifetime dog Maggie has been gone since 5/25/18. She was also a stray. Black Mouth Cur and the sweetest dog in the world as long as you were human or another dog. She was 55 lbs and all muscle. Saw her go after a raccoon who decided to stand his ground. He lasted about 10 seconds. I swear sometimes she could read my mind. Still not over losing her. Looking now for a Boykin Spaniel rescue. So far every one I’ve found is 1000 to 2000 miles away.
