Bella has been adopted

She leaves for her trek across Wisconsin to her new home in Kenosha in about an hour. Terry is coming to pick her up and take her as far as Eau Claire, then another person will take her to Wisconsin Dells where she will meet her new mom. I can’t say enough about how our transport coordinator puts these together, and people step up to do the driving. MWCR is such an incredible rescue, full of so many people who help in so many ways.

I was remiss in checking her vet records and when I did I realized she is actually not up to date on her shots, which as her foster mom, I should have had taken care of, but we will work something out with her new mom. I wouldn’t have been able to get her over to the vet, anyway, with my car not being able to make more than a trip to work and back until I get it fixed.

I will miss Miss B. She’s been such a good dog.


Settling in and learning new ways

Bella1Bella is relaxing more and more. She’s learning the routine and has learned how to navigate the tie-out. The first time I put her out with it, she just stood there looking at me. Now she goes out and does her business right away.  She would prefer to stay outside, but I don’t leave any of my dogs out on the tie-out for long periods of time.

Rodgers keeps at her trying to get her to play. The first time she barked at him in a ‘leave me alone’ kind of way. He keeps trying and she’s now shown some interest. I think he will succeed at some point. She was an only dog in her former home, so is not used to being pestered by another dog.

She has started to whine at the cats. As if she would chase them if they ran, They don’t and she can’t figure that out!

She’s on the website as available.


e3ec3-bella1Bella’s family is making a big move to a different state where they won’t have a fenced yard and will probably be living in an apartment for a bit, so after careful consideration, they have returned her to MWCR and I get to foster her again! See this post where I had her for a week or so a while ago, and here for some early pictures, She looks like a tri-color now. A different kind of color on her back, all black with a brown undercoat, and brown legs.

BellaShe is such a sweet dog, well-trained. Gets along with other dogs and leaves the cats alone.  She really hates the flash, so keeps moving as I take a picture. Will need to get more pictures during the day when I don’t need a flash.
