Look who's fifteen......

Happy Birthday to my little beauty, Belle!
The pup and I have celebrated tonight with a birthday bath, which she does not consider a celebration, but wretched torture as seen here.  I did, however, give her the bath in the shower this time with warm water...that was a little luxury for her.  I have also given her extra treats and lots of cuddles.  She even let me put a little birthday hat on her while she ate her treats.  
(And check out that wood floor she is sitting on.  We are almost done putting it throughout our whole house!)

She might be 105 in dog years, but she is still truckin' (as Grandma Billie would say). She is trying to beat the world record for the longest living dog.  She has a shot.  The Guinness Book of World Records longest living dog was a beagle.  Guess how old he was....

In honor of Belle, I thought it would be fun to share some of the names that we have come up with for her over the years.  Belle is a fun name to work with.

1) Bellerina
2) Beller Butt
3) Bellzebub
4) Bellerus
6) Beller Babe
8) Beller Booty

....and whatever else we come up with spur of the moment.  And, whenever you say "No Belle" it sounds like Nobel.  She is our little peace prize. 
I love you Belle!

  2. Get this stupid hat off of me. Geez, the things I do for stupid people tricks.
