Oh That Bella Doggie!

Bella decided not to eat at her morning meal this morning and acted as though she didn't feel well. She laid in her favorite spot, in the window sill and as I came in and left the house, she seemed to be normal but still wouldn't eat, even after my offering it a bit later. I ended up throwing it out because I don't like to give old food that's been sitting too long... I washed her bowl so I could try a little later, or perhaps at her afternoon meal, maybe she would eat. Bella is a funny one...she doesn't like to eat her food if her bowl hasn't been washed promptly. Maybe that's because chihuahuas seem to be very sensitive with their smelling. Afternoon feeding was almost here and I just couldn't stand it. I didn't want to put her food out and have her shun it again so I thought I would try something else. I had some small bits of boiled chicken in my fridge and decided to see if she was REALLY sick...haha....low and behold, she SCARFED it down without a moment's thought.  I filled her clean bowl with her dog food and she ate like no tomorrow. No more Bella acting like she couldn't eat. She was giving her toys HECK....trying to make Shorty and Abbey chase her and she was feeling her oats. Aren't chihuahuas funny?

Bella The Barker

As of late, Miss Bella has been using her vocal chords alot....she has discovered that if she barks at something, things happen. She not only has a deep bark for a small puppy, but it's loud as well. She started all this when the other dogs would be looking at something outside and barked at something they saw, Bella barked. Heck, I even noticed times that she would just bark because she heard them start in....even without seeing what it was. Next thing I knew, I would be in the kitchen doing the cooking and there she was, barking at me. I look down at her to see what all the barking was about, and it's just her, wanting attention....or more...she smells the food and wants me to give her a taste..isn't she funny?
