I haven't posted much about Bella lately, so I thought I'd use this week's WW as an opportunity for an update. For those of you who are new here, Bella is our great dane puppy. We got her in late January and she'll be 5 months old this Saturday.
She weighed around 14 pounds when we brought her home, and at her vet check last week she weighed in at 46 pounds. She's a sweet goofy girl with a lot of spunk. She has a feisty streak and loves to play, but is generally pretty calm unless instigated into play fighting by our oldest, which happens quite often! She happy to be a lap dog though and thinks she's just the right size for the job.
She enjoys sun bathing and lots of time outdoors. She walks pretty well on her leash and is house trained, aside from being a terrible counter surfer (read thief of all things edible). She's quite like a goat in that she'll eat most anything...toys, sticks, pine needles, paper, veggie burgers, you name it. But, at least she doesn't eat socks like our other dane, Max did (Yes, literally ate them. Swallowed whole and digested to later be found in the yard).
She does have some serious separation anxiety issues though, and has recently gotten herself in a bit of trouble around here, eating garbage and getting stuck halfway out an open window. I guess it's a good thing she's so darn cute!
