Last weekend Mike and I traveled out to DeSoto and found our newest member. Meet Bella, a St. Bernard puppy. Bella will be ready to leave her mama in about 10 days. She is 5 weeks old in these pictures.
Mike used to raise St. Bernard’s more than 30 years ago. Since I have known him, he has always spoken lovingly about his dogs. Now that he is retired and the weather has finally turned warm, it is time to add a dog to the mix.
This will definitely be Mike’s dog. It was so much fun watching him when we drove up to see the puppies. The family has a lovely home and a big yard. We got out of the car and there were little fuzzball dogs toddling around everywhere! Mike was unusually quiet (yes, I said quiet) and watched each puppy. He eliminated them one by one. Finally we got down to just two… a male and a female. I really thought he would pick the male as he was the larger of the two. But, he sat in a lawn chair and held each one for some time… finally choosing the female. Bella. The beautiful.
