The World According to Bella | "Woodland Snow Treasures"

Yesterday I found my third snow treasure of the season. First came my big victory catching a squirrel followed by finding a deer leg bone. Much of my walk time is spent investigating, sniffing and digging near the road and into the woods. But a recent discovery, a deer skull may be my biggest snow treasure find ever.

I did have to wrestle this monstrous piece a bit as it was frozen to the ground. And then I wasn't sure how to hold something so large in my mouth. When my jaw finally clenched the skull I was not about to give it up to Mrs. S no matter how many times I heard "Bella, Drop it! Drop it!"

But when Mrs. S's friend who was walking with us offered me not one but two milk bones I had a weak moment. I did not fight her too hard for the skull. Besides my jaw was beginning to hurt from carrying it so long. In the end Mrs. S carried it home to show Mr. C who was most impressed with my find.

It's been cold lately. I'm lucky to have grown a nice thick fur coat to keep me warm for these kinds of days. But today I received some unexpected news. I won't need a thick fur coat after all. I'm going on a road trip and heading out west to AZ in just eight more days. I know its warmer than Minnesota as I was in Tucson last year.

At first with the news I was a bit worried about Christmas and I'd miss Santa. But Mrs. S assured me he'd find me on his Minnesota stop. I keep checking on my stocking that has been hung but so far nothing.

I've been working hard at being good. I requested only TWO gifts on my list this year. If you remember they were same TWO items from last year, a camouflage backpack and an orthopedic foam memory bed just like the ones Sadie has.

I've been a big help to Mrs. S lately with her holiday baking keeping the floor clean of crumbs. She doesn't even need to sweep afterwards. And I've kept Mr. C company through all those boring football games he watches all the time. But sometimes I shut my eyes when I know it's the last couple seconds of the game in case his favorite team loses and he yells. And Mr. C and Mrs. S always tell me what a good car rider I am.

Mrs. S has been busy packing. She even remembered to pack my favorite Texas outfit, a pink cowgirl hat and bandanna. So now I know it's all true.

Love, Bella

P.S. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
