The World According to Bella | "Mid-Summer Recap"

How is your summer going? Mine is going really well now that I have a better handle on my OCD behavior. For six weeks after my surgery Mr. C and I battled over my leg being wrapped. He thought way too much leg licking was going on. He’d wrap it, I’d chew it off, he’d wrap it and I’d chew it off and so it would go on and on. My leg itched bad. I couldn’t help myself. Even icky lick guard did not slow my licking down. I’ve been told I have chewed through at least a dozen leg wraps tape and all. Now that’s an impressive total.

One day I was home alone and wearing that dreaded cone. I was resourceful and managed to crawl under a chair reverse my direction and wiggle out of the cone just to reach my wrapped leg. It didn’t take long for me to chew off that wrap. When I heard Mr. C announce “I give up!” I knew I had won. From that day on my life took a turn for the better. I really was getting tired of hearing, “Bella, stop!”

I love a parade especially one on the 4th of July. I had my usual spot up front to watch all kinds of boats set sail. We counted 31. As we passed by many people on their docks I gave them all my best paw wave. Mrs. S kept us busy all afternoon and well into the evening with games, lots of treats, a campfire, s’mores and then there were the noisy fireworks. It was at that point I begged to go inside. I do not like scary noises besides I really needed a nap.

The last few weeks have been warm. I like to cool off with a swim around the dock or stay inside. I do like my AC and when Mrs. S isn’t too busy she’ll read some from my new books “Outwitting Squirrels-101 Cunning Stratagems” and “The Secret Life of Squirrels”. I need help. Now I have competition. A teenage boy down the road has recently started squirrel hunting. He caught four and I have caught only one. Chipmunk hunting is going even worse. I’m not fast enough. They are too quick scampering up a tree.

Yesterday Mrs. S bought me a huge bone from the meat market. I worked on this bone for well over an hour and my jaws were tired from all that gnawing. Later when my new cousin Luna came to visit, Sadie’s sister, I ran off with my bone and buried it in a safe spot. I was not about to share with a new puppy who likes to chew on everything. Now I just have to remember where I put it.

Love, Bella
