Let me introduce my dog, Bella and how she rules... Obviously!!!! Haha...
Now I know this image of me has got to be the worst ever but I am trying to recover from a hysterectomy and this is way too funny!
She has me almost off the couch, all 18 lbs of her. Funny how these animals come into our lives and take over. Anyway, it's been good to have her by my side and let me tell ya, by my side while I heal.
We rescued Bella from a great shelter called BARK http://www.barkva.org/ they rescued her from a puppy mill who used her to breed her and take her puppies that you see in pet stores for sale and the such. It is really sad what she was put through the first five years of her life. Dogs and puppies in mills live a very unhealthy life. They live in their own and other animal feces, they don't get proper vet care if at all and most important they get no human contact. No love for these babies, especially the breeders like Bella. So next time you are thinking about getting a puppy or dog, please consider adoption. If you have a specific breed you want you can probably find it on http://www.petfinder.com/ if you are patient. At the very least go to a reputable breeder to find a breed. Ask a vet, check on references and make sure that you see the dogs, especially the breeding dogs.
Anyway, thanks for meeting Bella and reading my blurb about puppy mills. If you would like to learn more, click on the link on my side bar on how to stop puppy mills. There is a ton of info out there.

Oh, where have you been Beth? I know it has been a while since I have done a thing but I do have a pretty good reason. Over the past year I have had some difficulty in the women's health department. I have had to have a couple of surgeries and tried a couple trials of hormone craziness. But, what was best was to have a complete hysterectomy. So, I did about a little over three weeks ago now. Whew, I am glad now that it is done and now I can get on with my life. I just have a few more weeks of recovery to get through. Thanks to all of you who took care of me, loved me, prayed for me, brought me food, flowers, cards, took care of my kids and for just letting me rest and get through this. Thank you God for the angels you have given me!
Now to the good stuff, I have so much new stuff!! You have to go to the website and check it out. I will also be doing a giveaway in the very near future! That will be something pink. I will be announcing soon.
Remember I still have lots of things on SALE! Go see and get some Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
