my neighbors have a pug named bella. my dog is named matsi, which is blackfoot for "sweet and brave." pet naming is one of the areas where you can be creative without ruining someone's future, so i don't waste time giving dogs normal dog names or normal people names. what's the point?

I just joined "Club Bella".

http://www.city-data.com/forum/membe...348-bella.html

Bella is a 9+ year old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix.

I wasn't really ready for another canine member of the family after losing my Thyla only a month ago, but we met Bella and just had to take her in.

Her family lost their home due to foreclosure (job loss) and were not able to keep her. Breaks my heart.
(Do I think there is a special place in hell for landlords who say "no pets allowed" in that situation? Yes, yes I do. )

She seems to be adapting nicely. My goal is to give her the BEST golden years ever.

My Bella's boyfriend is a Border Collie mix. Sweet boy. I hope you enjoy your Bella. Glad you took her in. Post pictures!!

If you click on the link in my post, that's her!

I'll try to get some shots of her face over the Holidays. She has the sweetest eyes. I promised the staff at the Humane Society that I would send them pics as well. They really have a soft spot for her.

Need to charge up the camera battery.....

So to all who own a Bella, do you have nicknames for her? I'm wondering how many of the same nicknames we call our Bellas lol
