Another Dog?

January 22, 2012

This is Bella again doing a guest dog blog.  There has been some talk around my house lately that has me a little worried so Mommy said I could express my concerns with her readers.

The talk is about getting another dog.  Now I have lived in this house for more than 2 years and I am the big dog so I am not sure how I feel about another dog invading my space.  I guess there are some positives and there are some negatives so Mommy says whenever you are considering something important it is always important to make a list.


  • I will have a play friend. I can’t wait for that.  It will be so fun to have someone to swim, run and hang out with
  • I will have someone who speaks my language.  I can’t tell you how many times I try to make an important point and all I get in return is a smile
  • I will have someone to blame if I mess up.  If Mommy and Daddy can’t prove who made the mess, they will not automatically blame me
  • I will be able to show the new dog the ropes and how things are done around the house.  Oh, this is a good one!  I can show him how if you whine in the morning you get breakfast quicker and if you keep tapping at the door, you get lots of attention.  If you follow Mommy into her room at night, you get to sleep on the big bed for a little while and if you steal the laundry out of the hamper, you can use it like a pillow.  If you go in your crate when they say “bedtime” you get some extra food.  If you lay on top of the sofa like I saw the cat at my first house do, you can sleep for hours!  If you make a really cute face Mommy can’t resist and gives you people food.  If you go into Daddy’s office, you can get papers out of his garbage can and shred them for him. Gosh,there is so much I can’t wait to share!


  • I am so excited I don’t think there are any negatives.  I heard Mommy say she is worried she has only ever had one dog and doesn’t know how she will love us both, but I know Mommy has enough love in her heart for 50 dogs!  (Hey there’s and idea I should share-50 dogs!)

Looking at my list, I would say that YES I am all for getting a new dog!  I am ready to be a big sister or little sister to whomever might be moving in.  I promise to show the new dog around the house and not share any of my bad habits-just the good ones:-)

Thanks for reading but I have to go.  I have a stick to chew and nap to take!
