Bella's been on a bit of a summer vacation from blogging, but she's back now! We're coming up on our one year Bella-versary, the anniversary of the day we brought her home! So what's she been up to this summer?
Well, to start, she got her first summer haircut. She's spoiled by our air conditioner and HATES the heat. We take her out a lot to family functions or pretty much anywhere we can get away with having her and she does not tolerate the heat very long, even with the air conditioning on in the truck. So we'll probably be keeping her in the lion cut from May on into the summer months. She's about halfway grown out now so I may consider pushing her haircut back to June so it lasts longer in the heat for her or I may have them give her a closer clip. I didn't take her as short as the Persian that I used to have, but her issue was more about the heat and less about matting so I didn't think it was that big of a deal to not go the peach-fuzz route, but it wasn't really an issue. Here she is, rocking her new short coat:
So now that she has this short 'do, she can really get to get her paws dirty with some summer adventures! Jim and I have been doing a lot of fishing this year and we bring our catch home to clean and fillet. One day, we decided to let Bella see what we've been doing this whole time while she's stuck at home. She was very curious about the fishes we caught, but she didn't really want to eat them as much as she wanted to swat at the ones who were still moving around. We tried to offer her some fresh fish, but apparently she turns her nose up at anything that doesn't come in a can.
