Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous bank holiday weekend!
So todays post is going to be a little different to all the beauty and fashion posts i've been doing lately. I decided to break away into the 'Lifestyle' part of my blog and introduce to you my Yorkshire Terrier Bella and all the fun stuff we get up to and will be getting up to now the summer is finally here.
This is my little Bella :) well, i say little but she's not so little anymore as she just turned 6! She's got the cheekiest personality and is such a diva it is unreal haha. She enjoys dressing up, posing for the camera and long naps in the sunshine. Bella lovesss her food and has been put on diet by the vets around 3 times now, she yo yo diets all the time ;) Unfortunately she had a little accident last year and she had to have a pretty serious operation on her back leg which left her with a metal plate with 6 screws. Now, Bella is only a little thing and after this little accident we had to get her back into a routine to make sure she was getting all the physical and metal activities she needed to walk again. A year on and she has recovered amazingly and she's back to her old self again, so i thought i'd show you guys some of the stuff we get up to.
Daily exercise is an essential component for dogs to ensure they keep healthy and mentally and physically stimulated. Bella is only a little thing but since her operation she needs to be out walking 1 - 2 times a day to keep her leg strong. Since the weather has been much nicer and now i'm near enough finished for the summer we enjoy walking Bella up to the local Marina where we can feed the ducks! :D Last year when we went we saw some baby swans grow up and they are still there now. I doubt they remember us but when they were babies you could feed them directly from your hand, was so cute! Not only are walks great for your dog but for you also, i know by doing all this walking i am getting fresh air and exercise everyday.
Bella used to go to agility and obedience classes and she done pretty well and enjoyed them. She can't do super amazing tricks but she tries bless her. She can sit, lay down and stay but a trick i can kind of do with her is the one where you rest a treat on a dogs nose and you tell them to wait for a while and then have it and they flick it up in the air and catch it in their mouth, i think it's amazing haha. Bella is also learning how to do 'paw' but she hasn't quite understood the concept as yet as she tends to just lay down when you ask her haha.
Playing with Toys
We are always out in the garden, especially at the weekends and Bella and our cat Cookie love playing around together in the sunshine. Whilst i'm catching a few rays Bella will come over until i give her attention and then we end up running around the garden usually throwing her toys around for her to chase haha. Bella must have over 50 toys, no joke, she loves all types especially if they have a squeak inside, she things she has to play with it until it stops squeaking, odd i know but thats Bella for you.
Bella has got a passport and we have traveled to a few places with her and this is something we always consider now when we go away as we would love to bring her along with us. We would absolutely love to bring Bella to LA in September but we personally feel the flight might be a little too long and traumatic for her and she is getting older now.
It's not the healthiest thing to do but we do love lazy days and Bella loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa and watching television with us, yup thats right television! She seriously sits down and watches everything that is going on.
Bella loves going round to my cousins house and playing with their Yorkshire Terrier Rolo. We joke around and call them girlfriend and boyfriend, they have such a cute relationships! It's like Bellas second home when we go round there :D
The activities you can do with your pet are endless, these are just a few of the ones we like to do :D A super helpful website is the 'Pet Health Info' which we have found tones of helpful information on.
Hope you enjoyed this post! It's a little different but i was in the mood to write something a little different and seeing Bella running around in the sunshine in the garden the last few days really inspired me to write up a post about her haha. I'd love to know your thoughts and anything you and your pet do for fun :D
Lots Of Love
