Bella the Escape Artist

I’m just not an animal person. My favorite animal is a lightning bug. They are fun to watch and never invade your personal space.

But this beautiful girl of mine has pined for a dog for years. Her first word at 9 months was "dog". For her 9th birthday, we decided it was time.

Bella is a lab mix from a local rescue.

Joey added a doggie door to the sunroom. We built a nice little fence.

She waited until we were off at work to jump said fence and run around our neighborhood. The next day we locked the doggie door while we went back to buy even more lumber to modify our fence. She escaped again.

And she refuses to eat dry dog food and she needs a night-light and she is so adored by our family. We now have a six-foot fence and she’s only escaped through the house and garage twice.

Ava says her middle name is Houdini. Bella Houdini Thompson has a nice ring.
