A Bully In My Life Again

I have a new niece! Although she has more hair than the others. And walks on all fours. And is a bully… bully breed that is! 🙂 Meet Bella! She is part Pittie and part English Bulldog.

My sister got her about two weeks ago and I am of course, very envious. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my little Benelli!

It’s just nice to have access to a bully breed again! 🙂

Birthday Boy

So Benelli turned one year old on August 30th. However, I didn’t get my disability check until the next day so we waited a day to celebrate. He got a lot of goodies, mostly the food kind. Since it was his birthday, he got a free treat and bandanna from the pet store we visited. I bought him a large treat bone as his “birthday cake.”

His poo was teal for the following two days. Hehe!

After celebrating, I spent some time grieving. The next day, Sept 1st, was the one year anniversary of putting Storm down. I viewed some pics but I couldn’t bring myself to look at the videos I had of her. It was a very bittersweet couple of days for me.

And in case you are wondering, yes, Benelli is still a little shit!

Three in one day, lucky you!

I’m not sure the last time I posted three times in one day, or if it has ever been done by me. Luuuuuuuucky you!! 🙂

I still have been spending an obnoxious amount of time coloring in my free time. I happened to look at some of the books I colored some time ago, and got a warm, and fuzzy feeling seeing that I have improved. My shading has gotten better as well as coloring hair, yet I still struggle with those two areas.

Benelli is doing well and will be turning one at the end of this month. If it’s not too humid and hot out, I try and take him to the dog park to get used to other dogs. Buuuuut, he is a chicken and just drops to the ground to submit. Haha! Maybe one of these days he will surprise me and play with a dog.

He is still very naughty…

But I still love him!

Wonderful Surprise

I can’t remember how I recently found these, but when Storm was young, there was a business doing professional photos for about 15 minutes for 20 bucks. The funds raised was going to be donated to a dog rescue.  I’m so thankful I decided to do it and after years of moving, I can’t find the physical pictures that I paid extra for. 😦 But somehow, I found these somewhere. These are the digital pictures and I have not edited them in any way. Copyright Festive Studios in Sioux Falls, SD.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday

As expected, Benelli has lost some of his puppy looks as he has gotten older…

However, he is still acting like a puppy…

 

 

We are still working on socialization by going to the dog park…

He will do what you want for a treat, even if he doesn’t like the idea…

Wordless Wednesday May 2018

I thought you guys might be wondering how Benelli is doing so decided to post some pics. He is now neutered, destroying my shoes and is doing great. Haha! 🙂

Benelli and his alligator (loves this toy and will fetch it if you ask him where his alligator is)
He wasn’t too happy that I did this.
He also likes rugs
Bittersweet shot: Once again, I have a dog in my window.
He makes me laugh!
