Happy Birthday Stinky!


Two posts in one day?!? what is wrong with me? I hope you are having a great Friday. I just wanted to mention a couple of things I left out of my last post.

The first of which being Bobby and I ran again last night, 3 more hilly miles, followed by some coconut water drinking. I look sweaty because well…it was really hot and humid, and the sun wasn’t even out!


Second thing, today is my LAST DAY of 6 weeks to 6 pack and well…I don’t have a 6 pack. Not even close. More on that next week so stay tuned for all the deets….

third thing is, my Bella Stink turns THREE today! In case you are lost and wondering why I call my precious furball stinky, here it is: She is bad. I mean into everything, nonstop craziness bad. She gets into everything and anything and is so spunky. We started calling her a little stinker because she is so bad, and ten it evolved to calling her stinky and stink. I know, I know, it’s weird, but it fits her, trust me! (I have even been known to throw in a “stinker bell” or “bellzers” or embarrassing things like that)

Anyway, she is 3 now, but still acts like a crazy 6 week old puppy. I thought you may enjoy some of my favorite pictures of the stink. We got stinky at 5 weeks old.

Here she is the day we brought her home:


everyone say “aaawwwwww”


she was like a cotton ball with arms and legs


slightly bigger than a coke can

By June she had gotten a little bit bigger


and July


but she still looked tiny when she was wet


but eventually we had to start getting her groomed


Stinky loves people food


and is VERY MUCH a lap dog


She loves looking out the window


and likes Disney like her mama


Last winter we discovered her love for snow


as in, stick your face in it and run like you are going under a blanket


and, watch out if you are taking warm towels out of the dryer. She will be on top of them in a heartbeat


but apparently does NOT like hats


I have loved every minute of the three years we have had her (well…except when she pees on my carpet or digs in the trashcan…but anyway….) She is so much fun to have around and I always have a fun story to share about her! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELLA!
