OH Dog! Am I ever so excited! I have two special guests who came all the way from Australia to be here today! They also live with one of my biggest fans!
I know you’re on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what they have to say, so without further ado, I introduce Bella and Beary!
Rumpy: Thanks so much for being my guest today! Who do you guys live with?
Bella and Beary: We live with our mumma and our little (non-furry) sister Bubba in Sydney, Australia. Mumma says three kids are enough for her right now, but we think Bubba may come home with a kitty under her sweater one day soon!
Rumpy: I hope for your sake that doesn’t happen! So Bella, what’s your story?
Bella: I am a rescue mutt. Someone dumped my dog mumma and my 3 brothers in a big box on the side of a very busy road. I was only 2 weeks old. One of my brothers has gone to doggy heaven, and my dog mumma and other two brothers were all re-homed. I was quite sick and my leg had an operation and I got so sick that I nearly died. Mumma really loves my leg scar, she says it’s a reminder of my horrible start in life and how far I’ve come.
Rumpy: *sniff sniff*
Bella: Mumma spent a lot of time back then looking on doggie rescue sites and getting very sad that she didn’t have her own puppy. But then she saw my photo. She has a thing for ears. Dog ears that is. And tails. And all other bits as well, but she says it was my soulful eyes and big beautiful ears that did her in.
Rumpy: The eyes have it! And Beary?
Beary: I came to live here with mumma and Bella three and a half years ago. Mumma was looking on rescue sites and other places helping a friend of hers look for a puppy to rescue. I think she may have said “oh no” out loud as soon as she saw my photo. Oh no because she wasn’t really looking for another fur-ever friend, and oh no because she fell in love with me instantly. She says it’s because I looked like a fluffier version of Bella – and look how well that turned out!
Rumpy: Oh Dog! How cool is that!
Beary: Anyway, as much as her love for me was instant, she had Bella and we would have to meet. Mumma’s not too sure where I started life, but my lovely original family (who I’m still Facebook friends with!) got me from a pet store – which mumma shudders every time she thinks about – had to go back to live in England urgently so my sister (a very nice cat named Wolfie) and I needed new homes.
Rumpy: How sad!
Beary: Wolfie found a home quite easily, but no-one seemed to want a beautiful looking (if I do say so myself – but you can say so too, just look at our photos) 6 month old Alaskan Malamute x Golden Retriever. Mumma came to spend time with me a few times before she finally caved in and decided I could live at her house. That was three and a half years ago. I think she knew that she was always going to be my fur-ever mumma, but just in case Bella didn’t want a silly little brother, she probably had to say that!
Beary: I have a lovely family and I am a very lucky dog. I wish all dogs who needed to find fur-ever homes could find one as lovely as mine. And have a beautiful big sister like Bella. And a lovely little sister like Bubba.
Rumpy: You are two very lucky dogs indeed! Now one last question: If you was a dinosaur, what kind would you be?
Bella and Beary: We had a chat to our aunty about this, because she has always loved dinosaurs. Bubba looks a lot like our aunty did when she was a bubba. She lives with our uncle and our fuzzy cousin, Barker the labradoodle. Barker lived with them in Chicago and New York before he came home to live in Sydney. Anyway, our aunty said that was so strange that we should ask this exact question because she and Barker had been talking about it the day before! She thinks all three of us would be Brontosaurus – because they are the loveliest, friendliest dinosaurs!
Rumpy: That is awesome! I wanna be a cookiesaurus!
Thanks so much for being my guests today guys!
