Bella is the best dog in the whole world. Seriously. I love Molly, but Molly has her issues. She is a great dog, too, but Bella is just the perfect dog. Her only issue is that she stares at you when you are eating, which drives Jason nuts. She never jumps on you, she never bites, she has always been super calm. She loves laying by you but doesn't beg for your attention. She lets you love on her anytime you want. She never, ever has accidents in the house. She is smart. She is a wonderful, wonderful dog.
Neither Avery or Bella are really all that interested in each other just yet. I don't think Avery realizes that she can really play with her. I don't think Bella really cares one way or the other. She loves me more than anyone, everyone else is kind of an afterthought. But lately, since Avery has been crawling around, Bella is sometimes in her path. Bella will sometimes move, but most of the time, she'll just lay there. Yesterday morning, Avery was just crawling all over her and Bella just stayed there and let her. Molly won't really lie there and let her crawl on her. Now, Molly is great with the big kids. The big kids will just lay on top of her and she just lays there. Bella won't really do that. She doesn't like to be pinned down. But Molly is a great dog to lay on.
I love having dogs. Especially ones that are so good with kids.
