Who could resist this cutie? This lucky girl will always look like an adorable puppy! Bella is a soon to be 6 yr old, female Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever/Poodle mix).
Bella was raised from a pup with her brother Romeo 15-098. They had a loving home, but changes to the family made it impossible to keep the dogs, so they are both RAGOM dogs now.
So far, Bella has been a wonderful houseguest. She seems to take everything in stride, and had an easy transition to our house. We are now her very best friends as is everyone that she meets. She also has been very nice to our very gentle senior resident Golden. Below, the two took a break from exploring in the park while on our walk today for this photo op.
Does Bella like our walks? She loves our walks. Does she walk nicely on the leash? Um...99% of the time that is a yes. She has caught on so quickly since she has been here. I expect her to do lenient heel on my left side while we are on the road, and she is great. When we get to the park, I let her be the leader with a long leash. ....Um....about that 1% of the time.....that would be when the social butterfly part of Bella's personality appears. If we see another person or dog (which is rare in our neighborhood), she sees no point in wasting time to get to them to let the party begin! She is a force! She is strong ! She wants to get to her friends NOW. You might have noticed in the pictures that Bella sports a harness. That is the reason. It helps, but it's not perfect. I am going to progress to using a Gentle Leader on her for better control, for those moments. I will keep you posted on our success with Miss Social Butterfly's use of a Gentle Leader.
Below is Bella's first look at a lake EVER! Will she go in??? More pictures to follow in the next update!
