Bella, my toy Aussie

Many of you know that my toy Aussie’s puppy pic is my avatar. Bella is like a therapy dog to me, especially since I now work from home. Here is a “grown up” pic of Miss Bella. (She only has one “good” eye, but I think she’s beautiful!)


oh she is so cute I bet you spoil her but who could resist that wee face hope you are well.

She is absolutely gorgeous!! I certainly understand our love for our fur babies who are members of the family!!! I was devastated when I lost my Anny after 16 1/2 years. Molly is wonderful but she barks all the time. I don’t know if that is the breed or because she came from a shelter. But either way, I love her just as much!! Thank you for sharing!!!

She’s adorable! I love aussies! We lost our Taz, a pomeranian who lived up to his name, several years ago. I was actually looking for an aussie, but none were available. We ended up getting Sadie, a cavachon. She’s half king charles cavalier and half bichon. She’s been the sweetest lap dog we’ve ever had!
I love Bella’s markings and that sweet smile on her face!

Thank you, ladies! And thanks for sharing your fur baby stories! :blush:
Bella tells me when it is time to stop working and take a break and when it is time to play. She will drop a toy in front of me and push at me with her nose (She thinks I need encouragement, and, sometimes, to be herded - LOL). It is amazing how even the little Aussies have that herding instinct.

I just love that picture! My little 6 pound chihuahua is sitting on my lap right now. His name is Max. I adopted him one year ago. The shelter did not have any information about him. They think he is 8 yrs old. His is nearly deaf and my vet thinks he may have been hit by a car at some point because his right back leg is almost flaccid and his left back leg doesn’t move like it should. He is so precious and super funny! I feel like we were meant to be with each other. We both walk funny and we both are funny!!:joy::rofl::woman_facepalming: Chihuahuas can live to be 20 yrs old. Oh, and Max loves everyone! I wish I was techy enough to send a picture of him.

“I wish I was techy enough to send a picture of him.”
Ohh there’s nothing too much techy about sending a pic, especially if you have a copy of the pic on your computer.

Freedom, your pup sounds adorable!!! I had a 6 lb yorkie in the past, and they are so fun to carry around and cuddle at that size! :blush:

Merl, I love your baby!!! SO CUTE!!! Don’t they go crazy for tummy rubs?! :upside_down_face:

Zananne1, what a precious & beautiful pup!!! And, I love her name. She looks like she’s saying, “Let’s go play!” These Aussies have energy to spare - That’s for sure! :grinning:

2Blessed, can you share a pic of Sadie? I bet she’s gorgeous! :blush: What would we do without our fur babies?!

GramyB, can you share pic of Molly? I’ve heard such great things about her, in your posts. I think she keeps you moving, just like Bella does me!!! :blush:

She is so beautiful! We had a red-tri Aussie and he was one of the best dogs we ever had. He was so smart and I swear he understood everything we said and he definitely had a lot of love to give us!. He’s been gone (rainbow bridge) for 5 years now, but we still talk about him a lot! Anyway, enjoy Bella, she looks like such a sweet dog!

And she’s got an evil eye! How special.

I call it her crazy eye! Lol!

Hi, Karen6!
Red Aussies are gorgeous - I can tell you still miss him. The Rainbow Bridge poem makes me cry. It is beautiful!
Isn’t it amazing how smart and intuitive our pets can be? Bella is our first Aussie, and definitely has more energy than any pet I’ve ever owned. That was hard to get used to at first - LOL! I would ask my husband - What were you thinking??? We will never keep up with her! But, she finds delight in every toy you throw up in the air, and sometimes will even jump up and catch them in her paws - She would make an excellent soccer goalie! (The ball would just have to be super light & fit in your palm -ha!) :upside_down_face:

She’ll probably be good at playing frisbee like ours was. That was his favorite game of all and his challenge was to get there and catch it before it landed! You are going to have a lot of fun times with your Bella!
