Previously we've shared their beautiful pooches Moo Latte and Dakota. Today's story, however, is all about Isabella.
This did not appeal to her in any way, as she could sense the relationship was soon to end and wanted no part of any surprise, especially one from him. However she agreed/relented and the next thing she knew they were pulling into the parking lot at the Salt Lake City Humane Society.
Gina immediately dug in her heels, knowing the last thing their doomed relationship needed was another soul to be involved. However her boyfriend was as obstinate as she was, and she knew he wouldn't give up until she at least went in and looked around. She was determined to leave there without a dog, and she did, but it wasn't because of her reluctance.
You see Bella's eyes. Gina was probably a goner immediately.
Bella seemed to recognize her and ran to the window. Telling herself it was a coincidence, she decided to hang back and watch how Bella interacted with everyone else. Guess what? It wasn't a coincidence. Bella had set her sights on Gina.
Gina was prepared to throw down and trade fisticuffs with any potential adopters until she saw the people had a little girl who threw her arms around Bella and said "My puppy!" Uh..... so much for challenging them to a fight. BOL. (Bark out loud!)
Well, about a week after they met Bella, Gina's boyfriend got a phone call that the family had returned Bella because she was "too hyper and too big."
Gina says that in that one week Bella had a big gash on her forehead and lost a lot of weight.
We all hate to think about Bella with the wrong family, but as Gina says, maybe Bella was acting up just so they would return her, and then she could fulfill her Doggie Destiny with Gina!
The two just celebrated their four year Adopt-aversary. They had a party with yummy looking cupcakes!
