Ciao Bella

Dexter had a big day today, because he got to meet his cousin Bella. She belongs to Daddy's brother's family. Her mommy is Jen, her daddy is Jon, and she has a human brother named Alex.

Dex has been around a few other doggies already, and has done well. But Bella is just two days younger than Dex, so she has the same puppy energy as him. Unfortunately, she is almost twice his weight and her legs are much longer than his, so she gets to overpower him for the most part, but he did a pretty good job of holding his own.

Bella is an adorable black pug, named after the Bella in Twilight. She was incredibly well behaved today, and was very social. She sat on the couch with me for almost 45 minutes, just relaxing. However, this sparked some jealousy from Dexter, so the puppies decided it was play time. They romped around on the floor, and when Bella would get to be too much for Dexter, he would just hide under the couch.

After a couple of hours of playing, Dexter was tuckered out and ready to come home. He fell asleep on the couch with me and Hubby, so we just put him to bed. Tomorrow, it is a trip to Ohio to see Mommy's family. Grandma and Pappy have a dog too, though last time she was scared of Dexter. Hopefully tomorrow they will play, so I can post pictures of them too.

In the mean time, enjoy the pictures of Dexter and Bella...
