Meet Bella

We had decided way back in January that we were ready to get a puppy.  We knew we were going to have to wait until at least after may, because we were going to make a trip to Iowa to go to Awesome guy's cousin's wedding and visit family.  There would be no place for a dog to go for 4 days so we waited.  Well may came and went and we still hadn't decided what kind of dog or anything.  Well we went to Michelle's house for the 4th of July and she had puppies for sell and we were thinking about getting one of her puppies.  Well Awesome guy decided to keep looking because he really wanted a big lazy dog.  He really like Blood hounds or Coonhound dogs. He looked and there was a breeder in Missouri for Bloodhounds and a breeder in Oklahoma for Coonhound.  So Awesome guy being the way awesome guy is decided to research to two and found out which would be the best breed for our family.  According to the research they both have ear problems because of how large their ears, you have to make sure they stay clean and that bloodhounds have more problems with their skin because it is really loose and they get dirt in the rolls.  Well we choose a coonhound puppy.  We got ahold of the breed and made a deposit and we decided that we would go get her in tulsa on the 16th of August. We let Big Boy pick out from the photos which on he wanted.  He picked a girl,  whose original name was Amy.  Awesome guy decided he liked the name Bella and Big boy liked it too.. I of course loved it because I'm obsessed with Twilight.  So I didn't my to-cents in, but we stuck with Bella!!!:)  So finally on the 16th, we drove down to Tulsa to meet up with the breeder and pick up our new puppy. 

We stayed in Tulsa for an hour or so big boy and bella could stretch and get to know each other before our 2 and a half hour drive home. She did so good on the way home she literally slept the whole way home,  we took her to the vet when we got home and he said she was very healthy!!  We have had her for a couple of weeks now and she is pretty much house broke and is doing great.  We are loving every minute of having her. She is going to be huge though but that's okay!
