Title: Bella is growing up!!!
Post by: blynn03 on August 13, 2007, 02:42:47 PM
First of all...HEY EVERYONE!!  Sorry I've been more of a lurker than a poster these last few months, but I've been crazy busy lately!

I just wanted to share that I left Bella alone in the house for a long period of time (all the doors to the side rooms shut) for the first time yesterday.....and she did great!!  Didn't tear anything up, didn't poop, didn't pee....didn't do one single bad thing!!

I'm so proud of my baby!!   :smitten:

Well done Bella.  :thumbsup: Just a word of warning Ellie was exactly the same for the first few days then about 4 days later i came home to find my entire landing carpet pulled back (not chewed or destroyed) but just pulled back - she wanted a comfier bed!

Last night I left her out while I went to play volleyball.  I was gone about 2.5 hours and came back to a house that was exactly the way I left it.....not one thing was out of place!

Kristin:  I actually have a disposable camera that I'm in the process of filling up with pictures of Bella.....when I get it developed, I'll get a CD and post some on here.  I promise!!  (I should just break down and get a digital, but I'm saving for a house and trying to pay off my student loan beforehand, and I just can't justify spending that kind of money right now.  One day!!  Probably by that time I'll have TWO BOXERS!!)

Linz:  Thanks for the word of warning!!

Umm....GOOD CALL!!!!  Tonight I left her while I played volleyball (about 3.5 hours) and I came back to a MESS!!!

She peed, pooped, and pretty much explored every single nook and cranny in my apt. to find something to tear up (box of baby wipes, box of tissues, envelope of papers, Brita pitcher filter, etc etc etc).

Lesson learned: BABY STEPS!
