RIP Precious Bell

??/??/2001 - 3/27/2017

At least, I think she was born in that year. We know she was a year and a half roughly when we got her, and that she might have had a litter before she was picked up. She was good with people despite being in a shelter for four months. No one wanted her because it was said she had pitbull blood in her.

Well, we wanted her, and she turned out to be the sweetest pup I've ever known. She was also a Houdini dog, getting free of her backyard lead many times to hop the neighbor's low fence to freedom. (She always came home, but still! How did she unhook her collar?!?) She'd also somehow get under the deck and tie her lead around poles in ways even we had trouble figuring out unless she shrank to the size of a baby bunny (which is what we think she was chasing when she did it. Smart bunnies:1000; silly dog: -1000.)

We'll miss you, pretty girl.
