Bella's bone

But first: We hate this computer! It has dementia. It is out of memory. It forgets what commands have been given. It won't go to certain blogs. It freezes......the list goes on. There, that feels better. Anyway, in a couple of weeks some guy named Tax Refund is coming to give us a new computer. Hope it's soon. This one will be history. It'll go to the e-waste depot. Hopefully, it won't end up with some, unsuspecting, poor people in the third world. They have enough problems. Okay, got that off my chest.
On our walk yesterday at the Sports Ground, Bella found a lamb leg bone. Don't know what it would be doing on a sports field. Bella always finds something on our walks....usually something pretty disgusting. We think Bella could be a Rescue Dog. If anyone was buried holding a sandwich, she'd find them quickly. They'd have to be cuddling a cat for me to find them. Come to think of it, I'd probably just end up saving cats instead of people. Needs some rethinking, this.
Anyway, Bella found this great bone. But she could only carry it around, because everytime she tried to gnaw on it, one of us came up close and she'd run off.

When she tired and it was time to go, it was taken from her when she had her leash put on.
She wasn't too happy about that.


  1. A lamb bone. How fantastic1 I had my first one ever on my trip down to Nottingham earlier this month, and it kept me happy all week!
    Oh and Gail says how lucky you are to know a guy called Tax Refund. She says she only knows Tax Bill!
    Toodle pip!

  2. Hi Bella,

    You know, the more Max hears about you the more he feels that you and he are both halves of a whole! We think he's got a little crush! You see, HE found a ham bone at our local leisure centre field last year and HE wouldn't share it either. When FH took it off him he was MOST displeased with her.

    Max manages to find loads of treasure, just like Bella! On this morning's walk he was beside himself to find half a child's bucket on the beach - you'd think he'd unearthed the crown jewels from the excitement!

    Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  3. I thought it was supposed to be finders keepers?!

  4. I, too, am sad when I get leashed up. Especially after a frenzied dig at the critter living behind a fence in a nearby alley. At least you had a lamb bone! All I got was scents and stuff. Chew the next one for me! Roooooo, Stuart

  5. Poor Bella, she has this great find and then it is taken from her!! Poor baby!!
    Your computer needs cleaning up. Tom cleans mine every Sunday. Every once in a while he deletes things that are full, like favorites list. Deletes some of the blogs that never comes to see you. Deletes some of my blog that I posted a long time a go!!! ECT
    Try getting rid of some things that are not that important to you. See how that works!!
    XXOO, Fern

  6. We've never had a lamb bone before! How unfair that Bella couldn't keep it and take it home with her! Heck, she found it!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. I think our 'puter will makes it out da window befores it makes to da e-waste depot.
    So, bout dis lamb bone....why da heck was it theres to begin withs? Oooooh, maybes it really is a prehistoric dinasour bone that Bella found. Oh wait, now her contaminated a valuable treasure. Oh well, finders keepers...hehehehe!


  8. Don't you just HATE it when the humans take our treasures that we've worked so hard to find? Really doesn't seem very fair at all.

    Oh, and I laughed and laughed abouts Bella being the sandwich rescue dog!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  9. first-ish, i like the sound of this mr. tax refund dude. i wonder if he could bring my mama a new compy after he stops at your house?
    second-ish, miss bella, way to find the epic loots! that bone is super awesome. it stinks that your mama took it away from you, but maybe it's cuz ya'll are getting lamb shanks for supper??
    the booker man

  10. We could use a new puter at our house too. Do you think maybe mr tax refund dude might have an extra one for our dad???
    Bella, what an awesome bone. Too bad you couldn't convince them into letting you keep it. A treasure....

  11. Oh, we hear your computer woes....We are shopping too. No tax refund man for us :(

    How come everything blows up at the same time...the Microwave, the Camera, the Computer, the car tires! hehe


  12. I got such a laugh over the sandwich comment
