Uh oh, Bella!

 This morning was beautiful.  SHE decided to do a bit of weeding....there's grass growing everywhere except where it's supposed to grow.  SHE was surprised to find a buried stuffie and assumed it was the missing koala.  On closer inspection....
 It proved to be a small, collectible teddy bear purchased in Hamleys Toy Shop in London for a fairly hefty price!  We don't know when Bella buried it; but it wasn't too dirty.

Further weeding uncovered Blue Bug who's been missing for months..
 And finally, poor koala missing for about the same length of time.

 Both stuffies have been through several heavy rains and frosts.
Bella would not even look at the camera.


  1. Bella was just aging them to give them a really yummy flavor ;)

  2. Oh Bella, you and Bailey could have so much fun together, hiding toys and pretending not to understand what we're talking about.

  3. Bella - naughty muffin!! (That's what my mum would say!) I keep taking some of my stuffie's outside but I don't bury em' - I just do it to provide my mum extra exercise in going out and collecting em'......BOL

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  4. Bella, don't were just trying to keep them safe by burying them!!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  5. It looks like one of Freddy's gang...

    If you find any other suspicious creatures in your area let us know immediately! Be careful!


  6. It's like going through a treasure hunt in your backyard.

  7. Never a dull moment with Bella .

  8. LOL, that was funny.... Did you know that I a West Highland terrier newer even try to dig?! Do you think something is wrong with me?

  9. You just never know what you'll discover when you finally get around to weeding! We know you're sorry, Bella!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. Gail recently read an article in a science magazine which claimed that dogs do not feel guilt. I don't think Bella can have read it!
    Toodle pip!

  11. Oh, your toys look so sad!

  12. Just look at all those treasures buried in your backyard!!! Awesome!

  13. Looks like SHE had a very productive day in the garden. Tell HER to do like the Momster just did and toss those stuffies in the washer - amazing how well they come out except they don't quite smell the way we like them.

    Happy Sunday.

  16. miss bella,

  17. We are laughing and barking over here! The toy box is empty.....where did they all go, STANZIE?
    She started this behavior as a tiny little puppy. Trying to shove the toys under the furniture and always slinking around So guilty while doing it. Did Bella begin her burying behavior early on?

  18. Caught and guilty.. hahaha..
    that sure is a lot of buried treasures.

  19. Dat is a good idea. You have given me an idea to hide my "babies" from my sister Hannah. Thanks!

  20. Oh dear. Bella, you MUST work on that "look" after you've had your fun. Be cheerful! Look up at HER with a big 'ole smile as if to say, "who? me?"

    Arroo, Stuart

  21. Oh my Bella, what a hard worker you are!
