Well, sure enough, the week before the birthday party, we get a call saying that Bella has indeed had puppies. Nine of them! But only five lived. So when Lawren made the trip this past weekend to Matt and Shelbea’s, she was anxious to see Bella’s pups. Now, Bella had dug a deep hole in the barn and the pups were way back in the hole, so when Eli took Lawren out to see them, she couldn’t get a peek at them. But lo and behold! Here comes Bella who crawls into the hole and scootches (is that a word?) way back in the hole and pushes the puppies out to the front of the hole so Lawren can see them. She looks up at Lawren like, “See what I did? Didn’t I do good?” Lawren said she had tears in her eyes because she was so happy. Don’t let anyone tell you that animals cannot communicate. A picture is worth a thousand words!
