View Full Version : Meet Bella! (After a fashion!)

6th June 2007, 08:34 PM

Oh what an afternoon! One child off school sick and a dog who absolutley, totally and utterly refuses to "pose" for the camera!

Bella is from Rosie's last litter, Rosie (Rambling Rose) has had in total 5 daughters all of whom have had a name ending in "Rose", should mention my kennel name really, it is Ttenneb which is my surname reversed, I shall let you all work that one out!! So we have had a "Liberty Rose" now in a wonderful pet home, a "Megan Rose" living with her litter brother and also older half brother from Liberty Rose's litter, "Natasha Rose" (Tasha), "Isabella Rose" (Bella) and not forgetting "Crystal Rose" (Crystal) OK?

Bella is in looks spookily similar to her Mum and Sisters as you will see, this is in a way a good visual way of defining "type", which is SO difficult to explain in actual words, but basically my "type" is small, cobby, very pretty girls, with slightly larger heavier males!

This series of pics tells a little story, you will even get to meet the third sister, Crystal! I hope you think as highly of Bella as you have of Tasha!!

OK here we go!!

"There is no way I am going to pose for you today Mam!"


"Oh come on Bella! These people need to meet you darling"

"Listen Mam! I have had a word BUT she is being temperamental here!"

"Absolutely No way am I going to pose for any-one!"

So I had a word with Crystal and all she would say was "Leave me out of this, I am pregnant!"

Eventually, Bella started to Co-operate!

Eventually!! She managed to keep still long enough for me to get this pic to her utter horror!! LOL!!

So there you have it, my very much loved Isabella Rose, her Momma Rosie and her VERY pregnant sister Crystal!! I hope you like them!!

Your dogs are beautiful! Thank you for doing this "diary" of your journey. Just one question...what does "cobby" mean when you said you had small, cobby, very pretty girls? I haven't heard that terminology before!

Hi Holly!
Basically cobby (in my book anyway ;) ) means well boned/of good substance, nothing over or under done, they should not look like they have little "stick" like legs and the bone should be in proportion to the overall body size. Does that help you any? I like them short backed, well boned but with no one part exaggerating any other, they should "flow" from one part to the next. :D

Seen that look before. Teddy wouldn't look at the camera, either.It's the Torylac bit showing through.:D

Oh my--Ms. Nixon-- If you closed the blaze a bit more on your Teddy -- You'd have the twin to my Hunter. Same dark red, same shaped face-- scary

And Ms. Bennet (I've always liked the reverse name) Ttenneb, Ttiweh, Ronnoc-- mine would have been Notsil and I decided a big NO to that. Your girls are lovely and we will all be hoping the tests are clear. I've done 5 MRI's and it was nerve racking. Sandy

Hi Nicki!

It was Josie, we took her and Caitlin out for a meal as the boys were in respite for the night, well she ordered this "fondue" dessert, I tell you now even an adult could not have eaten all that! :yikes: There was this huge bowl of melted chocolate dip along with a bowl of chocolate fudge cake, a bowl of ring doughnuts, a bowl of sliced up banana, a bowl of sliced up strawberries and a bowl of mallow flumps to dip in it!! Even with "jelly belly" Mum and "washboard abs" Dad ;) helping out we couldn't eat it all, this was from the kids menu! :yikes:

Of course they were both running around a lot in the soft play room and outside in the garden as well, so I think you can guess what happened later in the night!! :grnyuk:

But Josie is fine now and I think has learnt that her eyes are (far) bigger than her stomach! :thnku: for asking after her though!!

They are lovely girls. You'd probably like my Holly, Cathryn- 'small', 'cobby' and 'shortbacked' are all apt descriptors. Plus she has a lovely face, but we feel she's maybe too stocky to look in proportion.

Amber has loads of Toraylac (from the Charterwood side) but she's not given me 'that look' yet! :lol:
