This is Bella


Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.

Good Morning! This is Bella. I am writing this blog post this morning because my mommy can't figure out what to write. She is struggling, so I decided to help her. I am going to write about our weekend. We had a wonderful weekend, but some weird things were happening!

Saturday was perfect. We took a long walk. I sniffed lots of good smells and enjoyed myself.

When we came home, Mommy and I played with my toys and then we cuddled together for a little while. I settled down to rest and all of the sudden there was all of this commotion. Mommy was taking things off of the shelves. All the things were coming off of the shelves. 
She was surrounded. I couldn't get to her. I paced back and forth while she moved things around. Some of the things on the shelves went into bags and into the garage and other things just went back onto the shelves. Finally, she was done!
Suddenly, it was happening again. This time, she was taking everything out of the closet. 
How big is that closet?!?! Things just kept coming out. 
Finally she moved things around, lots of it went into bags and into the garage and the rest returned to the closet. 
I didn't like this at all! There's too much craziness!!! Why is she doing this? When will it be over? Ahhhh, I thought, we are done. 

We walked upstairs to my bedroom. It's my favorite room in the house! My crate is in there and Mommy's bed too! As I was deciding if I should go into my bed or rest on her's, once again clothes started flying around. 
What is happening?!?! I started worrying. Is she leaving?!?! She moves clothes around like this before she leaves me. I couldn't stop pacing...I started panting. I wanted to yell, "MOMMY, STOP!" but I don't talk. I watched her carefully...every moment. It lasted all day. She even started again on Sunday. 

Finally, Monday we are done. No bags. No stuff. No chaos. Just rest. Me and my mommy. Together. I guess overall it was a good weekend.

  1. You are such a smart dog, Bella! I'm glad you could help your mom out this weekend with all of her cleaning duties. Us humans have this need to be organized. It helps us feel happy! :)

  2. Ah Bella, There is something about Labor Day that causes us humans to catch a flu bug called clean out and make room for the next season.

  3. I often wonder what my pets are thinking when they watch me. They seem so wise. Boy, did you have the cleaning out bug! You must feel so organized. The end makes me happy, but I often avoid the process.

  4. Oh, sweet Bella! You probably thought you were being uprooted to the kennel. You poor thing! Don't worry. Now that school's back in session, I have a feeling your mommy will be around for awhile!

  6. I know Bella is relieved, and you must be so excited to have done all that, Michelle. Love the look of the shelves, and "How big is that closet?!?!" Made me laugh! Have a great week!

  7. I smiled throughout this post! I do think we can upset our animals with our crazy human ways. Glad things are settled and (although Bella sees little value in it) organized!

  8. Bella, it sounds like your mommy read the life-changing magic of tidying up this summer. I'm glad she was done in two days. Lots of work for her & worry for you. Glad Monday was a peaceful day. She'll be happier with things organized. It brings a certain calm to humans to purge. Glad she stayed away from your stuff.

  10. Sweet! Bella seems sympathetic to your chores, if somewhat puzzled by all the activity. What a collection of shoes!

  11. OMG, Bella, this is a great description of the terror your Momma made in your house this weekend....It seems like you were a "good" helper. I'm sure you are glad she is back in school so you can rest.

  12. Awww...poor Bella!!! I'm glad she got in a little cuddle time in the midst of all that reorganization. I always feel mystified by the sheer amount of stuff we own; but it feels good to clear it out every now and then.

  14. Ahh, yes, the deep clean of closets and clothes donations. I trust you made a clear space for the new year and your creativity to blossom. Love those spots on Bella's back and her adorable voice.

  15. What a sweet post! I'm jealous of all your cleaning and admire your determination to purge. How do we accumulate so much stuff?
