Middle Aged and Old :: Sweet Pea and Belle

Middle Aged and Old :: Sweet Pea and Belle

Sat. 10.26.19 – Sweet Pea and I are in Arizona visiting / dog sitting the lovely, but very elderly, Miss Belle le Cane while her people are out and about. Our good old friend Miss Belle is now 14 1/2 years old – or somewhere in her 90-somethings. Belle is feeling her age.

Belle arrived to Family Hanen as a rescue puppy in October of 2005 while I was away at grad school. There were a lot of good years in between 2005 and 2019: dog beach, dog parades, dog sitting, walks, playing fetch – and a whole lot of photos.

Belle is still trucking on with heart pills and CBD oil. There is very little running but she perks up about an hour or so after the food/pills/hempoil.

In other news, Arizona is Arizona. It is dry and warm to hot.

Photo taken by Ms. Jen with her Nikon D850 and a 50mm lens. For the curious, Sweet Pea is a rescue as of last year August and is estimated to be between 6-8 years old, most likely closer to 8.

Sweet, but Evil

Hello, 3:39am!!!! Game on. Here's Mousie!

Photos taken by Ms. Jen with her Nokia Lumia 1020.

Sat 11.02.13 – The two sides of Belle le Cane in real life today:
Left or first photo: 3:39am after she woke me at 3:11am up by hopping up and down on me as I slept (she weights 16 lbs / 7.25kg) and then after two walks around the apartment complex would still not settle down to let me go back to sleep.
Right or second photo: 7:48pm when it was time to play with Mousie.
Belle is now over 8 years old and has the energy of a 2 year old. ((O.o))

The Puli and Belle

The Puli and Belle



Sun 02.08.09 – While walking at Huntington Beach’s Dog Beach this afternoon, we saw / met our first ever Hungarian Puli dog. The Puli in this above photo was defending its owner from Belle who was shaking sand off of herself. Cute and funny all at the same time.
