Yes. Both of those.
Home sweet home first. We just spent five days on the road for work and while it’s very enjoyable to go out and play concerts, it’s always nice to return home to one’s own bed, one’s own meal prep, and of course one’s own furry children. Especially one’s own famous dog…yes we’ll eventually get to the famous part. The first day of our tour was quite long with a three hour drive to the gig, then another hour to the hotel after (not to mention it was hot as donkey balls), and our last hotel was not pet-friendly (fuckers), so that meant this was the first tour Bella would stay at home with the neighbors (Grandma Phyllis, Grandpa Bob and Tasha). This was quite sad for us. It sucks not being able to take your dog with you (yes we’re THAT in love with this little creature) but she had a blast. Bob and Phyllis are retired so she pretty much had 24/7 hooman action, as well as a fellow four-legged friend, Casper (their big ol’-man Lab) to romp around with. We’re pretty sure she didn’t miss us much if at all and we couldn’t imagine a better place for her to stay or better people to watch her.
And now on to the exciting news. Bella is in a music video!!!
Yes, our dog is famous. Well, okay maybe not famous, but she WAS included in Catie Curtis’ ‘Live Laugh Love’ music video honoring the Gratitude Challenge. Catie asked for photos of things you’re grateful for so Jonathan submitted her photo (unbeknownst to me) and low and behold she was included in the video!!! You can see her at the :59 mark.
How cool is that?!?!?! Catie even emailed Jonathan telling him that Bella ‘really got to her’. Well, we know the feeling, because we thought five short days without her was really awful! We. Love. This. Dog.
