    They are both SUPER DUPER CUTE!!!! I’m partial to Bella – she looks like one of my dogs 😉 I’m sure which ever puppy you choose will be a great addition to your furfamily!!! So exciting!!!

      Pretty sure we’re going with Bella. I think as first time dog owners, getting a dog that is still young, already good with cats and semi-trained is BIG. With Jazz we’d be doing everything from scratch.

    Bella definitely has some pit in her! They can be such lovable, cuddly, sweet dogs. I love that she fell asleep and was snoring (our pit snores loudly!) – that’s definitely a sign that she’s comfortable!

      When she first got to our house and was anxious and barking and didn’t like Michael….I was like “we have to go with Jazz”. But Bella calmed down and got super comfortable really fast. That’s good!

    They are both adorable but I could tell before I got to the end of your post that Bella was the one, fell in love with that face!

    You’re going to love having a dog, it seems a lot more daunting than it actually is. We waited years, too many years, before we took the plunge and got one. We were needlessy worried. She’s our baby and can’t imagine life without her. I wish we had room for more dogs in our house.

    Dogs just “know” who’s right for them – you guys all look great together!

      Thanks Candace! I hope you are right. I am a worrier anyways so of course I’m super anxious about making the RIGHT decision…not just for us, but for the cats, for the dogs….I want both of them but it’s not feasible…

    It certainly looks like Bella knows who you should choose 😀

      I think Bella picked us. 🙂

    Bella means beauty – but oh so hard, to choose between two. Follow your heart.

      The bad part –Michael wants to keep the name Bella. I’d rather change it, but since she’s 8 months old now that might confuse her. Because she knows her name and comes when you call her. I just think of Twilight (which I hate) when I hear the name. LOL

      1. Candace

        Funny because I thought the same thing – so many Bella’s out there because of that dumb series – I think if you can find another 2 syllable name that ends in -a she’ll adjust to it. They hear sounds and inflection rather than actual words. So Emma, Ella, Eva, or something similar might work too?

        But then again, I have heard of people changing their pets name completely and the pet catches on pretty quickly.

          I’m working on Michael. He likes the name Bella. Who knew he’d be a closet Twihard. 😉
