      I don’t know if this new thing will last, but I’m enjoying it while it does! 🙂

      That is very cool. I love that! I don’t know if Michael is interested in doing something like that but I’d love it if he did.

    That’s the first thing my daughters dog does when I walk in the door – jumps all over me then lays on her back for belly rubs – so cute!

    How fun, my hubs run trains with me but that is because it is the only thing we do together exercise wise and he hates worrying about me running while it is getting dark.

    Bella is growing up! How sweet! She is just adorable!! I completely understand taking your time allowing her to free roam. It is a big responsibility. I only allow one of my dogs to free roam and that is the oldest (12 years old). Arya we tried at night to have her free roaming and she spent most of the night pacing the house. She just does better either outside or in the laundry room. Bella Rue is still too young, so we will see when she gets older. But both of my big dogs prefer to be outside during the day rather than cooped up indoors anyways.

    How nice that you could go together for a run.

    I have started training Bella free roam almost immediately. First I had her in her bench and go away a little bit longer everytime. After that I started letting her in the room and see what happened. I was very very lucky she never destroyed anything. And now when I go to work she’s in the living room and always lays on the couch when I get home from work. And then you get the best part of day if you ask me: a very happy dog that’s glad Mom is home 🙂

      That’s great that Bella doesn’t destroy things. Our girl is growing up and she seems less likely to destroy things now so that’s good. I do know that she’ll get some kind of anxiety if we leave her for TOO long…time will tell!
