Bella is 12 weeks old. She is our fourth Lab. After losing our previous two labs four months apart we were devestated, but then our house was too quiet and we missed the companionship of a dog. Bella is definitely unique. She will sit of her own accord, and if you tell her “stay” she comes right away. She has a mind of her own for sure. She is the only dog we have had that verbally lets us know when she doesn’t like something we have asked her do. “No” gets us a growl, as well as “leave it.” She does what we tell her to do, but she let’s us know she doesn’t want to. She is a bright ball of joy. I took this photo while out on a walk. She ran to the neighbor’s retaining wall and climbed up to look out. Submitted by Charity G.
