Bella got the honor of travelling to Morris, IL with Mom and Dad all by herself. She was treated like a queen with a limousine service at her beck and call. Of course, I have been worried for weeks on how she would do in a large building with 300+ people because she is still very timid with these types of surroundings. As in previous posts I indicated I was taking Bella for nursing home visits to help her adjust to this. We have to say Bella is much more better with 2-leggers than 4-leggers. She was timid but so good during it all with all the "Bright Lights" and clapping, and OH How Cute, etc. etc. She sure did much better on stage then Mom did as I hardly got started talking and started to cry. This is when my husband went and sat down, what a trooper he was. Of course, he was in charge of handling the camera while we were on stage and he said his hand was shaking so bad he couldn't take pictures. WTF is up with that?
Here is her schedule on how we prepared for her big weekend, we take things slow with Bella as not to stress her to much.
Monday - Nails were trimmed
Tuesday - Ears were washed
Wednesday - Eyelashes trimmed
Thursday - Nursing Home visit (fail), trip to the Pet store (success)
Friday - Rest up and pack, teeth brushed
Saturday Morning - Bath time
So without further ado here is Miss Bella enjoying her special weekend like a queen. Or as the saying goes.....The Bell(a) of the Ball.
Friday Night Packing of her overnight bag
Here is my special bag I got to take
All the things in my overnight bag
My pawty dress
I wore the silver bling collar with my dress
Saturday Morning Bath time
Not favorite thing to do when you have two 4-leggers begging you to get out.
Arrival at my hotel room
You say this is my very own bed
I'll take it!
Claiming my bed
Nice photo Mom, you need be quicker with that flashy beast
Okay a little better
At the Big Event
Here is a not so good picture that my Dad took, he said his hand was shaking to much. BOL
Note: We are still waiting for the pictures from the professional photographer. We will post them when we get them, we are sure they are 100% better.
After all the Ball festivities they said I had to attend the After Hours Party. When is a girl suppose to get her beauty sleep.
Here I am trying to understand why all these people make such a fuse over me
Finally a little break
Oh, can you see my bling collar I wore with my dress at the ball. It didn't show up in the other picture of me and my dress. Everyone just loved my bling collar.
Please take me back to my hotel room.
Finally some sleep
Seriously, why did she think she need so many pictures of me sleeping
Here I am waiting for Mom and Dad to finish packing to go back home after my big weekend. I still look very sleepy
I am not cut out to be a late night pawty hound
Wow, what a weekend I had.
