Courtney, Jason, and Bella's Proper Introduction

Postby nineball2727 » Tue Dec 16, 2008 3:49 pm

We are Courtney 23, Jason 35, Bella 1yr(dog), and Buddy 2yr(cat). We live in Webster, TX. Right outside Houston.
We have had our Bella for a little over a year now.
We first became interested in pibbles, because a good friend of ours was owned by a pibble named Bitty. Bitty was the greatest dog I have ever been around (this is Courtney by the way). I had never believed all the crap about pit bulls being vicious animals. I know that certain people just shouldn't have animals. Anyway, Bitty was a sweet and very well trained pit. She was my friend Krissa's best friend, they had been through a lot. Bitty took care of me during a very difficult time in my life as well. A few years after meeting Bitty, she was diagnosed with cancer. After my friends had spent a lot of money trying to keep her alive, and after she was in too much pain, they had to let her go. It was a very devastating time for us. I cried for 2 days. We know she is in a better place now. Anyway, thats the basic story of how our pibble interest was sparked.
We ended up with our Bella a few months before Bitty passed in early November 2007. We had gone to petsmart to pick up some cat food. On our way into the store, we noticed an SUV with some teenage kids, giving away some puppies, we decided we'd look on our way back out. When we finished our shopping, we went to go look at the puppies, there were a whole, whole bunch of them in the back of the suv all bundled up(it was freezing), and that's where I fell in love. I had picked up a little boy puppy at first, but I had to put him back, because I knew I wanted a girl. So I reached in the big pile of puppies and pulled out a little baby girl right in the middle of all the other puppies. She was tiny and shaking in the cold. After holding her for a minute or so, Jason told me to put her back, so we could go. I couldn't do it. We hadn't really discussed getting a dog in a while, and had planned on getting something small. But I just couldn't let her go, there was nothing anyone could do at that moment. Something just told me, do not put down this puppy. So, we had a new puppy. The kids that gave her to us, told us she was half pit, half german shepherd. We don't really see the german shepherd at all, neither does anyone else. To make a long story shorter, she's been the greatest animal we've ever owned, god forbid something happen to her, we'll never own another type of dog.
We don't really have a lot of future plans for her, except for her to take care of us. Although, I have thought about training her to be a therapy dog, but that would be about it.
Our other interests include, playing pool competitively, some golf related video games, our 2 year old kitty Buddy, our family, our extended family, and all that really takes up all of our time.

no... its photoshop. Its close though, if i plug in the colors, most of them are monochromatic, so he's mostly white and gray, but not all the way. I also saturated the blue in his eye.
