The Divine Miss Bea

When Beatrix needed a few days of fostering before her new family could take her, it was easy duty to sign up for. Who could resist this face?


It was really less fostering than babysitting. This little one-kidney girl needed a watchful eye as she healed from her spay surgery, and a little big-dog socialization wouldnโ€™t hurt considering she would be sharing her new home with an adult Homeward Bound alum.


Jackson is our mellow boy; he has never met a dog he doesnโ€™t like so I had no worries at all about him. Despite his serious face, he is a lover, and took to her immediately, acting as her protector –


an ever-present, watchful knight.


Bella is our princess girl. And while she loves and shares with her brother freely, she was unimpressed with this cute little bundle of joy,


and not exactly overjoyed about sharing her house,


her Daddy,


and definitely not her toys with little the brave little Miss Bea.


While Bella generally behaved herself, she was clear that there is room for only one princess in this house!


All of this was good preparation for her introduction to her new big brother, Charlie. Apparently he is as tolerant as Jackson. A good thing for this rascally girl! Puppy got your tail?


It was a gift to have her for a few days. She left behind a mountain of laundry, two exhausted doggies, and took with her a tiny piece of my heart.


Wonderful life, little Beatrix girl.
