Miss Princess Tinkerbelle Lee, aka 'Belle'.

We have always said that when Dixie passed we would have to get another dog ASAP to create a distraction for us, especially for Anna Kate. Well, here she is. She's absolutely, in no way, a replacement for Dixie. There will NEVER be another Dixie. But now we have Belle, a Toy Fox Terrier who is 6 months old and when full grown, will be 8 1/2" tall and weigh approximately 9-10 pounds. She's a tiny little thing and so adorable.

Anna Kate and I went to Wal-Mart after school/work to pick out her new bed, collar, food & water bowls and a few toys. I could NOT pass up the pink and brown toile bed with the satin bow. Too stinkin' cute! After that we went to Wendy's (AK's favorite) to eat so we wouldn't be sitting at the house going crazy waiting on Daddy and Belle.

And here is Little Miss Priss with her new 'baby'. Aren't they precious?! Belle is a little uncertain about AK's wild and crazy self, but they'll adjust to each other. She actually started to play with her toys while Anna Kate was in the tub and now she's snoozing up a storm in her posh bed, covered up with her purple blankie that Anna Kate promptly assigned to her.

So now we're a family of four again and of course still really missing Dixie, but we know she is looking down on us and smiling, thinking to herself, 'Phew! I'm glad it's Belle having to hide under the sofa from that crazy kid, because Heaven knows I could never fit under there!'

Belle is adorable!! I'm sure AK will find a million ways to dress her up and play baby with her. Heaven help Belle, she has no idea what is in store for her.
