What you are looking at is Bella's FAVORITE toy in the whole wide world. It's name is Monster!! Don't ask me why we call it Monster but from day one we have just called it that. Today while I was gone Bella ripped it apart, as you can clearly see! About 1 1/2 year ago we knew someday this would happen and have been looking for another monster and have been unable to find one. There are no markings on this toy other then the word China on it's entire body. Has anyone seen this toy before and do you know if it is still available to purchase? The last picture is Bella walking on my nightstand trying to get her monster because that is how much she loves this thing. Now, I ask myself "if Bella really loves this monster so much why would she rip it apart to where she can not ever play with it again?" I have no idea..lol...she is a dog!! So I gather up Bella, her monster (which was placed in a plastic zip bag to protect it) Hallie and Erin and we run to our local pet store. Well, I have looked there before and they did not have it then and I just knew they would not have one now. I was right, no monster! I am just crushed, Bella loves this toy and I really hope to find another one if I can. While we were in the pet store.. look at what I saw...
Meet Roz!! Isn't she just BEAUTIFUL??
She is pink and gray my favorite colors!! I could NOT believe how friendly Roz was. She came straight to me and I held her for a really long time. She snuggled up under my cheek and chin and she was SO loving. (I would share those pictures if I did not look so hideous from running around so I will just share Roz and keep me out of it.. LOL.)
I LOVE all animals but have been a little afraid of birds like Roz because they can bite and bite hard. There was absolutely NO fear with this sweet little girl.
This was after I was "forced" to let her go back in her cage by Hallie and Erin. They wanted to go and Bella was getting fussy. But Roz LOVED me rubbing her neck. My gosh, I am telling you, it is not that often that I fall completely in love with an animal like Roz but she had me at hello!! lol
When we left the pet store Roz started flapping her wings and making ALL kinds of noises and was squawking like she did not want me to leave. Uh... it literally broke my heart to leave her. I almost turned back around and went back to her. That is how much of a fuss she made when I left her. <sighs>
She was only a mere $2,499.99 ...chump change.. right?? Wrong.. lol.
Oh, but if we were not selling and building a house right now I would have been so tempted to buy her right then and there. On my way home I was talking about Roz to Hallie and Erin and I said "that is a diamond ring, it could be a car" LOL.. but never in my life have I ever seen a bird that was this sweet and was so loving. She literally melted my heart. Roz will be seeing me again, that is for sure. I talked to the manager and pleaded with them to "make sure, make triple sure" that who ever buys her will take care of her. I also said that "I am worried about her and who ever gets to take her home that they will treat her right". They assured me that they would only let Roz go to a very responsible owner. Jokingly I asked "would you sell Roz to me?" They said "YES"!! The girl that worked there that got Roz out of her cage told me that one drunk lady came in and wanted to drain her bank account just to buy Roz and they told her "NO". That made me feel better. But I still worry. That is my big heart that I have. I really do worry to much about everything and anything!!
You girls probably think I am crazy for falling in love with this sweet bird. I wish you all could see her in person. Unbelievable and Oh So beautiful!! I really like Roz and clearly Roz really liked me!! How sweet is that??
Roz made my day today!!
Ok, back to Bella's monster, the main purpose of this post...If you girls happen to know where I can get my Bella a new monster please let me know. I would really appreciate it!
Thanks for listening to my ramblings today.
Many hugs!! ~Terri
P.S. Oh, how funny is this? As soon as I got home my husband told me that it is rumored that Casey Anthony now lives in the next city, but same county as us. Oh gosh I really HOPE not. That would be just terrible!! It is ALL over the internet that she is here. So weird!!
