My grandson and his fiancee live in Corpus Christi and they were working in their yard when a dog came up and started to play with their dog Charlie. She had no inclination to leave and so stayed the night. In the meantime a very persuasive Zach was on the phone to me telling me that a stray dog had come into their home and they would love for me to have her. I knew I didn't want to take on another animal at that time so I said no way can I take her.
As things turned out, I now have another pet in my house by the name of Isabelle. She's a lab or lab mix, is about 2-1/2 years old, has had at least one litter of puppies and is very, very affectionate. She has become my dog in a very short time and follows me everywhere.
She answers to Isabelle, Isabella, Izzy, Bella and as Jill Symons had coined her name, "Isabella Mozzarella".
