fly catcher

Bella had little tolerance for flies. It's hard to see but in the first picture one has landed on her nose and in the second has just flown off. Later, when Bella started living in our house she would chase flies or any other insects that got inside. As a result our windows were usually covered in dog drool where she tried to catch them.

At times she would see a speck of dirt on the wall and convince herself that it was a fly. She would sit and stare, and sometimes bark, at the spot and would not be convinced it wasn't a fly until distracted by food. This picture was taken in the days when Bella didn't have the inclination to rouse herself to give chase. Taken on 5 September 2006.
