Bella approached bones with the same seriousness and intensity as she did food. I was amazed at her ability to grind away on the biggest of bones until there was barely anything left. I was always struck by the contrast between the strength of her jaws and muscles as she chewed on bones and the gentleness with which she gripped my arms in those same jaws when she was playing with me. She did bite me once, by accident, very hard. It hurt. A lot. Taken on 8 August 2008.
