The World Through Bella’s Eyes
A Pitbull Story
I have exciting news people. Lindsay, Bella and I are in the home stretch of finishing a new book. It’s a kids chapter book about Bella’s unique story. We are very excited to share Bella’s story with you and the world.
This story is about Bella’s life and everything shes has gone through in her life. From her being a bait dog the first six months of her life to getting diagnosed with cancer at five years old.
Unfortunately when you hear Pit Bull people’s ears perk up and not in a good way. Lindsay did alot of research before she found Bella. When she was researching to find a dog, she didn’t fall for the trap like some people. She kept reading into Pitbulls and realized how loyal and good they really are. Sadly enough she also realized how misunderstood they are. Thats when she fell in love with this breed.
This story is through Bella’s eyes and she is telling you her story and walking you through her life. This is a kids chapter book, about ages 8-12 is what we’re aiming for. But more importantly, this book is just as much for adults as it is for kids.
We want to share a true story about one unique Pit Bulls story. Is Bella perfect? No, she’s not, but if you ask me she’s pretty darn close. With everything this poor innocent dog has gone through in her life, what’s so fascinating about this whole thing is the kind of dog she is now.
We wrote this book as an inside look into Bella’s life, and what it’s actually like being labeled as a “dangerous” dog. It’s not nice to judge others and be mean to them. But when it comes to an innocent dog and especially a certain breed, how come we forget about that rule? Don’t Judge My Pit Bull by It’s Breed is to share with you how misunderstood and beautiful these dogs are. Are they perfect, of course not, what dog and humans are?
I hope you and your kids enjoy Bella’s story. Below is a sneak peek into the book, enjoy.
Hi. My name is Bella Louise Harrower. You can call me Bella. The reason I want to share my story is because I have seen and been through a lot—some bad, a lot good, and much of it about the struggles of being a Pit Bull. I’m so glad you’re here, and if I could I would kiss your face because I love doing that!
Often people say that Pit Bulls like me are not good dogs. Yes, I know we have been linked to dog fights and other bad stuff. But do you know Pitties are also called “Nanny Dogs,” and back in the 1900s, we were displayed on military slogans and posters as one of America’s most beloved breeds? Our primary job was to watch over kids and keep them safe.
This is what I want you guys to know about me and my brothers and sisters. Because of some not-so-nice people who have done some not-so-nice things to us, teaching us to do bad things, good people are afraid of us. But the truth is Pitties are smart, reliable, and safe. Our instincts make us protective of our families. What we want more than anything is to say hello and play, and show how much we can love. If you give us a chance, maybe you’ll get your face licked a couple dozen times. How does that hurt anyone? It might even tickle. The story I’m going to share with you starts with what happened to me when I was just a little innocent pup.
It all began a long time ago before I was named Bella. If I had a different name then, I don’t remember it. Really, I think, I didn’t have a name at all.
