Thanks for the welcome everyone
Kristen, Bella really does give the best cuddles. She's so cute, in the morning, she'll stretch and put her nose on the side of my bed, then she just jumps up and sits next to me, eventually leaning/falling over and just lays there stretched across me. I guess Anatolian's are known for their "Anatolian Lean" - it's their way of showing affection. She also likes to hog the bed (as pictured) and has laid like that for hours before with me on lazy weekend mornings.
Snifferspommom, Bella is extremely soft! Her whole body is soft and fluffy, then she has a random patch of fur that is more Golden Retriever texture right on her bum. My family always jokes about how with all the hair we brush out of her we could make a sweater or something because it's so soft and warm
Also thanks again for the graduation congrats (Deborah)! I just wish it was easier to obtain a job! I feel pretty lucky to have such a beautiful dog as well.
