Living Teddy Bear in Docklands

By Andia May

The lovely Cavoodle was the centre of attention as she gracefully posed for a photo, just like a model.

We met Jo and her dog, Bella, 5, as they were taking a jolly stroll after a cold and rainy week – both of them enjoying the winter breeze being conquered by the warmth of the sun along Harbour Esplanade.

“She’s just like a living teddy bear,” Jo described her loyal companion. “She is so gentle and just loves cuddles.”

Jo said that her living teddy bear would randomly approach pedestrians on the streets offering cuddles and asking to be patted – for she was always the centre of attention and the subject of people’s cameras and eyes due to her loving and friendly personality.

“Sometimes I think that she doesn’t know she’s a dog,” Jo said humorously. “She doesn’t know how to bark!”

Jo also explained that the reason for calling her dog “Bella” was that in Italian and Latin the word meant beautiful and it suited her delightful friend due her “gorgeous temper”.

Bella and Jo love living in Docklands due to being close to everything and having colossal crowds around, as Bella finds joy in being around people.

The quiet atmosphere during the weekends and being only minutes away from the rush and liveliness of the CBD also appeals to these ladies.
