We've only seen her through our fence. Her name is Bella and she's a sweet dog, but very lonely. She lives for the moments Panda and Sadie come out into the backyard to play. She plays vicariously through them as I toss tennis ball after tennis ball. Bella races along the fence back and forth repeatedly pretending she is part of the action. Her owners don't seem to like it when I toss her a ball, but sometimes I just do because she loves it so. She will run along the fence with it in her mouth, while my spoiled dogs chase the ones I throw over and over again.
Our neighbors aren't bad people, but they just don't seem to understand that a dog needs exercise and attention. I've never seen Bella go on a walk. No one plays with her in the backyard. She gets yelled at when she barks (if they are home to hear it).
Bella has worn a trench along the fence where she races in her pretend play with my lucky dogs.
