Bella is an incredibly energetic 2-year-old dog, who loves going on adventures and getting into mischief. She’s a very small dog, though, and can’t always reach or jump over things in order to wreak a little havoc — and so she’s found the perfect partner in crime to help out when she needs a boost.
Hank is 10 years old, and Bella’s best friend in the entire world.
Bella is a smart little dog, and she knows that when she’s on top of Hank, it’s much easier to do things like beg for treats
“They absolutely love each other,” Adriana Burkhart, Bella’s mom, told The Dodo. “Bella lives with me and Hank stays at my parents, but whenever I bring her home they both go crazy when they see each other.”
“They’re both cuddle bugs so they sleep together a lot and Bella will chase him around and try and play tug of war with his tail sometimes. He’s so much bigger than her that he just sits down and she stops.”
“Pretty much every day Bella is at least laying on him,” Burkhart said. “She’ll also jump on him when she needs a boost. She’s the smallest of our dogs so she gets on him when she needs attention. She’s used him as transportation around the house, a napping spot, a stepping stool, and even to get high enough to jump over a gate.”
