"I don't want to go! And I hate the name Bella!"
If you're bummed about summer coming to an end, Bella the German Shepherd can relate. When play time is over and her owner tells her she has to get out of the water, Bella throws a tantrum like an oversized 3-year-old in need of a nap. She whines, howls, and splashes in an effort to guilt her owner into letting her stay and swim. She acts so distraught you'd think she was trying to signal that she'd sniffed out a body submerged in the water, and that a murder investigation could be solved if only she could swim for five more minutes. "Dammit, I just need more time!"
I'm sure Bella's just upset about having to go home. Just to be safe, though, police may want to check out the area.
