Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there was a beautiful Belle, just waiting for someone to come and rescue her.
At the same time, there was a family who had just lost a very dear loved one. They began to talk and realized that they would just have to have another loved one to share their life with.
They traveled to the far, far away land in search of a new loved one. When they got to the land, they noticed a slight stinch in the air, but that helped them to know that they were in the right place.
"This stinks," commented the young daughter of the family. Her older sister said, "What did you think a land far, far away would smell like?"
One by one, they filed through the candidates who were just howling to become a new member of their family. The ugly ones went first, because there was no way the family could love an ugly family member.
Then, all at one time, their eyes met with the beautiful Belle. She was young, probably not a quite 7 years old. But that was okay, the family thought they could use some young blood in their house. She was young, but her curly, black locks just took their hearts. Her dark eyes gazed into theirs with deepest affection. Surely, the family had found their new family member (also known as a dog). The trip to the land far, far away (also known as the Animal Rescue League) had been a success.
The family traveled home with their new Belle. Belle has now been with the family through two houses. She's getting older now and her new yard is perfect for her, it's not quite as large. She also has a sister named Mollie.
