Being Bella Pomeranian: Featured Dog in PetMeds Commercial
Hi there! I am Bella Pomeranian, the star of the PetMeds TV commercial. If you’ve wondered where I came from and what kind of life I have then please read on, there is so much I have to share!
First, let me say that I am a very fortunate pup. I have a home and pawrents that look out for my care; I come from some fairly blue Pomeranian blood with a sire who was an international champion show dog. But the show ring was not to be in my future, no, my future turned out to be at the other end of the spectrum: Rescue. The way it happened is also related to how I got to where I am today. My family suffered a huge loss, the passing of another pet in the family. First there was the grief, and then the desire to adopt another dog. After searching on the internet, and then on Facebook, my pawrents turned to Southern California Pomeranian Rescue and adopted Buddy. Here is the picture of my pawrents, me and Buddy at that first Christmas.
Before I was a PetMeds TV Commercial star, most of my furrends knew me as Bella as in “Bella Blankies” on Facebook. Mommy started by pledging 20 fleece blankets as a way to help SCPR raise money to help pay to transport 11 Pomeranians from an Iowa puppymill to California. The Poms were being “retired” from their life as breeding stock, and SCPR wanted to help them. Mommy’s blankies were a hit and the donations came quickly. Mommy made more and they were dubbed “Bella Blankies.” Mommy has now made more than 475 Bella Blankies, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Rescue. I like to pose with the Blankies Mommy makes too. The first photo abpve is one of Mommy’s favorite pictures of me with a Valentine Blankie from last year. You can also see me in action with the blankies in the video below.
I get to go lots of places, too! Mommy takes me with her to all of the adoption events in Southern California that she goes to, and I get to meet lots of people. After being on TV I get recognized nearly everywhere we go and people like to take my picture. Sometimes people will say, “She looks just like the dog in the PetMeds TV commercial!” and Mommy just puffs up with a big grin and replies “She IS the dog in the commercial!”
I’ll be sharing a weekly blog post about my life and adventures, so please ask me questions (about anything) and I will answer!
