Say hello to Boone, left, and Bella, two rescue dogs from Boone, N.C. Boone is a 4-year-old yellow lab mix who, if you let him, would lick you until his tongue fell off. He loves to swim, play keep away and eat watermelon. Bella is a 5-year-old Basenji mix who is convinced she is human. She absolutely hates water but loves squirrel hunting and cuddling. Boone and Bella live in Bend with their parents Sam and Charity.
