Pet Profiles by Marie Havens

August 2011

1: What’s your name?

Bella McConnell-Obetz.

2: Who do you belong to?

The Beach and the Sea.

3: What’s your breed?

I think I’m a Golden Retriever, but I’ve been told otherwise.

4: When & where were you born?

I was born in Princeton, NJ.  But a lady never reveals her age…although I feel like a kid when I know my dad or mom is going to take me to the beach.

5: Where do you reside?

I’m a proud Southampton Resident!

6: Where’s your favorite NYC hotspot?

Never more than a walk away from Cipriani on 59th so I can see Sergio or Desmond’s with Chef Hart.

7: What do you like to do in your free time?

Swim, swim, & more swimming.  Also, I love to stare at my father while he is cooking…or ride in the mini van with mom.

8: What’s your favorite food?

Tough question…all I real know is that don’t like asparagus.

9: What’s your favorite possession?

My family and freedom.

10: Who’s your best friend?

Another tough question, I’ve made so many friends at home and on the beach or at Thrift Shop and Shelter where I volunteer.  It’s hard to pick just one…I’m a lover and a friend to all. If had to pick…my sisters Baby and Zsa (cats), my brother Jackson, cat and River Matloff, Golden Beach Buddie in training.
