Bella the Golden Retriever is our official office greeter. Bella started her career at The Bazel Group, Inc. as a young puppy of 12 weeks old. In dog years, she has been with us for 49 years (7 human years) and still greets everyone with a smile and wagging tale. When she is not in the office greeting our guests, Bella can be seen walking down Music Row or posing for pictures that her humans like to take. Bella prides herself on being on full time squirrel patrol and wants everyone to stop in and say hello. (There can never be too much petting you know) Bella accomplishes all of the above in spite of not having pockets.
