“They contacted us on Facebook saying, ‘I just want to let you know, Bella has landed a spot in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Dare to Look book.’ They are sending us a book with a certificate,” Allison said.
“Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Dare to Look!” is on sale for $29.95 and is available through all major booksellers.
Besides Bella Mae, readers of the “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Dare to Look!” can learn about Kevin Mercado’s record-breaking feat of pinning 161 clothes pegs to his face, artist Ian Cook’s paintings made with remote control cars and Oscar the traveling dog, who has been to more than 30 countries in the past three years.
As for Bella Mae? She has made a complete recovery from her porcupine incident and now spends her afternoons basking in the warm Oklahoma sun, her mind absent from her popularity.
“She’s not as active as she was. She’s still loving and playful,” Allison said.
