Bella Blue born May 27, 2003. Bella we went to the shelter and saw you. Before we could have time with you, someone else had you out introducing you to their dog for compatibility. It didn't go well and you were put back into your shelter home. We had time with you. Treats were your main focus. Watching you walk with your tail in the air, ears up moving right a long. I knew I wanted to take you home. Didn't take you long to feel at home. At first you just did what you wanted. We could pet you, pick you up and love you for as long as you would let us. It took awhile for you to show love towards us. That was all right as I knew when you were ready you would give love back. You made us laugh. A goofy girl. We called you Bella Boo, Belly, Budder, Little Girl. |
You were ours forever. Sadly forever isn't always as long as I would have liked. About three and a half years later, you developed some health issues. The Vet could always get you back on track until July 25, 2016. I woke up to you having a problem breathing and other issues. I dressed and took you to the Vet. She kept you and told me she would call later. When I got a call I was expecting to be told to come pick you up. The Vet told me to come be with you. My heart sank. I got there and was taken inside. You had a blanket on you and getting oxygen. I stroked you and talked to you but not sure you knew it was me with you. The Vet came over and said she didn't think you would make it through the night. My heart sank again. I asked her over and over if there was anything to be done. She sadly shook her head "no". We talked options. I didn't want you to go to Rainbow Bridge alone. I wanted her to have a safe journey knowing how much she was loved. We all know that is one of the hardest decisions we have to make in life. I whispered in her ear the love I felt for her, how she enriched my life, that it was breaking my heart to see her suffer. Before she left this world I told her I would see her in paradise one day. I do believe we will be together again along with my two girls that preceded her. She will always be in my heart. A little black & tan part Minature Pinscher and a mix of unknown. Run free and healthy, wait for me to join you and we spend eternity together. Love you with all my heart forever. Visit me with sweet Bella kisses. Love Momma
