Belle Star was named when she was a baby. As she got older she grew into being a STAR. She was such a wonderful dog and companion. She was the only dog who got away with getting up on the couch. She wouldn't get in the spots where I would sit or my wife so she wasn't really in the way. And she would hunker down the crack between the cushions to get as low into the couch cushions as possible. She would let her head just hang on the edge of the pillows and fall asleep. Belle was very loving and when younger puppies were born, she would be a wonderful big sister to each of them. There was something very special about Belle that always made people stop us to want to pet her, and take a picture of her. She was truly a STAR. |
The day I lost her is the 2nd most tragic day of my life. Still to this day I have emotional problems dealing with her loss. It was an unexpected passing that happened right in front of my eyes on the living room floor. Most likely a heart seizure and no way to save her. I will always remember you Belle. Each day and night I say the names of ALL of my dogs that have passed. Yours is the first and your daughter is second. You two are the keepers of entrance to my place: "Tranquility at Inspiration Cove". It is not a place that anyone can see or enter. It only exists in my mind. Its a safe place for all of you. Love Always. Always Remembered, NEVER FORGOTTEN.
The years continue to go by and with each year comes this painful day. The sadness still stays and I remember. I always remember the other days as well. When you were born, as a baby and watching you grow up to be a beautiful adult dog. I know the sadness that others feel when they loose their beloved bulldog and it from your love that I can share with them and offer support. I will Always Remember and NEVER FORGET.
