Memories of Issy Mae Belle
Issy Mae Belle, was 3lb chihuahua, who always wagged her tail constantly. When she first came home from an 8 hr trip from Richmond, VA to Vermont, the first place she made her bed was my bedroom slipper. She crawled right in there and made her bed. She didn't like people to come to our house, even if they were weekly visitors, she barked at them like she never saw them before. When she heard the engine of the UPS/FedEx truck she would go running to the sun run and look out the window and bark, warning them to stay away. She loved the out doors, we tried to walk her, but it didn't go too well, so she would just stay on the covered porch and enjoy herself.

She was a tri-color girl ... she loved to lick my eyes when she could get a chance. I would call her "Momma". She gave birth to one puppy, but it was a still born, so, we decided no more trying. She loved her squeeky ball, every time I would pick the ball up from the floor she would go running so I would toss it, and then she would kick it around with her front lets and growl and bark at it with her teeth/mouth.

She was the queen of the household. She let you know, but with a caring loving heart.

Her favorite food was Cheesie Weezies, vanilla ice cream, her dog treats (yogurt/chicken), and she loved peanut butter M&Ms (I only gave her one).

She loved to lay in the sunroom and bask in the sun throughout the year. She was our brave girl - always strong, and bold - bark constantly. She loved looking out the window and bark at the walking neighbors that came by. We will miss her, she passed in her sleep on July 6 2021 about 4:30pm. My Issy Belle, my Me Belle ... Azul is waiting for you, he'll be so happy to see you.

Happy Birthday Issy, you would of been 16 today. I watched your videos that I made of you through our years together, smiled, cried and most of all I miss and love you so much. I held you (your urn) today while watching TV, you sat with me when I ate my lunch, and I gave Puma and Lily Mae Belle, (yes, I named her after you the "Mae Belle" part of the name) gave them each piece of a cheese that you loved so much, which you knew as "cheesie wheesie". Puma has taken your spot in the house now, she barks at everyone and everything that walks by the house like you had done. She misses you, when I say your name, she barks and she turns her head to look for you. Sadly, Fito passed away on August 18th 2022 from Liver Disease he had for 3 yrs. He died at home in my arms sitting together one last time. He licked my arm as to say "goodbye' and I know he didn't want to go, but he was suffering, he could no longer walk or bark, and the disease totally destroyed his fur. A day or 2 before he passed on, Lily and him were doing a special chatter with each other, they sounded like squirrels, it was a bark it was like a different dog lingo I've never heard before. It was like Fito was telling her that both Pappas will always love you, and you be kind to them. Ever since then Lily never leaves my side, she always want to sleep with me, never with the other papa. I will create a rainbow page for him on my birthday in June. I still cry a lot and say his name. I miss him so much Issy, like I miss you & Azul. Now you 3 are together, and I can not wait to be with you all again. I love you. Happy Birthday from all of us Issy, with love....

Hi Issy! My little girl, I miss you so much - It is now 2 yrs since you've been gone, and it's still difficult to have you gone. At times in the middle of the night, I hear a faint bark in the distance in the computer room where you never woke up from your nap. I can't wait till the day I feel your warm tongue all over my face. Papa misses you too, Puma & Lily are doing good, you know they are 1/2 sisters but 4 yrs apart. Lily has taken to me that she loves sleeping with me at night. Fito is gone you know, liver disease took him. It will be a year next month, and I will build up my courage to make him a memorial. I know you are with him and Azul. I love you Issy and will always love you.

August 19 2023 Hi Issy, I just want to tell you that we love you and miss you so much. Yesterday, was one yr that Fito had passed, but yesterday I spent the day going through all yours and his and Azul's pictures and videos. Seeing and watching you all brought back beautiful/loving memories that I will always treasure and it brought a smile upon my face. I miss you so much little girl. Puma is doing good, she's now 6 yrs old and she's the same as always she's such a great girl, she misses you too in fact when she heard you bark on the video, she was looking and barking for you. Lily, you never met. She came 4 mos after pass. She's a long hair, same color as Azul, and she was born in Oct 21 2021 and we got her on Dec 19 2021. She's Puma's half sister by her mother. Same personality, but and she loved Fito. Fito and Lily had special bond. As Fito was close to me, Fito passed, Lily became close to me. Maybe Fito told her too. I love you Issy, we all do, esopecially your dad - Steve - he really misses you. xoxoxox

February 19,2024 - My little girl, I miss you. I was just visiting Fito's page, and told him what was going on in our lives, since you both been gone. We miss you so much, and just last night your Papa and I were talking about you, and laughing how you would hide behind the toilet when firecrackers or thunder rocked the house. But you stopped that when you got older, and just wanted to hind under the covers with me or Papa. Everytime the UPS man comes, I miss you rushing to the sunroom window and bark at him, Puma barks, so does Lily, but they run to bhe back door. You used to love in the sunroom on your bed, and loved the heat - now it's empty without you, just flowers and plants now, papa took out your bed, to make room for more plants. I wished he would of left it. Papa is thinking of retiring early now, he's gonna be 63 this yr, and the job is getting to him, he's stressing, and getting up in years isn't good for him (he stresses a lot). I worry he needs to go see a doctor. We got a new generator for the house now, finally. Though the house is 125 yrs old, we are gonna replace the pellet stove with better heating system (lugging the pellet bags is getting to your Papa). And we are gonna put central air in as well. My health is the same, when Fito had health issues, I was on my feetk basically 24/7. He couldn't walk any more, the liver disease (which he had since you were here with us) finally took him. He lost his bark, his leg muscles, and fur - poor guy, he never cried, and he still played with the new girl, Lily and Puma. It was really hard August 18th 2022 He died at the age of 9. you 14 and Azul 10. Puma is now 7, and I starting to dread the day when it's time. I love you Issy so much, we all do. One day we will all be one big happy family again. I have to say, I miss seeing you laying in front of the pellet stove. xoxox good night little angel.
