Fly free Bella with your babies. I'm certain there will be many lizards to chase at the bridge. Watch over your family down here and your buddy Tucker because they will be loving you and thinking of you always. Hugs to you Kathleen and to your daughter.
May your beautiful memories of Bella comfort you as you start on the journey of grieving.
Even if you have been mentally preparing for this day, it still hurts like heck to lose a furry family member.
Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.
PS Hoping you see lots of lizards on those rocks!!!
I am sorry it was already time to say goodbye. I will always remember being part of "Team Bella" :wink2: I am sure she will be chasing lizards! Hugs to you, your daughter and Tucker. RIP sweet Bella...you will be missed!
I was so sad to read this. You made the right decision. How lovely to have such a kind thoughtful neighbour. I am sure the lizards will love the new rocks and it will be a peaceful place for you to sit and watch them and remember sweet Bella.
So very very sorry for your loss of sweet Bella. I have no words that will help you other than to say that because you loved your girl so much you were able to let her go peacefully to the bridge, where I am sure she will be busy making new friends.
HOW DO WE SAY GOODBYE
TO THE ONES WE LOVE THE MOST
WHEN IN OUR HEART OF HEARTS, WE KNOW
WE NEED AND WANT THEM CLOSE
NOW CLOSE YOUR EYES REAL TIGHTLY
LET YOUR FEELINGS OVERFLOW
Just reading this, I've followed Bella's story and rooted for her all along the way. I'm so very sorry for your loss. You and your daughter did the bravest thing to let her go. You gave her such a wonderful life. Take care.
I am SO very sorry for your loss!
I have followed Bella's saga all along. I hate to call battles with cancer a journey because journeys just seem like so much fun ( although you surely made Bella's life seem fun!)Since the start of all her troubles, I gave up my search for a Golden and now have a lovely Lab named Otis. He will do :>)
I was the caretaker to my husband of 38 yrs who had suffered with his own 11 yr. battle with cancer and finally succumbed last January 2017, while Bella trudged along.
I sometimes compared myself to you as HIS caretaker and hoped I did as good a job! You sought out lizards and water and all the things Bella loved and you sacrificed so much just to make some of the loveliest memories I ever had the pleasure to witness being created.
Your posts sometimes provided me a sliver of light at the darkest time in my life, as Bella was still trotting along- you were still hopeful.
The story should be a blog, a novel, could be a movie, but unfortunately, it is life as all of those things are so glamorous in comparison. If it became any such tale it might be titled " Loving Bella" rather then Losing Bella.
She will be missed forever.
Thank you for sharing her story.
Sending hugs your way,
I have followed Bella's story too and I want you to know what a wonderful owner you were and you made Bella's life so wonderful and you made that decision to let her fly and be happy at the rainbow bridge. Hugs to you and your daughter.
