Belle’s Tribute, from her mom – “I lost little Belle this past Sunday, after 12 years. She was my companion dog, and my own little caregiver. Some friends gave her to me at first, because I was depressed about my ex taking off with my son, and PTSD from my former career. A little later on, I developed some spinal problems and had to fight with disability to get it taken care of. She never left my side. Thru most of her adult dog life, she lay beside me in bed, thru the pain, frustration and sadness. She gave up her life for me, and when I was finally fixed and ready to give her the life she deserved, I lost her to a stroke. I’m looking for a new loved one to adopt, even though she is irreplaceable. The hole left by her absence is too large.” Belle will be missed greatly, but always remembered with happiness.
