Gone too soon
It is with inconsolable grief that I write this post. Today my beloved ‘Bella passed away. Complications of her medical problems have eaten away at her poor bones to the point that she was no longer able to walk, to eat, to play or have any quality of life.
The breed standard for the Newfoundland dog states: “Sweetness of temperament is the hallmark of the Newfoundland; this is the most important single characteristic of the breed.” My Bella fit that hallmark trait in every way.
As painful, heart breaking and heart wrenching of a decision it was to make, we know it was time for our big, beautiful Bella to go and wait for us at the Rainbow Bridge.
My ‘Bella-boo, I will never forget you. I will meet you at the rainbow bridge when my turn comes to join you in heaven.
Godspeed, dear girl. I love you.
