Arrival Story:
Bella was offered to me from a co-worker in April. Her mother had stopped nursing the puppies at a month old and she was very small. Bella's weight was a mere 5 lbs. I immediately fell in love with her. When I took her to the vet that same week, he said that she was very sick with 4 types of worms. Since she was so small I had to have her dewormed twice once that day and then after she turned 10 lbs. Well she loved to eat (haven't found a labrador that didn't) and in no time she was gaining weight. Then found out that she had a bad UTI infection. She is now just finishing up with those antibiotics. But is gaining weight fine. She went for her last shot yesterday and weighed in at a wopping 31 lbs. She'll be 4 months on Sunday. I couldn't be more in love with her. She is very loving and does have an attitude. Just ask her big brother "Dog". He is getting used to having her around now. They play very well together. I'm thinking that she is making him young again.

Her mom was a black labrador and dad they think was a flat coated retriever. Don't care. She's beautiful. Bella means beautiful. Her fur is like glass and now that she's getting older its length is almost like that of a golden.

Bella's Last Day

I just wanted to share that my beautiful Bella passed away in her sleep.

She needed hip surgery yesterday and came through it with flying colors. There was some hemmoraging during the surgery but the Dr's. thought it had stopped. I asked what happened and they thought she clotted and a blood clot went to her heart.

At 9:00pm - Aug. 2nd 2011 she was alive when the vet left but this morning at 8:00am she was gone.

I loved this dog like she was human. We were soulmates. She was only 4 years old. She slept with me. Ate with me. Went everywhere with me. Sat in the front seat next to me. She was going to be my retirement dog. I am very lost now. I have cryed since 8:30am and it's now 4:00pm. The tears just keep flowing. I am so sad. I loved Bella more than any other animal that I have ever owned. My heart is broken. I know it will heal but she was only 4. How fair was that.

Dogster has been a great site for me to share all of her issues. She was adopted and has been sick for many years. I just thought if I kept taking her to vets and getting her well that she would live to be an old, old dog. That was my plan. But GOD's plan was not that way. He chose to take my sweet Bella and I have to accept it. I know she is in a better place now and I will accept it was GOD's will. But that doesn't help me now. I already miss her. I have planned this "event" for sometime now. She would have had a new hip to run and play like she loved to do. She was very special to me. She was the first dog that I didn't' have to share with family, kids, or husbands. SHE WAS JUST MINE...... I am so glad that I have this place to share my thoughts because I am hurting so bad. I just don't know what to do. My tears won't bring her home but they are helping me to heal. God bless you my sweet baby. Though we only had 4 years on this earth together they were great years. Every moment of every day I loved you more and more and now I think every tear I shed is for every one of those days. Peace to you my sweet little one and I hope you are having the best time on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Please wait for me. I will see you again someday. I just have to believe that you are in a better place and that your hips are working like new and you are playing with the rest of my pack from way back to the 50's. They will help you through this and I know that when I cross that bridge they all and you will probably knock me down with happiness. I can't wait for that day. I LOVE YOU BELLA WOCK. YOU ARE MY BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE......

Hi everyone (including pups),

My name is Bella. I haven't been writing my diaries lately. Not much has happened except that my new fence is working out great. It seems so nice to be able to have my freedom most of the time. I only need to be on leash when not on my property. Mom loves the fence too. I trained in 4 days because mom forgot to put on my collar and I stayed in the parimeter of the property. She said what a close call that one was. She has done that periodically to see if I'll stay and I always do. She is very happy about that.

Went to the vets over the summer and my weight has been dropping a little. My current weight is 74 lbs. , but I am not losing anymore. So the vet did another test on me and my thyroid is out of wack again. He says this happens sometimes. So I'm on another different pill(s) everyday. I go next weekend for a weigh in. Mom says that I look slimmer than I did before the new medicine. I'm hoping that this works because it gets so frustrating not being the right weight. Mom says that it will be ok and we will keep trying until we get it right. At the vets the ladies there say that I'm doing better with my nail clipping too. That made mom really happy. She can't do it but would like to. I guess I'm too big for one person to handle and she is afraid that she will hurt me by cutting the nails too close. Thats ok., I love the ladies at the vets. They all know me by name and are really nice to me. They always give me treats for being good. Treats for not being good too. So pray that my new meds will work.

Next week is Turkey day. Everyone have a good one. I know I will.
Hugs and barks,


Today's the day

July 3rd. 2008,

Tonight I'm getting my testing by the Invisable Fence man. He is going to see how my training has been going and if he thinks I'm ready then he is going to take and hook up the fence to be working. My mom says only 1 more day Princess and you can have a little more freedom. Mom is getting nervous about it. She says she hopes that I am going to pass so that I can be free. But she feels bad too. Our little private walks for the past 15 months have been very special. But she knows this will be better for not only her but especially for me. I'm still a little confused about all of this ruckus but I'm trusting my mom that she knows what is best for me.

Another week and back to the vets for a re-weigh and nail clipping. I'm supposed to get more shots too! She doesn't go into much detail about that but I'm suspecting that it isn't going to be a great day at the vets. She says if you start losing weight you are going to feel so much better. I just love my mom. She is so special to me. Every night I sleep on the bed with her. She wakes up and pets me. I love it when she does that because it really feels good. I love to be groomed too. She brushes me almost every day. She says I'm so beautiful. It must be a good thing because she is smiling when she says it. So every dog and puppy out there please wish me luck on my fence thing. I'm sure I'll be ok. Bark to you all later. Woof, woof -
