Memories of Bella
Bella, my beautiful sweetie

I remember when I first got you honey. I was just 8 years old and riding my bike in the neighbor's yard. My sister called me in and had a camera in my face, and being the sassy 8 year old you knew me to be, I said, "What?!" and as I looked down I saw you for the first time. I picked you up and held you and the brightest smile came onto my face. I named you Bella. You were all mine. We were inseparable. You helped me so much baby. You helped me cope with my father issues and how he suddenly left. You were there for me. As an 8 year old little girl I didn't know how to talk about my feelings, but I didn't need to because you understood me. The day I got you I wouldn't put you down. I held you for hours. I felt an instant connection to you. I remember running around the house and playing hide n seek with you. I would throw the toy and you would go get it, then notice I was hiding, and went to find me. When you found me you would bark to let me know you saw me. It was our little game. You were the fastest little pup ever. I would take you everywhere..to the bathroom to brush my teeth, downstairs if my mom asked me to get something, Bella, we were attached at the hip. There was no Monika without Bella. I would put pretty dresses on you and play with your hair and put pigtails in. I'm not sure you really liked it but you would let me do it to just see the smile it brought me. You gave me kisses all the time, the same way I would give you kisses all the time. We did everything together. You understood me in a way nobody else did. You didn't care if I had a bad day, or if I got a B on a test, or if I was crying, you would always come and love me unconditionally. Growing up you were my only friend. You would always be in my room and we would just hang out together. We watched scary movies together. I hugged you always. I never have loved so much the way that I love you. You were there for me after my traumatic experience. You loved me no matter what. You were the reason I got through so much. Bella, you saved my life. The night that I was laying on the bathroom floor, sobbing my heart out, feeling so hopeless, I heard your little paws scratch the door to open it and you came to lay your head on my lap and crawl up next to me, you looked at me and I knew I couldn't leave you. I promised myself to stay here for you. I was holding on for you. I know you needed me the way I needed you. I miss you so much sweetheart. I cannot understand how you were happy, healthy, jumping around and we were playing with your toys that Sunday morning, and then the next day you were gone. Oh honey, I'm so honored that you waited until you were in my arms to take your last breath. You held on and waited just for me. I sat in the passenger seat, holding your body, kissing you all over your face and nose as Mom was driving and rushing to the vet. I didn't let go of you for 2 hours. I held you the whole time baby. I couldn't let go of you. I knew you were gone but I just couldn't let go. I kept giving you kisses, telling you how thankful I am for you, how you saved my life. You are my best friend Bella. Thank you for everything my sweet girl. This life without you is horrible, I wish I could hold you just one more time. This was so unexpected. We took you to the vet a couple months ago for a check up and they said that you were the healthiest 11 year old dog they have ever seen and that I was doing such a good job taking care of you. I miss you Bella. I wish you were here. You were supposed to move with me into my new apartment in a week. I love you forever Bella, always. I am forever thankful for you my sweetie and I'm forever grateful I was your person, best friend and soulmate. Thank you for making me the happiest person, thank you for saving me Bella. I love you bunches my baby, forever and always.

1/13/2022 - I miss you so much baby. I keep thinking about you all day everyday. It doesn't get easier. My heart feels empty. I miss coming home and hearing your little paws run down our steps to come greet me and jump up to be held. I miss opening a snack and seeing you run to me because you were ready to beg for it. Today before I left the house I changed your water bowl. I forgot you weren't here with me. After I realized I broke down. I went to the doctor today Bella, I'm sure you already know that since you're watching down on me. I got medication to give me more serotonin, but I'm not ready to take it yet. You were my serotonin Bella. You helped me get through depressive episodes and horrible panic attacks. I miss you more than words can describe. I can't stop thinking about how you were taken away from me just like that, no signs, nothing. You were perfectly healthy and gone the next second, I cannot understand and I'm going crazy to try to find an explanation as to why you left me so suddenly. I know you didn't want to go baby, I know. I would do anything to have you back, to hold you one more time, to feel your kisses and hear your little barks. I love you my Bella, my sweet girl. Mommy misses you so much, I'll be writing here to you, even though I constantly talk to you. I love you honey.

1/16/22- I just woke up, it's 8am and I miss you. I love you so much honey. I keep crying everyday, wishing you were here to lick my tears away and make me laugh. You always cheered me up. I'm not ready to come home today and not see you jump up on me and get excited to see me. I miss you so much Bella, this is the worst pain and I just want you here with me. My birthday is coming up and all I want is you :(

1/16/22- Hi honey, I came home a couple hours ago and I broke down into tears when I realized you weren't here to greet me at the door and have the zoomies to see me. I miss you sweetheart. Thank you for creating a beautiful sunset last night. I know that was you, we used to chase sunsets together. The house is so empty without you my sweetie. I love you always my sweetheart.

1/24/22- Hi baby bella, i miss you dearly. i moved into my new apartment and it was very difficult. you were supposed to move in with me, that was our plan. it's so difficult going into the lobby and seeing others with their pets. i really wish that was us. everyday is so hard without you. why did you have to leave me so early? it's not fair. i planned the next 5 years of my life with you in it. i would look for pet friendly apartments so you could come move with me. i miss you so much bella, i just want to hold you again please. i miss you more than life. i love you.

1/31/22- Hi my sweetheart. My birthday was two days ago and I haven't cried this hard on my birthday ever. I missed you so much. I missed blowing out my candles with you. All day I couldnt stop thinking about you, honey. On friday night a dog ran to me in the hallway and once it was just stephen and I, I started crying so hard. I miss you so much Bella, words cant even explain the amount of pain im continuously in. I miss you so much it hurts so bad. I wish I could bring you back, I wanted this life for us more than anything. I was so excited to have you with me in the new apartment. I cant grasp the fact that I will never be able to hold and kiss your head again. Its 3 weeks without you and im still so angry, theres nothing more in this entire life i want more than you with me. i love you honey, always and forever.
