Missing you everyday Belle, your spirit is always with me........love you Belle Belle. Every night when I come home, I wish yu were sitting in your chair, as I walked through the door I would say "Belle, Belle" and you would jump out of the chair to greet me. I would give you your food, and then we would sit in my chair for a while, I miss you so much. I try to focus on the wonderful memories, like when I first took you to my work at a long term care facility, you were only about 12 weeks old, you went with me every day for 8 years, you sat on all the residents laps, you so loved being there, and you became Marianwoods pet therapy dog, even the Issaquah Press came to the facility to interview me and take pictures of you. You were so loved by all the residents and staff, when you passed away I got so many notes from the persons that remembered you. You were a sweet and loving friend to me. I miss you so much Belle, Belle.|
July 18th.... I miss you so much Belle, I want to hug you and hold you,go for that small walk with you, I feel like it is a dream, and yet I see the empty chair, I still have your blanket and sweater on the chair, I pick it up and hug it, trying to smell your smell. Your spirit is with me, and I am with you, love you my Belle, Belle. I have received so many heart warming messages from friends who read my thoughts of you Belle, it is well known how sweet and dear you are to me Belle. Another day has gone by, another day to learn to live my life without you here, but your spirit remains strong , and you are here with me. Love you Belle.
August 13th... I write in my journal everyday, I miss my Belle, Toby and Annie. We never "get over"missing our pets, we just learn to live without them. It is very empty without them, it is a comfort to know they are with us in spirit, and are waiting for us at the Rainbow bridge. Love you Belle and Tby, and my daughter's dog Annie.
September 15th 2019....... It's your Birthday Belle, I miss you, Toby so much. It was a sad day for me, I finished your's and Toby's photo album and linked your collars together. You are 16!
