This week has been a tough one for my hubby and I, because we had to put down our dear sweet Australian shephard, Bella today. She was a bossy girl, and at pool parties when she started hearding guests back to the patio area, she was known to nip a guests bootie if they did not respond appropriately to her gentle nudges.
Bella was 16 years old, and brought us a lot of joy during her years with us. She was full of mischief and life till the end. But she was in pain, and was having major difficulty getting up and walking due to her arthritis, hip displasia and other elderly dog health issues. There's been a lot of crying this week and especially today, but we know that she's in a better place now and no longer in pain.
Bella and our other dog Bubba always loved to go up to our cabin. They would run free with all the other "mountain dogs" that had become their buddies over the years. Funeral services will be at 10am tomorrow at our cabin in the woods,
