You have taught so many of us that love is the most powerful force of all. With love, even the most horrific memories and pain can be erased. Irene helped teach you that you could trust again, that her love would always be there for you. Together, the two of you have shown the world that it is never too late to start over, that we can survive the bad things, that we can overcome our obstacles and find a new happiness and contentment, as long as we open our hearts.
I’m so glad that you had Irene these last years of your life. And I’m so thankful that Irene shared your journey together with the rest of the world. We miss you, Little Belle. Happy birthday to you in heaven, and happy birthday to Irene, who misses you so much.
I never had the privilege to meet you Little Belle, but I take much comfort in knowing that now that you have found your angel wings, you are also restored to full health and vitality. When you see Irene again, you will actually see her and I know it will be the best feeling for you both. Until then, run, frolic, and revel in that eternal sunshine.
PS: This is my favorite photo of you…look at you! Queen of the Dunes!

You can see an overview of the donations and costs on the fund page. . There were more costs the last few months because of my health, they could be paid with also the donations that were left from the last update, but as you can see there is not much left in the Fund at the moment. So next times, we probably have to pay my special food and medical expenses from my private account. I want all my wonderful donors to know that Irene and I are forever grateful for the amazing amount of donations made to my Magic Fund. I could never imagine that one day I would have such beautiful friends all over the world who are willing to help me. It touches us deeply…❤️ . And it warms my heart that together we are also able to help other animals in need with again a wonderful donation to Bianca, the organization in Portugal that saved me. . If you have any questions about the fund, please feel free to contact me. . With a very happy smile and a grateful heart, we thank you!❤️ . @littlebelle1 > littlebelle.org >Fundraising > Little Belle's Magic Fund . https://gogetfunding.com/little-belles-magic-fund/ . . #ilovelittlebelle #blinddog #seniordog #rescuedog #puppymillrescue #puppymillsurvivor #fundraising #donations #thankyousomuch #thankyoufriends</a></p> <p style=” color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;”>A post shared by Little Belle (@littlebelle1) on <time style=” font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;” datetime=”2016-12-06T19:31:06+00:00″>Dec 6, 2016 at 11:31am PST</time></p></div></blockquote> //platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js
