Happy Birthday Little Belle and Irene! I can’t tell you how much I’ve loved following you on your adventures with your Mom and brothers and sisters. Whenever I was going through difficult times I’d pop on your page and you’d make me smile, laugh, and cry. My heart breaks knowing that your mom is missing you so much. You went through so much in the first 12 years of your life but you kept going with your strength, zest for life and warrior spirit–that’s an inspiration and lesson on life for us all. I’ve lost a few of my babies and the hurt and sorrow is so deep. I have my own “Little Belle” at home–Beau. He spent the first year of his life in a car with 7 other dogs until I rescued him. He’s now 13 and struggling with his age. I look at you and tell him “you can do this”. You never lost your love of life, you could see that, all the way to the end. You were truly “magical”! Sleep well my beautiful Little Belle…I miss you.
