Happy birthday to both of you. I have truly enjoyed following your journey with Little Belle and have been so deeply touched by your love for each other. Having two rescue dogs myself, I have seen first hand what some animals endure at the hands of some humans. I remain totally in awe of a dog’s ability to heal and learn to trust again. This is what I saw between you and Little Belle – she had such a rough start in life, but that path brought her to you. With you she experienced the unconditional love she was so lacking, and so deserved. To me, it looks like you brought out the best in each other!! While I know this is a difficult time for you, know that she has touched the lives of her fan club, from literally all over the world. She has left a wonderful legacy, and she will not be forgotten.
