Bella
7/1/2009 - 2/17/2020My Bella’s life:
Bella, aka Bellita, Mama, Princessa, Girlie, born on July 1, 2009 in Iowa, passed away in her loving home on February 17, 2020, in Massachusetts after suffering from kidney failure. She resided in Massachusetts from 1 month old until her passing. She was 10 years, 7 months, 17 days, 93,192 hours, 5,591,520 minutes, 335,491,200 seconds old.

Bella’s life involved trash picking (if Mom or Dad didnt instantly put the trash outside), food sniffing, attention demanding, and kissing when she was not barking to get picked up/get food/go outside, or growling to tell us to pick her up/give her food/get her outside, or walking around the house in search of food. She loved Belo, food (all kinds), cuddles, kissing, and being held. In her later years she lost her sight and that did not stop her in anyway from being who she was. She was the true definition of a female dog. She was a Mom to 3 beautiful pups, 2 girls and 1 special little boy who looks just like his Momma - Lilly, Buster, and Lully. She was a strong little (but big in her mind) female dog whom defended herself against any fresh boy who’d try to sniff her behind. She would easily put any doggie in their place, no matter the size, if she did not like the vibe they were bringing into her space. She was courageous, caring, loving, super super smart, and the head of the household she was a part of.

She leaves behind her Husband/Partner-in-crime/Companion-who-was-with-her-every-day-of-her-life-with-the-exception-of-hospital-overnight-stays, Belo. Her beautiful kids, Lilly, Buster, and Lully whom all survived her to keep a little piece of her alive. She was (and will always be) loved by many, including her companion Belo (who misses her a lot) and kids, her Mom and Dad, Grandparents, Aunts, all family, and family friends who got to hear Mom tell stories about her whenever she did funny things (which was...quite often).

Her funeral and memorial services were held on February 17, 2020, at her current residence in Massachusetts. Coincidentally it was Presidents Day and what an honorable and fitting day for a doggie who ran the house and told us all what to do to go to doggie heaven ♥️

A little message for her:
Dear Bella - I love you so much. You have taken a piece of my heart with you, and I will always meet you there. Until we meet again my feisty, fighting, strong, intelligent, funny, more than a dog, best friend. Thank you for the funny memories. Thank you for the dances. Thank you for keeping me on my toes. Thank you for teaching me how to love, how to enjoy the little present moments, how to be present. Thank you for giving me a reason to wake up every morning. Thank you for giving me purpose. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for choosing me. Thank you for everything! May God hold you in the palm of his hands... UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!

“May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

I love you very much Bella. Thank you for being the loving and feisty doggy that you are. For those days we spend at the park, walking and strolling around. To the days I would spend at ur moms house and have you laying by my side, chilling. I loved watching you not give up on figuring your way around your house after you lost sight. Thank you for being by my side, near and far, watching me grow. I miss you very very much but I know that you're somewhere peaceful doing your favorite things and hopefully we'll meet again, in a place you're running and jumping. I miss you very much my tater tot.adriana inacio - February 25, 2020
