My sweet Bella. . .you were my special angel here on earth and we miss you so very much.  Although our time here was cut way too short, please know that you will never be forgotten. I picked YOU as my special angel because you were "the one" over all the rest.  We miss you more than words can say and hope you knew how much you were loved. 
Love, Mommie & Lucy

Please join us in lighting a candle, wherever you might be on Monday, to honor Bella on Monday, September 29 at 7PM Pacific time.
Bella, you are free from pain and suffering now...and I'm sure Diva is showing you the ropes!   You may have been mistreated
and unloved at one time in your life, but you were adopted by
your mom, Jane, who loved you unconditionally.  We will never
forget your impact on us personally and on CBR.  You changed us forever.  Jane, you know our hearts are with you and that we are here for you...always.

Giani, Cher, Pippin & Strider

Our hearts go out to you Jane, during this incredibly difficult time.  Always remember all the wonderful times you had with Bella, and the amazing home you gave her.  She was loved by so many, and CBR's Miss October!  Godspeed sweet Bella, soar with the angels......
Rick & Mary Garland

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jane. You were such a wonderful
mom to Bella, thanks for keeping her safe and loving her.
Amy, Boomer, and Belle

My heart is just breaking for you and Bella.  We (Harmony and I) are so sorry to hear about her passing and the rough time she has had this last month.  I know she running with the angles and the other beagles now, with not a care in the world, at the Rainbow Bridge.  Please know that you both are in our thoughts and prayers.
Claudia & Harmony

Jane, our hearts are with you at this time. I
can't even imagine how you are feeling with the shock of it all. I
don't know what I would do without my Charlie bear. They are
definitely a special family of beagles which had
endured plenty in their little lifetime.
We will surely miss seeing Bella at Barktoberfest. It was also so
wonderful seeing those beagles together and how
they remembered each other.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
Our hearts go out to you & Bella.
With great sadness,
Sheri & Mark Holan
Sending prayers for you, Jane. I'm so sorry for her loss. I can't even imagine how devestated you are feeling. {{{hugs}}} jackie

Jane,I don’t know where to begin.  Bella was the poster girl for those who are so badly abused, yet are given a second chance at love
and life thanks to wonderful people like YOU!  Bella will always be in my heart—after all, we spent so much late “night-shift” time together she, Susan, and I, after her puppies were born!  I know in my heart that Bella trusted Susan and I, but laughed hysterically nonetheless when she showed Susan exactly what she thought of us (her?) by piddling on Susan’s sleeping bag. Please know that I cry with you because you lost your lovely Bella-rina, Laugh with you at the memory of Bella’s antics, and Hold you close so that you can heal and find solace in the fact that Bella is soaring with the angels.
Much love to you and Lucy,
Michelle and the Dodgson Beagles (Bailey, Buster, Baxter, and Belle)

Bella, I was lucky enough to meet you and your Mom Jane, at Barktoberfest in 2007.  You couldn't have been sweeter or more loved. 
Godspeed Good Girl.  And wait for you Mom at the Bridge. 
Hugs, Gail, Josie and Oliver

Bella -
I remember getting an e-mail from your mom telling us
how to recognize you at the Barktoberfest costume party.
"Just look for the cutest beagle there." she said.
And indeed you were.
You beagles just don't realize how much you give us, how seeing you brings a smile to our faces, how very, very special you are and how our hearts break when you leave this earth.
Len, Susan and Elizabeth
It's a beautiful memorial.  I am so sorry for your loss.  Sometimes I am just in awe by the amount of loss and pain we can feel when it is time for our furry friends to leave us.  Just know that you are not alone...

Bella's pictures remind me *so much* of Leo.... I'm *sure* they have found eachother in Doggie Heaven, and are enjoying a
10 piece Chicken McNugget together.

Jane – The following was recently posted on our local Pets Forum:

"Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named
Belker.  The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very
attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.  I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.  I told the family we couldn't do anything more for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure.  The felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.  The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him.  Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.  Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.  The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion.  We sat together for a while after Belker's death wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.  Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."  Startled, we all turned to him.  What came out of his mouth next stunned me.  I've never heard a more comforting explanation.  He said, "People are born so they can learn how to live a good life--like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"  The six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to you. I know my beloved
Thurston Howl IV, who always had an eye for the lovely ladies,
has made a special point of welcoming your
beautiful Bella at the Bridge (he ever was the gentleman, I promise).

We are so sorry to hear about Bella I know how devastating and 
shocking this is for you. No words will make her unexpected departure 
better, nothing can do that. Just know she is always with you and 
that you made her  life wonderful with all your love and caring. Our 
thoughts and deepest sympathy are with you.
