Hello, Lady Belle Here,

You might recall my blog posts under the handle "Adventures of a Blind Doodle."  You will find my first blog post here.

If you don't feel like digging through all those posts, Here is the Cliff Notes version:

1.  I was born sighted but in the first year caught Blastomycoses, a fungal disease.  It cost me my eyesight.

2.  When my owners found I was blind, they turned me into a shelter.

3.  I was placed then returned two more times.

4.  Finally, a mobile vet found me on the kill line and took me home to join her pack.

5.  Once I was over the trauma of being blind and rejected she placed me for adoption through everyone's favorite Doodle rescue site, where I came to the attention of a lot of big hearted DoodleKissers who were pulling for me to find a furever home.

6.  Their wishes were granted when my new 'seeing eye person' (his term, not mine) adopted me.

7.  It was like going to heaven.  I have a home to roam, a dog yard all my own, and I get taken for daily walks, the most important thing in my life.  A number of blog posts followed.  Then i got distracted by life and stopped posting - my apologies.

Last September my Blasto came back and really knocked me down.  But with good drugs and lots of love, I came back.  But apparently the second bout with Blasto damaged some of my inside parts.  About 2 months ago I lost my appetite and started losing weight.  I spent a weekend in a vet hospital.  They thought the Blasto had come back again and started treatment.  Then a week later the test came back and the problem wasn't Blasto, it was far more serious.

Today my morning walk was limited to the driveway.  I just couldn't go any further.  We did a vet visit today.  They spent some time with an ultrasound.  Lots of fluid in my abdomen and around my heart.  My temperature had spiked.  I heard the Vet say were not sure what is wrong, but I'm so skinny and weak, there is little likelihood I can come back.

They brought me into a room with my 'Seeing Eye Person'  He held my head, scratched my neck and told me how much he loved me and what a good girl I am.  Then a squirt from a needle and I went into a permanent sleep.

Well it isn't really permanent.  You see, I'm in doggie heaven.  Guess what?  My strength is back.  And wonder of all wonders I can see again. No more running into things.  

But I am going to miss my people and all of you kind loving DoodleKissers.  Keep up the good work.  You made a difference in this girl's life!

Dear Belle, I am happy you found someone to love you unconditionally, a perfect gift to you, as I'm sure you were to them. I know your people will miss you terribly and I am so sorry for their loss. Run free sweet girl.

Dearest Belle,

     You had a rough start in life with those who weren't really committed to you, but the mobile vet saw the real you and helped others see it also.  When you were put up for adoption and Thomas and Chari found you, your world was complete.  We are so glad your last years were loving and happy.  Doggy lives area just too short, but Thomas and Chari realized when it was time for you to cross the rainbow bridge.  Now you are forever free, running in flower filled meadows.

                     Ned, Clancy, and Charlie.

Tears are falling.  So sorry for your loss.  Lady Belle was lucky to have found such a wonderful home.  Now she is pain free and running across the Rainbow Bridge.

Goodbye sweet girl.  You had rough start but found a good home and good people to take care of you and love you.  Have fun and run in doggie heaven now!

So sorry to hear the news about Lady Belle. She was a special dog and you gave her a special home. She's now running and playing over the Rainbow Bridge and one day you guys will meet again. Hugs to you.
