"Bella" My Beautiful Beagle

by Laura
(Washington)

Before I met you, I was grieving so badly over the loss of my first beagle. A friend suggested I look for a rescue dog. I was stubborn and sure that I would never find a dog to heal my broken heart. But God is gracious and you were waiting for me in the doggy foster care. You were scared not trusting, and so was I. But home with me you went.

I was blessed to have you almost twelve years. I learned more from you in those twelve years than I have my whole life. I am only able to get through your passing, knowing that I was able to save and love you the best I possibly could.

Rest in peace, sweet Bell.

Who Really Rescues Who?
by: Ed

I'm so sorry for your loss.

It was one year ago this month that I lost my beloved Co Co. She was a rescue also that I adopted after losing my Mini Schnauzer Fritz after almost 15 years.

Fritz was my buddy and lived a good, long life.

I too went to the shelter looking and there was Co Co, Border Collie / Aussie Shepherd mix who'd had a difficult past.

Co Co was special just like your Bella. Sadly she and I only had 2 years together as she fell victim to a batch of tainted dog treats manufactured in China. If only I'd known. :(

I miss her terribly, but looking back, I've come to realize that it wasn't I who rescued Co Co, it was she who rescued me.

Rescues are very very special. I don't think anyone really knows how much until their lives have been blessed by one.

May your Bella find peace, and may God heal your aching heart.
