Love Like Bella
As many of you know, Bella has been a huge part of our lives.
This past week we lost Bella. It was not expected and sudden. Our hearts are broken.
I took time away from blogging, the workshop, social media, taking photos and taking showers…
much to Mike’s dismay! :/
Bella arrived in our home just as I was starting Country Design Style in April 2013. She quickly became my DIY buddy.
Trips to Home Depot rarely happened without Bella. Sounds of saws didn’t bother her.
When we returned home with our DIY supplies, she would find her spot on the jacuzzi top so she could watch over the workshop. If you’ve watched any of my Periscopes you know she loved the spotlight! If she wasn’t in the periscope, Bella was laying at my feet.
Bella except order in the house. Above she’s with Homer our 11 year old German Shepherd who I’ve never been able to train. For the first 8 years with Homer I tussled with him every time the dishwasher opened. He liked to “pre-rinse” the dishes. Bella trained him to stop within the first three weeks.
No “pre-rinsed” dishes for us anymore!
Bella was pretty good with a hammer but messy with a paint brush.
Bella was tough as nails while while remaining a girly girl. Her ears remind me of pigtails.
Bella now lives deep in our hearts.
Thank you so very much for reading “Love like Bella.” This is one more step to healing.
Please tell me about your fur babies in comments below. I would enjoy reading about them.
