Our sweet, kind, and passive dog Belle died a week ago. I wanted to post some pictures in rememberance of her. She really was one of the best puppies, but she had some quirks. Some endearing, and some annoying. For the first few years of her life she was extremly energetic. I had NEVER seen a dog run that fast. She was very cuddly. She would find anyone's legs appealing, and back her butt right up to them, and lean all her weight on you. Belle was such a picky eater. She rarely cleaned up the mess on the floor after a meal. And with four little kids, this was something I wished she would have done. But on that same picky note, she never got into the kids toys, shoes, or anything else that was laying around. Belle was so obedient, and listened very well. She was always tolerant of the kids, and well behaved. She was the perfect family dog. We miss her very much. These are pictures of us saying goodbye to her.

Sadness!!! She was such a sweetheart. Was she ill?

On Thanksgiving she suddenly collapsed. Couldn't walk, wouldn't eat or drink. We took care of her for five days, hoping she would come out of it, but the Vet thought it was something neurolgical, and she wouldn't come out of it.
