This blog post is the hardest post ever!! Sharing that my darling Miss Bella has crossed over the rainbow bridge.

My heart is absolutely broken and I’m struggling to work or do anything but cry. I’ve tried to make this post blog since Saturday!!

I mentioned on my last live video that Bella has cushings disease and kidney and liver (and gall bladder) issues. They put her on meds but the meds were making her sicker. I’m going to share the full story of last week here because I won’t be able to talk about it without sobbing.

Dave and I left for Orlando on Sunday (Feb 11th) and flew to Aruba on Monday (Feb 12th). We were there for 3 nights and had to come home early. Bella wasn’t doing well. Brooke stopped giving her the meds as they were making her worse. Based on her blood work, her kidneys were failing and it was only going to get worse. In the past month her health deteriorated so much…she stopped coming downstairs to work with me, stopped eating food. I’ve said for years that Bella loved food the most and then me 🙂 For her not to eat…something was really wrong. I wish I had one more day to pamper her and show her my love but after looking over all our photos and videos the past three days… she knew how much I loved her.

Before I made this post I wanted to create a nice video and a photo collage. But, it’s so painful right now. I will work on it as time allows and post it when I can.

Miss Bella was:

  • a Cavachon (half King Charles Cavalier and half Bichon Frise)
  • 12-1/2 years old
  • Born September 7th, 2011 and passed February 17, 2024
  • Bella and Friends Stamp Set was designed for my one Million in Sales
  • Shown on the Weather Channel when Dave was shoveling snow
  • She was the kindest dog and wouldn’t hurt a flea
  • Her hair was so incredibly soft
  • Had the longest eyelashes
  • We had so many nicknames for her – Bella Roo, Roo Roo, Tatonka (buffalo), Hufflalump, Bellafonza, Misses Fantail (her tail waved like a fan).

My iPhone created this collage of photos and I didn’t have to anything but upload it.

On Sunday I made a blanket for her so that we can bury her in our back yard with Gizmo. I decided to use the same flowers in some of my previous quilts since I have pictures of her on them.

The picture below was taken in July of last year (2023).

Rest in peace my darling Miss Bella…I will miss you forever!!

I’m supposed to go live tonight and make a project. I will try my best to make something today and go live tonight…but, I’m not making any promises. I will post on my Chic n Scratch Facebook page later today if I plan on going live.
