Bella and Chloe

Well, kids, I have some sad news and some good news. Here is Steph with Baby Bella, who was the runt of the litter, and who was battling pneumonia the last week and a half. Steph had her back and forth to the vet's, and was hoping she would fight it off, but the other day, she was suffering so much, the vet said she wasn't strong enough to fight it, and they euthanized this poor little mite, to stop her suffering. She had stopped eating and was struggling for every breath. Just too little.

Already saying goodbye. Dear little face.

Steph was devastated, of course and is still very sad as she loved the little pup so much.
But she also says Bella isnt suffering now, and she has accepted it.

Bella and Chloe, two sisters

You can see the difference in size and strength.

So this is Bella's sister who fortunately had not yet been claimed.
Steph decided there was no way, after loving and losing her puppy so fast,
that she could go home with no puppy. And she said Chloe is the closest thing to Bella, and a part of her.
So in a couple of weeks, Chloe will go home with her to meet her big brothers, Chase and Sanchez.

I already loved little Bella, and am saddened by her loss. But we will love Chloe too,
and she is strong and full of beans. Puppies bring nothing but joy.


  1. It is hard to lose a pet..young or old. My heart goes out to her. I had a very loved cat named Oliver and he was very old but when he had a seizure I knew and had to let him go. I love the photos of them. They are precious.

  2. Sorry to hear you lost your sweet little sister, but I'm sure the vet was right. Glad you are adopting again, for Steph's sake as well as your own. What would we do without our pets? And pugs... well, they are a breed unto themselves. Love the snorty little guys! Amy

  3. What a sweet little thing. It breaks my heart that she didn't make it, but it sounded like it just wasn't meant to be.

  4. Difficult it is but take heart. Her sweet memory lives on. She is in our hearts.

  5. Oh, Sherry...I'm so sorry to hear about wee Bella! Stephanie will indeed be heartbroken, even as she appreciates that Bella is no longer in pain. So glad Chloe is going home with her...will help her heart heal a little. Puppies do bring boundless love into our lives...


I so appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
