about 7 and a half years ago my brother Andrew brought down his puppy that he just brought with his shopping money. she was a heeler cross silky terrier. my brother named her Bella.

after a week my brother realised he didn’t have time for her so he asked my mum if she wanted her, my mum said yes, soon as we got Bella, Bella took a liking to me and she become my dog.

I loved her so much and she loved me back, If I ever went out she would wait by the front door or stare at the window into I came home.

One time I was in hospital for about a week and Bella stay at that front door only leaving to go the toilet, so my parents had to put her food, water and a bed there.

Sadly last july bella had to be taken to the vet she was looking really sad and looked abit sick.

when we got there they said she had a fast heart beat, high temp and a very sore tummy.

they told me it could be pyometra and they will need to get some x-rays.

when they got the results back they told me it was Pyometra and that it was bad, they said she can have a op to fix it but they said she may not make it though, and it would cost me and my partner $2000 or more for it.

I was heart broken because I knew we couldn’t afford it but we couldn’t keep her in all that pain so I had to do what was best for her and it broke me up inside.

she was the best dog anyone could ask for ill always remember her and when i have a baby and its a girl i will put Isabella for her middle name

R.I.P Bella <3
