Our dear friend Bella went to the rainbow bridge yesterday. She was a beautiful dog inside and out - a Dalmation/Labrador cross, the niece of my old boy Bones. She was one of four puppies that we brought from my sister's place in rural France, and rehomed here in Germany. She was best friends with her uncles Billy and in particular with Bones. She had a lovely, long life, and reached the grand old age of sixteen. We went to say goodbye to her yesterday; gave her treats and Poppy gave her a little kiss goodbye. I will miss her. Run free, lovely girl.
