Bella has passed on

For those of you who knew our German Short Hair Pointer, Bella I have sad news. While doing what she loved to do most, camping with mom (ok and me too), Bella succumbed to her long time battle with liver cancer.

Diagnosed a year ago, almost to the day, she had been given 6 weeks to 3 months to live. Bella refused to "be sick" and stayed playful and stoic as the months passed. I credit her will to live and Milk Thistle capsules for her beating the odds.

In the end, her system shut down quickly, giving us no option but to ease her passing while we were camping at the Balloon Rally in Albuquerque NM. She will be sorely missed.

Sorry for your loss. As Omahagirl said she has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. Losing a pet is never an easy thing to do. Just remember the good times and that will help you get through.
