Wink



{ photo taken April 20, 2012 }

Remember this pretty girl?
That's our baby, Belle.
Well, not really a baby. She's 10 years old, which technically
makes her an old gal.
I can relate.

This past Thanksgiving, Belle lost her right eye in a tragic
scuffle with our other pup.




Ouch.

He is happily reunited with his former owners,
and our old girl Belle is carrying on as if
nothing ever happened.
Ahhh, to only be that resilient myself.

She is forever smiling and winking at us,
which serves as a constant reminder not to
sweat the small stuff.
News Flash: Ultimately, it's all small stuff.

Hug your fur babies today. :-)

I remember when that happened. So sad, isn't it? Life is just such a series of little tragedies sometimes, isn't it? xo Diana

She's a lucky girl, isn't she, to live in a family that takes good care of her. Looking good.

So glad sweet Belle is still enjoying her life to the fullest! We should all aspire to be like our dogs I think!

Anne,

I am so happy to read that Belle has healed. I had an adventure this weekend that if not for my little Rat Terrier Scout, I would have ended up in a hospital.

I love your fur baby. A big hug from me too. I have three fur babies and I'm leaving them for two months while I go to Europe. My two human babies (young adults) will be looking after them for me, but I am going to miss them SOOOO much.

Why is that so hard to remember sometimes?! It really is small stuff, isn't it?

Jemsmom said...

Beautiful Belle! She is such a trooper and I know she brings so much joy to your life. You are right about sweating the small stuff. I needed that today! Thank you!

O'Melly said...

animals are so resiliant! My cousin's retriever had to have a front leg amputated from cancer, and he was still just as fast in the parkchasing balls with only three legs!

Bliss said...

Awww, and her eye IS smiling. We found a cat in a parking lot when I was a kid that was missing a leg and an eye, and that was the best darn cat ever!

Lululiz said...

I remember reading your post when it happened and crying buckets. And then I went and hugged my two fur babies for ages. Belle is beautiful and always will be and her wonderful character shines through her one eye just as well as it did through two.

Shingle Cottage said...

Love Krissie x

Sue said...

I love that these furry family members are keep giving us unconditional love! I just lost my old girl, but she was 14 and lived such a full life! But wow, it's not quite the same around here without her.

Take care,
Sue

Sharon said...

Hi Anne,

So glad it's not holding her back. So sorry it happened. We can all take lessons from our beloved fur babies...life goes on and doesn't slow down.

We love and adore our doggies.

You've brought tears to my eyes with Bear's story. What a gorgeous dog and a good reminder that most things are little things when we get them in perspective. Happy to give my fur babies a special hug in honour of you and Bear :)

I always hug my fur baby. He can' get away fast enough. He's a very independent kitty during the day, but always ends up laying on me at night.

scrybil said...

Oh my... I somehow hopped over to your blog today (I can't even remember how... maybe a Pinterest image or something). How timely... I just brought home a rescue Husky and we are having some issues with her and our older Husky girl (herself a rescue). We are trying to work through their issues with them and are hoping for good results, but the photos of your sweet Belle break my heart. Have already had my sweet Shiner at the vet for an eye injury. This new girl is our fourth Husky and the first one we've ever had any issues with. Your story reminds me that we need to be so very careful. I'm so happy for you that Belle is recovering. She is a beautiful girl!

Husky Hugs to you all... Sonja

Lori Anderson said...

Oh poor puppy! He looks like such a sweetheart.

BTW, your blog header is GORGEOUS!

Reenie said...

So good to hear an update...and hope the other pup is doing well also. :)

Susan said...

INDEED...we all NEED to remember it is all small stuff!

Animals and children...very resilient!
we had a kitty that got scratched by his brother right down the center of his eyeball. he lost his sight, but the doc said the slit would heal (and it did)...up close it only looked a little different but in photos, it didn't have that "retinal glow" like the other eye.
he is gone now ::sigh:: like so many of my fur babies.
My "pretty" kitty gets hugged a lot, and the 2 grand-fur babies (cat and dog)

Awesome post, thanks for sharing the pics...I have asked often about belle, as you might remember :)
love and hugs to all of you,
Susan

Linda said...

So happy to hear she is doing well. The lessons our fur friends give us are so very simple, true, complete. Why is it so hard to follow them?!
