Remembrance Day 2011: This video scrapbook memory was originally very long (and still is!) because I would brush my Golden Retriever Bello (a rescue) very well and he enjoyed being brushed so much it was always such a bonding experience. He also would get a tummy/chest massage and he would sometimes fall asleep. Not videoed here, but he got very excited and happy to have his ears cleaned and teeth brushed! He really enjoyed it! He sadly was diagnosed with inoperable cancer and I devastated. Little did I know that his time to go to Rainbow Bridge would arrive only 11 days after this video was taken. He had been fairly comfortable, happily eating, wanting doggy treats galore (the vet said to give him all the treats he wanted), eager to go for walks, but swiftly in a matter of hours on his final morning Nov.22/11, he displayed problems and I knew I had to make that heartbreaking decision to bring him to the vet. Even though with this sudden decline, he still wanted to eat; he had some salmon, a bit of cheese, plus his regular prescription food warmed up which he loved, and his favorite treats. At the vet, he also had some treats and bit of cheese. As he passed over to Rainbow Bridge, his head rested on my lap. He looked so peaceful and beautiful and I cried my eyes out. My friend who gave me support and was with me, said even the vet wiped away some tears. I love and miss Bello so much, words cannot describe. I am so grateful that he was mine. He taught me to be brave for him throughout his illness. By his own example of still enjoying life and being brave, I tried to be brave for him and be upbeat. He had comfort care and displayed a fairly good quality of life just up until the end, and even then he was still dignified, beautiful, and loving. He was my serene, funny, dorky, angelic best friend, and I shall never forget him. I realize my video memories and commentaries are repetitive, but I can't help it. He gave me such unconditional love. If more people were like the nonjudgmental, loving, and ever vigilant dog, the world would be a better place. I'll always remember you Bello (and all my furbabies), and keep your memory bright and alive within my heart.
