About a month ago I received a phone call from a puppy owner asking if I had any pups and I did not. Turns out a good friend of hers was looking for an adult. I thought about this(as I have in the past) and told her I had the sweetest adult dog who was also this ladies dog's mother. I went back and forth and shed many tears making this decision but knew it would be a good one for Bella. We always had to watch Bella and Livvy as they were not very fond of each other. We tried a 2 week trial and it was a win-win situation for all of us as they have a wonderful adult dog and we get her to visit anytime we want plus when they go on vacations and out of town work travels Bella gets to visit us too. Or if we want her to visit they are more than happy to let her.

Bella took only 3 days before she figured out she wanted to sleep in the chair next to the woman's bed. She has a 7 year old and 16 year old to play with and all the attention she deserves. She also goes to work with the woman just like she did with me. The husband is a Professor and is home much of the time. They are very active and love to be outdoors. Bella truly deserves such a life:) Because she is a wanderer we could never let her outside to explore but now she has people who love the outdoors taking her with them because they want to be outside. She hasn't gotten to go cross country skiing with her daughter yet but I am sure she will love it. Life changes but I believe this is a good change for Bella! The smile on Bella's face shows it all. The day she walked in the 1st comment from the ladies husband was "she's smiling at me"...and she was! She continues to smile!!!!!

Yes, I am going to complain....the title scared me.  Don't do that again.

A difficult decision but it sounds like the perfect one for all involved.  I know you've said several times that the 2 girls did not get along.  Now she has kids and another dog she can play with and people who want to be outside and can give her all the wander time she wants.  And being able to see her when you want, to doggie sit when needed...that sure sounds like a win win to me.

Always a tough decision, but it sounds like a good one for everyone!  She seems very happy.

Ah, that must have been an incredibly difficult decision, but it sounds like it was the right one.   At least you still get to see her and it sounds like she will have a great life!    Have to say I was relieved to see what you wrote after seeing Bye Bye Bella in the title ;->

sounds like Bella will have a wonderful life with her new family :)   I know you will miss her, but how awesome to have her so close still, to be able to have visits and watch her when they are out of town!!

Those decisions are so hard to make, but it sounds good for everyone involved.

I can imagine how sad this was for you but sounds as if Bella is going to be very happy! You know you did the right thing but sometimes it is very hard.

:) I know it is really sad but now Bella is in a happy and stress-free home! I'm glad everything turned out great for her! Just stay strong! You did a wonderful thing :)
