I disagree completely. I cannot begin to tell you the joy Bella gives me every single day I see her, even on the days when she decides to urinate indoors or get into the trash.
She won't be with us forever, but until the day she decides to leave us, we will show her the love that she deserves. It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Don't watch this video if you are not prepared to sob uncontrollably. It's a beautiful story, and it is a great reminder of how much a dog can positively impact your life.
"He showed me through his example how to love, and I loved him. I don't think I showed him how to love. I think he showed me how to love."
