This post is a little bittersweet because shortly after this session, Bella (the sweet gal with the longest eyelashes ever) passed away. She had a wonderful life with her parents and sister, Millie.
Mille's parents got engaged on a trip to Italy and they knew they wanted to adopt a pup together! During their time in Italy, they got the idea to name their dog Bella. The following year they adopted Bella, a beautiful cocker spaniel. Three years after they adopted Bella, her parents decided that she needed a sister! They named her sister Mille, after an Italian car race called the Mille Miglia (to keep to the Italian names).
Her mom writes: "she LOVED to ride in the car! Her favorite place was in my lap. She had the sweetest spirit and only wanted to make us happy. I truly believe she was an angel on earth for a short time. She is missed so much by all of us (including Mille)."
The Allmand family decided to adopt a third puppy after they received Bella's terminal diagnosis. Their new girl is named Harper, and Harper and Mille are building a sweet friendship. Their parents hope that they will be lifelong companions for each other!
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Bella's celebration of life session.
