Goose and Belle Together Again

Hey All.

I know I said I would tell you the tail of all that muddy mischief Bert and I got into.  But my heart is heavy and I need to tell you that my Angel Brother Gooses gal pal Belle has crossed over The Rainbow Bridge. 
I know many of you knew Belle from the many many adventures Goose and Belle had over many years.  I was one blessed pup that when I came to my forever home, I was able to go on a few adventures with her and a few times she stayed at my house when her parents were out of town. 
Belle was just the sweetest, most beautiful friend a guy could have.  Beautiful Belle hiked more miles than any dog I know.  She even hiked King's Peak, that's over 13,500, it's the 7th highest peak in the US, and her parents will tell you that she hiked 3 times as many miles on that trail as they did as she traversed from the group ahead to the group behind.
Momma and I took a look back at all the wonderful times we had with Belle.  It was hard for momma to just select a few photos, especially when it came to ones with her and Goose, so please forgive us if there is more than a few photos but nowhere near the 1000's we have. 

This is the first time I met Belle.


Whenever Belle came to stay at my house she would always touch Gooses box with her nose and then lay on his old dog bed and look up at his box and picture.

The same trail she walked with Goose headed to Gooses Rock.

The Three Amigos, Goose, Belle and Bert. 


Run free Beautiful Belle.  I know your Goose welcomed you with open paws and is showing you all the best swimming holes and trails that heaven has to offer.  You will be missed dearly, but our memories of you will always make us smile.  A little piece of you will always be with me and my momma.  And thank you for giving a young pup like me a chance and for accepting me and for teaching me restraint and patience, and, well for loving me.



  1. Thanks for sharing the love!

  2. Sorry to hear bout your pal Belle.

  3. bro... my tears are running over my fur... I'm so sad that Belle had to go... but now she is with Goose and they are together furever...

  4. That picture of Belle looking up at Goose as she lovingly remembers him will always touch our hearts!

  6. What a touching tribute to the beautiful Belle! The photo of her gazing up at Goose's portrait brought tears to our mama's eyes. It's so meaningful. We're sure she and Goose are back together again.

  7. Oh no, we're so sorry to hear of Belle's passing! But I just know there was a big pawty at the Rainbow Bridge as Goose welcomed his gal pal there!

  8. Run free sweet Belle - you could not have been a better friend to Goose and Buddy.

  9. Miss Belle, We cherished every visit you had with us and are so glad as you run again you are able to do it with your pal and ours Goose.

  10. Oh, no - this is sad news indeed, though I am happy to think of Goose and Belle reunited at last. Godspeed, sweet Belle...

  11. We're so sorry to hear about Belle and are sending hugs to you, your momma and her family. She sure took you in and showed you lots of love and good times. We just know Goose and Belle are enjoying their reunion.

  12. Belle was such a special girl and such a wonderful friend. We are sorry that she had to keep an appointment at the Bridge but are sure there is much rejoicing over there.


  13. I feel so sad but you're right - Belle had an amazing life. I can tell that she accepted Buddy right from the start. What sweet photos of the two of them together. I also love how close she was to Goose... What a sweet girl. I hope that she and Goose are galloping and snuggling together now. I'm so very sorry for your loss and sadness.

  14. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next.
