And the First Day…

There she is. My Belle. Our Belle, I should say.

That’s her teddy bear that came with her, along with an assortment of other various toys and accoutrements! Mit is an angel. You probably know Mit by now… she is Belle’s foster Mum, and I’d never be sitting here with this beautiful collie girl if it were not for Mit Skinner. THANK YOU AGAIN, MY DEAR MIT, and of course thanks to Shawn for being a fabulous son and for helping your Mum out by doing a lot of the driving on this odyssey.

And that is all I have. For today. I am emotionally spent, as was Mit when she left here with Shawn, her son, and drove off “into the sunset,” so to speak, having delivered her precious cargo, Miss Belle Crowell, to her new home, far away from the corn fields of Iowa from where they first set out, only two days ago!

I love you Belle,

…now and always.
