When I was around seven a therapist suggested to my parents that they get me a dog to use as a unofficial therapy pet.
So they went out and got Bella.
After the first meeting me and Bella clicked together, we were always together, and still are. She comforted me when I was depressed and panicked, she let me hold her for hours if I needed to.
She continues to be their for me through tough times, she cuddles up to when I’m sad. She acts funny to get a laugh out of me.
She has always been their for me and I hope that she will continue to be their for me for a long time.
