In Bella's Dash by Jo Dibblee, you will also read about many more rescue dogs that find their forever homes with people who love them, as well as Bella's story. There are many different breeds or mixed breeds in different sizes, but to their people owners, each dog helps their people as much as they have been helped themselves. The story of Bella is one that tells of more than a rescue dog; the story of Jo and her husband Michael and their rescuing Bella, which later turns into Bella rescuing them. As a dog lover, you are in for a sweet, loving journey that will have you laughing at times and sadly crying the next.
I thoroughly enjoyed every page of Jo Dibblee's story of rescuing Bella, as she tells of how Bella ends up rescuing her and Michael during the dark times of their PTSD and ASD. Bella was one special furry friend who truly sprinkled a 'dash' of herself everywhere she went. I like what Dibblee says: 'that Bella met us where we were, and took us someplace new.' As I read Jo Dibblee's story of Bella, it is so much like our stories with our own fur babies. I enjoyed hearing her talk about Bella and how she was so much a part of their lives, and especially the way Bella knew when they were hurting and would comfort them. It was a joy seeing how they all bonded so closely together. This is such a sweet story. If you love dogs, I encourage you to read Bella's Dash. It is definitely a book that will give you a better understanding of dogs and their owners. It is one you will think about for a long time.
