Rest in Peace Sweet Bella - Kansas City Dog Photography

You may remember learning about Bella, a Golden Retriever who was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer at the young age of 5. Bella recently lost her battle with this disease and is running free over the rainbow bridge now and no longer in pain. I was honored to have been the one chosen to document her innocent spirit and love with her beautiful family.

Lymphoma is one of the most common cancers seen in dogs. Although there are breeds that appear to be at increased risk for this disease, lymphoma can affect any dog of any breed at any age. It accounts for 10-20% of all cancers in dogs. Lymphoma is a malignant cancer that involves the lymphoid system. In a healthy animal, the lymphoid system is an important part of the body's immune system defense against infectious agents such as viruses and bacteria.

Here are some of my favorite memories from the photo shoot.






I know many of you may be skeptical, but I received a message from an animal communicator who saw Bella's photos and Bella had a message for her family: "Bella knows that she is dying and picture number 7 is how she wants her family to remember her. Bella is at peace, she has filled her soul contract." This is the photo she was referring to.
