Leonard’s Tweet reads:

Our baby Bella is gone to a better place now. 2/18/13 – 12/25/17. I’m not sure words could ever describe how much you meant to us. You were truly an amazing dog that brought us nothing but pure joy and happiness. We will love you forever Bella. RIP baby girl. ❤️

Just two weeks earlier, Leonard Tweeted a photo of the young dog as she checked off bucket list items before the inevitable happened:

To everyone who has reached out to Elle and I – Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers. Bella was truly an amazing dog that we will always remember. We were so lucky to have her in our lives. Thanks again everyone, it really means a lot.

Rest in peace Bella.

    what a shame to loose a beloved pet so young. Bella was very lucky to be loved as she was. It is what we wish for all dogs. I hope they will open their hearts to another dog in need as soon as they are ready.
