Allentown, NJ (PRWEB) September 4, 2007
Allentown, NJ-based Internet canine pain relief & mobility company, BellasPainRelief.com, has announced the passing of their beloved Bella, the company's namesake & inspiration.
"With the help of Dr. Fjerstad of Foxmoor Animal Hospital & her assistant Erin, Bella was able to pass peacefully over to Rainbow Bridge while in her own bed, getting kisses from her mom and surrounded by those who loved her most," says Ronnie Daldos, Bella's mom and CEO of http://www.BellasPainRelief.com.
Bella was a tripod Great Dane, born in November 2003 with a stunted right forelimb. She was adopted by Ms. Daldos from an animal shelter in Massachusetts.
"At first they would not allow me to adopt her because I lived in NJ," says Ms. Daldos, "but Bella's foster mom Jane read my letter and just had a good feeling that I would take care of her".
As Bella grew, she had a number of orthopedic & neurological issues. She always pulled through the hard times because of all the wonderful veterinary specialists that worked hard to help her.
"Had it not been for the surgical skills of Dr. Jana Norris, I would never have had the last 3 years with Bella," says Ms. Daldos.
Because of Bella's hip dysplasia, canine arthritis and other orthopedic issues, she had to have hot & cold modalities applied to different areas of her body to provide relief to a painful joint or muscle.
"I was always rigging up a way to wrap the ice pack on her so it would stay in place," says Ms. Daldos. "Then I thought, wouldn't it be great if they came with a way to attach them."
Thus, the "Bella's Hot/Cold Pain Relief Pack", as well as the company BellasPainRelief.com was born.
"Bella has inspired so many people who have come in touch with her," says Ms. Daldos. "She loved to give kisses and never let her handicap slow her down".
Even the Bella logo has brought smiles to people's faces.
"A friend's mom had cancer and lost all her hair," says Ms. Daldos. "We gave her a Bella hat to cheer her up and she wears it all the time with her scarf. It's an ice breaker and it gives people something to talk about other than her illness. She even told us that Bella was more popular than the governor, because of everyone that has asked about her Bella hat! Knowing that Bella was loved by so many people really helps me through this most difficult time", says Ms. Daldos. "It has actually taken away my fear of death, knowing that she will be there waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge. Goodbye sweet Bella. You are gone, but never will you be forgotten. Rest in peace sweet baby girl."
