The touching story of Bella, a dog diagnosed with cancer that is living each day to the fullest

The moving story of Robert Kugler and his dog named Bella started in May 2015 when she was diagnosed with bone cancer; the veterinarian told Robert that Bella’s leg had to be amputated because she was in too much pain. After the surgery, Bella was given 3 to 6 months to live, so Robert decided that he would make those last months as exciting as possible.

That was how Robert and Bella began their journey, visiting different places around the United States including Boston, Chicago, Savannah, Texas, and Nashville. Love can do miracles and Bella is the best example, 14 months after her unfortunate diagnosis she is still traveling around the country.

Dogs were the first domesticated animal that developed a close relationship with humans. According to Colin Groves of the Australian National University, "The human-dog relationship amounts to a very long lasting symbiosis. Dogs acted as human's alarm systems, trackers, and hunting aides, garbage disposal facilities, hot water bottles, and children's guardians and playmates. Humans provided dogs with food and security.”
