Bella Christy

Bella Christy

Age: 12 years

Breed: Golden Retriever

Status: Angel

Received Wings: September 2021

Beautiful Bella is indisputably the “belle of the ball” when she visits the Regal Palms in Largo.

“The retirement home’s ‘memory’ ward really perks up when we come in,” explains an elated Cathy, Bella’s beaming mom.

Bella, now 11 years young, was adopted from GRRMF in 2017, and together with her proud pet parents, Cathy and Marc, have been a caring and committed therapy team for the past two years.

“We also love going to colleges because Bella loves the energy from the students. The library at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg campus is one our favorites. We spread out a blanket on the floor and Bella lies down, then waits eagerly for the belly rubs she adores. She’ll even stretch out her paw as if to say, ‘don’t stop.’

As for this terrific team’s future plans?

“Being able to bring more joy and happiness into more people’s lives.”
