I'm very sorry for your loss, Blue. I know how hard it is to lose such a close friend as Hudson and you have my deepest sympathies.
I tend think that these things happen like this for a reason and now Belle and Hudson are together on the other side. She'll take good care of the wonder dog until your time comes (I hope your time is a very long time from now though).
