Meet Bella. She’s an ordinary 11-year-old girl with one uncommon diagnosis: Morquio syndrome. In short, Bella’s condition means that her mobility is steadily deteriorating over the years, and there’s no way for her to get it back.

A few years ago, her family was given an explanation as to exactly what would happen: Eventually, their daughter will not be able to walk around herself.

But the family refused to give up hope.

That’s when George came into the picture … and Bella’s life changed forever.

Bella and George are the best of friends. He’s her service dog and gives her the ability to go wherever she wants by helping her to walk. On his back is a harness that reads “service dog” and “does not pet”.

As a result of his duties, George has become something of a hero for Bella – the two are literally almost inseparable.

One day, Bella decided that it was time her faithful companion was given a little time off. She wanted to give back to him, as he gives so much to her.

Bella’s family contacted BarkPost – a popular website that organizes something called a “Dog’s Best Day”. After hearing Bella’s story, the group offered to give George his “best day” ever.

Bella planned plenty of fun things for the two of them to do together. She wanted to show just how much she appreciates everything George does, so the pair ate burgers together and played around in the snow, just as George likes to do.

Thanks to George, Bella can move about without the help of a wheelchair. She loves the freedom this gives her, and being with George has given her a new best friend.

Below, you can see the footage from when George had his “Dog’s Best Day”.

As Bella describes in her own words: “George is joyful and he’s always happy, and he’s always there to cheer you up. He is my best friend.”
