Chanel "Nelly" Smith

January 27, 2014 — March 31, 2023

Chanel "Nelly" Smith, beloved canine family friend, crossed the Rainbow Bridge, peacefully on March 31, 2023. Known affectionately as Nelly, she was born on January 27, 2014, and brought joy, love, and laughter to everyone who knew her. Nelly was a loving, friendly, and gentle soul, always eager to share her warmth and affection with those around her.

Nelly's story began when she was given as a Valentine's Day gift to her mother by her father during their first year together. This thoughtful and meaningful gesture marked the beginning of a beautiful and cherished bond between Nelly and her family. She quickly became an integral part of their lives, bringing happiness and comfort to all who had the pleasure of meeting her.

Throughout her life, Nelly was known for her love of lamb chop toys, which she would carry around with her and play with for hours on end. Her playful and energetic nature was contagious, and she had a unique ability to brighten even the gloomiest of days. She was also a big fan of cuddles, and there was nothing she enjoyed more than snuggling up with her loved ones on the couch or in bed, providing warmth and companionship.

Nelly had a particular fondness for food, especially when it came to the morsels that her baby brother would accidentally drop. She was always on the lookout for these tasty treats, and her keen sense of smell and quick reflexes ensured that she never missed an opportunity to snatch them up. This love of food extended to all aspects of her life, and she was often found eagerly awaiting her next meal or treat.

Throughout her time with her family, Nelly's gentle and loving nature endeared her to everyone she met. Her friendly demeanor and wagging tail were a constant source of joy and comfort. She had an uncanny ability to sense when someone was feeling down or needed a little extra love, and she would always be there to provide it, whether through a gentle nuzzle, a comforting paw on the knee, or simply by being a warm and calming presence.

As we remember and celebrate Nelly's life, we are reminded of the profound impact she had on those who knew her. Her gentle spirit and loving nature touched the hearts of everyone she encountered, and she leaves behind a legacy of love, friendship, and compassion that will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Nelly's memory to a local animal shelter or rescue organization, so that other animals can be given the chance to experience the same love and care that Nelly received throughout her life.
