THE STORY:

On March 24th, our little princess Belle, or Belly-button, brought 6 little bodies into the world. Belle went into labor early in the morning on the 23rd, ironically National Puppy day. Belle couldn't properly go into labor as one of the pups in her stomach stopped developing early on, and passed in the womb. This little angel unintentionally blocked the other puppies from being birthed naturally. Belle went into the vet for a c-section early on the 24th, and the last of the puppies didn't make it. The four that preceeded did though. One boy, three girls. The boy and two of the girls are red tri miniature Aussie shepherds, and the other girl is a red Merle, just like her momma. This little red Merle, she's something special. Nicknamed Blue Cheese, this little girl was born with a cleft palette. This means that there is an opening between the nasal cavity and oral cavity. This is life threatening. At this age, it's necessary for the pups to eat every few hours, nursing from the mother, but Blue Cheese's cleft palette doesn't allow her to properly suckle. She may easily aspirate if she tries to feed naturally. If she cannot suck on the breast, she must be tube fed. This is distressing for her, the mother, and the owners. In order for her to receive surgery for her cleft palette, she must be at four months old, but it's safer around six months. Right now, we're doing everything we can to make sure this baby Blue Cheese makes it, staying up all hours of the night, making sure she gets proper nutrition and warmth, but to give her the best chance to make it to surgery, and for her future well being, she needs a gastronomic tube placed in her stomach. This is costly, $1500 to put the peg in place, which would be the first of many serguries to come. Her first palate surgery alone could cost upwards of $2500.  All we're asking is to donate what you can to help our little princess live the best life she can. At only two days old, we know she's a fighter, and she's ready for the long road ahead. Help us, help her! Please donate and share!
