Bella Need's Surgery.


We need help raising money to cover the cost of a surgery for one of our furry babies.

All funds from my shop & photography will be going towards Bella's surgery.


UPDATE: So far we received three donations for our baby, almost $50!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!



The very first time I saw Bella was at a friend's house, I wanted to take her home and even told my boyfriend that haha. Mine please! I've never met such an extremely friendly dog like her. Plus she's a super cute fluffy that likes to cuddle. Back in 2010, my boyfriend and I had moved out and our friend ended up giving us Bella!! She came from a home with a couple of other dogs and wasn't getting enough attention over there.




Her previous owner had neglected to tell us one very important piece about Bella. She was with us for a couple of months before she had a seizure. I nearly had a panic attack over it. Apparently since she was a puppy, she's had epilepsy. Obviously this didn't change what we thought of her, she will always be our baby! Something else came up later when we met up with the guy again. We found out she has two masses (that look like cow udder's) on her belly. Bella has so much hair that you need to lift her up to be able to see it!

We would like to have hernia surgery done for her in early 2014.  


She likes to roll around in the grass (and dirt apparently) to dry off after a bath.
 
Bella's seizures vary from month to month but we noticed it usually happens while she's on her heat cycle. We wanted to get her "fixed" to get her seizures under control since it was probably happening due to the spike of hormones. We recently went in and the vet told us she had to hernia surgery first or they will not fix her. I already have some money aside but any bits will help. We will also like to get her medication for pain and medication for seizures (just to be safe, while she's healing)


Just sitting like a people, watching tv...
 
It's taken me awhile to even write up this post. I feel weird about asking for help. I've only done it once before and it was unsuccessful but this time, this is something MUCH more important to me. I'm basically relying on my small businesses as income and it'll probably take 5-8 months of saving up with absolutely no spending just to cover the cost of surgery. I don't want to burden my boyfriend since he already has a million bills/loans to take care of himself.



Bella's age is unknown to us but I feel like she's at least 5 or 6 years old. Her masses don't cause her any pain but we need to get this done. We aren't sure of a price yet but we are looking into our options since it ranges from $700 to $2,000.  We will be getting pet insurance.  I'll feel much more comfortable with this if she had pain medication. We definitely need to get medication for her seizures as well while she's healing. That's just a scary thing to even think about.
