Arrival Story: I had been looking for a maltese for a while when I came across a breeder who only had one available puppy at the time.
A few days before I was due to get Bella the vet discovered Bella had a serious heart murmur. The breeder understood if I wanted to wait for another puppy.
I didn't want to wait and took Bella home (even although many people thought I was being very stupid) after a visit to our new vet I was told Bella may only live a few weeks, a couple of months at the very most.
Bio: Bella is now 6 years old and is doing great
She had an x-ray in september 2004 which showed that her heart is actually double the size it should be and that there was a little fluid building up so she was put on some medication to help. We have seen the vet every few months since then and he is very pleased at how well she is doing on her medication .
I know that she may not live a full life but she's happy, and according to the vet her heart is very healthy for a bad one! She definitely isn't in any pain and clearly doesn't know that there is anything wrong with her. She has to be the sweetest maltese ever.
We haven't used dogster in some time, however we know we have lots of lovely friends on here. Sadly, little Bella passed away on the 1st of June. It was sudden and unexpected and has taken us some time to get our head around it all!
Her 'sisters' Floee & Mya are doing well, its taken them a while as well but they seem to be getting into a new routine.
Would like to say thank you to all the wonderful people I met via Bella and their pooches, those of you who we 'know' on Facebook knew about Bella's death at the time and have been wonderful
We will never forget Bella, that special little pup with the super large heart and will keep her memory alive via her new web-shop - Bella's Wardrobe (www.bellaswardrobe.net)
Sadly, bella passed away 2 days before it was due to open so never got to see 'her' company up and running via the shop web site, only on facebook - but we know she was so proud to have 10,000 facebook fans for her shop and hopefully is watching over us all xxx
How are you all? Well, its been a really really long time such i wrote last!!
And lots has happened.
Firstly, ive been for another check up and got a great report! My heart is doing really well considering and everything else is okay too. My colitis seems to be better these days too so all is well. Mum was very pleased and i guess santa was too as i was spoiled rotten at christmas! It was flora (or floee) as we call her and Myas first christmas. They had great fun but mya was a bit scared santa paws would come in the night and take her away. (I was only teasing her -- i didnt know she would believe me did i??!) The two of them have got SOOOOO BIG now! Both of them are bigger than me. I dont know how that works since in the oldest!
Infact, it was my birthday last week and i was a big 7 years old. Pretty good since the silly puppy dr said id only live 6 month. I got loads of lovely dresses and toys and had a great party too. I think mums going to post some photos. Shes also going to update myaand floees pages as they havent bneen done in months!
