As most of you already know January was supposed to be an exciting month for my family. We were expecting bulldog puppies and I was starting a fresh new year with my career. Things were finally looking up. On January 22, 2016 my son fell and broke his arm and it required a reduction that cost me almost $2000. Then on January 25, 2016, I received a phone call from my son saying that Bella had messed herself on the couch. I knew that couldn't be so I ran home to check on her. She had went into labor early. We called the vet and took her up there for an emergency csection. She went back and no one could prepare us for what happened next. Our vet came out and said that it wasn't good, that her heart rate had dropped tremendously. She was in distress although she showed absolutely no signs of it. I told him to do his best to save her and the puppies. She had just been in for a check up 3 days prior. He went ahead and delivered the puppies and there were 10 of the most precious babies ever. But my baby never woke up. One of the puppies had got lodged in her chest cavity and the sac ruptured which spread infection all around her lungs and heart. So I never got to introduce her to her babies. I was so hurt and scared, grieving for the loss of my baby and trying to figure out how I was going to be a mommy to ten puppies. There were seven boys and 3 girls. Sampson, Murray, Ranger, Petey, Kirby, Sawyer, CJ, Maybelline, Gracie Mae and Roxanne. They were so sweet and precious and I loved every minute. My Bella was still living through her puppies! I still had part of her in my life. Then tragedy struck once more. Three of those precious babies passed away, 2 girls and 1 boy. Maybelline, Roxanne and Petey left to be with their mama. I was once again devastated. I had Bella cremated with her three puppies. I had to make some hard decisions, my son was possibly facing surgery and I had puppies to feed by hand every two hours. I had to quit my job and take care of them. So I did, I found another job and just delayed my start date. I was so sleep deprived and beyond exhaustion but I loved every minute. But it took a toll on my finances that were already super tight. My husband had a job and that's the only way we scraped by. Formula, bottles, rice cereal, medicines, pens, puppy pads, etc sent we way into debt. We had to borrow a small amount of money not knowing when we would be able to pay it back. Then we got good news, my son did not require surgery, his arm was healing. Thank the Lord! And all 7 puppies were thriving! We decided that we couldn't part with three of the puppies and the other four were gifted into loving homes. Well I started my new job and the puppies will be 7 wks old this coming up Monday, but I am still drowning in debt and we are in the process of moving. There are things I need that I just cannot afford. I struggled with starting one of these but I really don't know of any other way to make this happen without going bankrupt. I haven't asked for anything throughout this whole process, I've had vet bills also. All of my family and friends have seen this whole ordeal and know how hard it has been. Just if you can donate $5 or if not just share and please pass the word on and pray. Nothing will ever bring my Bella back and I understand that but I will always see her in these precious babies. Thank you and God Bless.
