Dear little Bonnie, a 6
year old chihuahua
arrived at our rescue at the
end of June 2007.
Her tiny little
body had to carry the physical burden
of a huge hernia that hung
her knees. She also had two mammary
tumours that needed to be
Her huge hernia contained
much fatty tissue, as well as her uterus.
Imagine the relief
Bonnie felt when she was able to walk without hindrance,
and to go to
the toilet without having to squat around this gigantic bulge.
After surgery, Bonnie's
tiny tummy was a patchwork of surgical incisions
and sutures. This teeny girl had 21 sutures
in her little tummy..
Many of our dogs come to
the rescue in need of life saving surgery, and this
surgery is not only
extensive, but also expensive. Bonnie is a lucky girl as
expenses have been covered by her guardian angel.
