Little things are what matters...like seeing Bella spin around happily, wagging her tiny tail at my silly singing. :love2:
Only 3 months ago she feared the world, and now seeing her act so happy from something so small, truly warms my heart.


Enjoy little Bella, and please don't laugh at my awful singing ;), it makes Bella happy, and has served as one of my rehabilitation tools.

Tracy, she used to be so fearful. She would sit in the corner, or under the bed
and tremble. Afraid to walk, eat, drink, everything. It was heartbreaking. And
the moment I thought we made progress, some noise or object would scare her
and we'd be back to zero. She acts more free now, it makes me sooooo happy.

I can't believe how far she has come! I remember when you got her how you told us that your new rescue was so scared and timid and tiny. And look at her now- a member of a family and pack with brothers, a sister, a momma and a papa that love her! And she is so confident and happy, I love it!!!

How are her knees? Still contemplating LP surgery?

That is adorable! She obviously loves and trusts you, wonderful to see her so full of joy.
Oh I love her too, it's impossible not to. My pups, hubby, everyone who meets
her, all love her. She's a very good dog, wants to make me happy, but still
has some fears that hold her back from certain things, but hey I'm more than
happy with the improvements she did make in just 3 months, I'm looking
forward to what's to come.




Awwww.. I love it! So cute and sweet! She does seem very free and happy. I wouldn't think she was ever fearful!
Oh it was so bad and so sad. She would drop to the floor as if someone shot
her, just from the sound of me pulling a kneenex out of a box. She would not
eat or drink, not from her tiny bowl, not from my hand, not off the floor, not
even if she skipped a meal, I had to stay up many many sleepless nights to
make sure I can get a tiny bit of food in her and to give her water through
syringe. She wouldn't walk, and if you picked her up and put her in her bed
for example, she would sit there and shake all day, I had to take her outside
every 3 hours to try and get her to potty, but outside scared her even more
than indoors. Her leash, collar, people, dogs, hubby, me, noises, places,
surfaces, you name it, she was scared of it. She would get these little
breakthroughs, and even act a little playful, and then you take one loud
breath or move your hand or foot and she cowers and shakes again...
She is so different now. Still fears many things, but can now enjoy a
lot of "normal" dog stuff, like walks and eating, and playing, even cuddles.

For now, we are letting her live without the surgery, she is walking and
running without any issues, she shows no signs of pain or discomfort,
she does not limp, etc. BUT I am still contributing to that "Bella" savings
account just in case. And my vet recommended a great Doctor to perform
the surgery, if we decide to in the future. I've come to realize that with
LP you really need to look at each individual case, some need surgery
others better do without, especially since it's a grade 4. No decisions
were set in stone though. I like to have a source of funds just in case.





She looks so happy! Her little tail is going a mile a minute. :)
Can't believe it's been only 3 months- it looks like she's come a long way.
Oh she sure has. She's very very smart.:)

That is just precious !!! :D
She's so squeezable isn't she? :)



How adorable. You have a very comforting voice.
Oh cut it out...now I'm going through the "Oh lord why did I put this video up" phase
haha! ;) Sooo embarrassing. I just figured only other Chi lovers could appreciate
the silly things I do for my fur kids.

I sing to all my animals. They all have their own theme tunes :) The only time it didn't work was when I was trying to tame down a pair of Mara. They absolutely hated my singing lol. So I would just sit in their pen and read aloud to them instead.

Awww.. I couldn't imagine! I am so glad you were able to get her past that. That is no way for a dog to live. :( But looking at her now she looks so happy and joyful. It really does warm your heart to see that transformation! Some of the fear she has now still could be just normal Chi fears. My girls, especially my lil Izz, are sometimes spooked by things.
