Here's the short version...in June, we rescued an adorable little chihuahua mix for Ellie's Bday surprise. But, the surprise was really ours because lo and behold, the dog was pregnant! We named her Lucy Love. Well, Lucy delivered 2 pups on July 27th and then much to our dismay, rejected them. Apparently, Lucy was only 2 years old and not mature enough to be a good mom. One of the puppies, Izzy, was born with a cleft palate, a slit in the roof of her mouth that made it impossible for her to nurse or drink anything on her own. Claire, my 15 year old daughter, was born with cystic fibrosis so she immediately connected with Izzy and her struggle to survive. So, we found ourselves on quite an unexpected journey...raising and feeding two adorable puppies..one with special needs. Little did we know this would be a life changing, wonderful, heart warming experience! Albeit an expensive one. Izzy is doing well at nearly 3 months old but desperately needs a surgery to correct her cleft palate. So far, our vet bills have added up to well over $1,000. We are on a limited income having a child with special needs already.. We need your help! Please follow the journey of Izzy and Claire and see all the beautiful pictures and stories on her page.. http://www.facebook.com/izzywineland
