“Our Bessie Boo needs you”
I'm setting up this page on behalf of a much loved best friend and her family. 2yrs ago they lost their staff Dizzy and it's taken them this long to welcome a new member into the family.
We think she didn't have a good start in life and she seems to have a dislike of men with beards but I'm pleased to report that this is becoming less of an issue as we are showing her so much luv and affection that you can't help but fall in luv with her on sight.
This dry arid weather and grass seed darts are playing havoc with dogs of all breeds fur and in particular their paws and Bessie has sucome to this too by having a dart removed from her paw which is deemed as treatment therefore they are now unable to get her insured.
Whilst at the vet having her treatment the vet discovered a problem with her breathing which if left could be life threating so the family are needing to make the hardest decision in agreeing to an operation which is billed at costing £3000.
This family and Bessie are so well known in their local community due to the unusual breed and colouring of Bessie in addition to the "nothing too much trouble" attitude of the family.
They are such a proud family and never ask anyone for anything (apart from my occasional DIY skills) so they would never dream of setting up a page such as this and they will kill me I'm sure once they find out but they do so much for everyone else that now I think it's time for us to show them how much they mean to us.
Any contributions however small will be greatfully received and we just want this family to know that we want Bessie who is refered to as the "baby" to have the best life possible.....shes only 10 months and we want her to be with us for at least the next 10 yrs and beyond.
Thank you all in advance for taking the time to read this crowd funding page. Michelle (Bessie's auntie) x
