Ok, everyone. I found out today that my lovely Bulldog, Betty Buttons, needs soft palate surgery.
She’s been having troubles for about a year now, and they’ve been getting worse. After many visits to the vet, lots of different medications, etc… I went to a new vet today that is more experienced with English Bulldogs. We thought it was allergy related all this time. Now I know why she’s been having so many problems with her breathing! The surgery is approx. $900, so all of the profits made from sales between now and next month will be going to fund her surgery.
I mega appreciate your support. <3
All of these fabrics are available in my shop and I can make you a custom size skirt (you can even choose the length!) that looks like this:
All skirts have an elastic waist and are very comfortable!
There are many awesome and unique fabrics available, but I usually only have enough of each fabric to make one skirt!

Coming soon: More jewelry!
She woke me up around 5 A.M. and I could tell she was really struggling to breathe through her stuffy nose. She was breathing in through her mouth, and out through her nose. She sounded extremely congested and looked miserable.
They sedated her and put her on oxygen and fluids. She was given a steroid injection and several other injections to help open her airways, and several x-rays were taken. No Pneumonia, thank goodness!
The emergency vet closed at 8 a.m., so we had to transfer her to another vet. They monitered her breathing. They originally were going to do a surgical procedure, which I was extremely upset about, but they called about 15 minutes after we got home and told us that they decided that all of this is being caused by her elongated soft palate.
Today’s bills have totalled about $650 (it was $1,000 originally, but since they decided not to do the procedure, they refunded me) and it’s all gone on my credit card. I don’t care, because Betty means the world to me. However, now I’m freaking out because I have no idea how I’ll be able to pay this back, AND pay for the palate surgery. Mom and Dad are helping, obviously, but she is my dog.
I just want for her to feel better. I hate watching her go through this stuff. These last 6 months have just been really hard on her. :( I wish my vet would have talked to me about the soft palate issue last year instead of focusing on just allergies. Now 3 different vets have told me that she definitely needs the surgery in the span of 24 hours.
Please send lots of good thoughts for Betty. <3 She’s home, now. Resting well and her breathing sounds way better. They’ve recommending a specialist down in Los Angeles that can do the surgery once Betty feels better.
