Our Bella from earlier blogs is still not putting on weight. She is still a walking skeleton, and it worries us since she is getting fed three times a day by her foster mother.

We took her this morning to Dr Damiani to have her spayed, but she was still underweight --- the doctor and we agreed that we have to figure out why and get her in better shape before doing the surgery.

Dr Damiani examined Bella and she laid totally still the whole time. She was fantastic. Her foster mother had to dry her mouth since Bella drooled so much from being stressed.

Dr Damiani is a great veterinarian. He gives us a lot of time and educates us at the same time. Every time we learn something new and our work feels very rewarded from him. Can you imagine that today he thanked us for doing so much for the Neapolitan strays?

My heart felt warm and we get inspiration to keep going. On top of everything he is keeping his costs low for our Foundation and NFOA. --I know since we have been working with other veterinarians here.--

With Bella he did a rectal examination and found out she is eating a lot of gravel!!! A blood test was being sent away-- for many internal answers we hope for. We really want to know what is wrong with our girl Bella.

She is only 3 years old, blind in her left eye and has been abused by people before. She is so worthy a good and calm life, and a nutritional correct life.

Before leaving, Dr Damiani came out with a carton of dog food for us, as a gift. What an Amore veterinarian, AWL is so grateful for the person he is!

And Bella was so scared that she turned out to be so brave on the examine table, it was amazing to see her. Bella, we are doing everything so you can feel better and get healthy!
