One of the sweetest, saddest videos we have seen in some time. Kudos to Bella’s wonderful owners.

“This is our cute dog Bella. She was diagnosed with congenital megaesophagus soon after we found her at 4 months old. Megaesophagus means that her esophagus is enlarged and lacks the muscle mobility to swallow food while horizontal. This is her “Baileys Chair,” which she needs sit in while eating and for 10 minutes after she eats. She eats soft dog food with a little water mixed in. She is now seven months old and doing great!

  1. Great to take on a dog for better or for worse. Bella is so lucky to found someone who will do whatever it takes and she will give more love to you in return for all you do for her. Kisses and Hugs to Bella and her family.

  2. To Bella’s owners: “you guys are amazing and your solution to Bella’s problem is ingenious!”

    To Bella: “you are such a smart and clever dog I just know that you will be just fine thanks to your caring and inventive owners.”

    Best wishes to Bella and her family and thank you for being such an inspiration to everyone.

  3. What a sweet dog. She is blessed to have caring and understanding owners. Keep up the good work! We need more caring people like u! 🙂

  4. That is the sweetest video I’ve ever seen. What an amazing dog to run in and fix the chair for herself and then wait patiently for her food. Bella is very luck to have a loving, caring family. Good luck to you all.

  5. Bella’s story is familiar, though I cannot remember if her situation was posted on FB recently ….. are you the ones who made your own Bailey’s chair for her? Can you refresh my memory as to whether or not she was a rescue or if she has always been with you? Awesome, totally awesome; and she appears to be doing very well making the most of her special chair! Kudos to you folks, you rock!
