the absolute charm and preciousness of emma the cleft palate chihuahua defines ‘fun, furry and fabulous’ in this latest video! emma is a teeny tiny chihuahua and a famous chihuahua regular born in 2008 with a cleft palate, cleft lip and craniofacial deformities. she turned 4 on august 4th 2012 and is a mere 30 ounces in weight! she will also be featured in our 2013 calendar!
rescued just after birth, little emma was tube fed for the first 9 months of her life and has endured 6 surgeries (all, for the most part, to no avail). her skull is still wide open in many areas, leaving nothing between her tiny brain and the world but a paper thin layer of skin. she doesn’t “live the life of a dog” because the world is just much too dangerous for her, but she is still a brilliant, sweet spirited, blissfully content little girl. click here for emma’s amazing story!
