Though Emma looks adorable in her little hospital gown and booties, this 6-month-old Chihuahua has gone through a lot! The poor pup was born with a severe cleft palate.
She recently underwent an operation to repair her hard palate deformity. The doctor also attempted to reconstruct her lip and nasal deformities so she could have a functioning nasal passageway.
Emma is recovering well and even was able to have a “real meal,” two days post-op.

Emma even has her own myspace page!
