MEET OUR COVER MODEL CHI CHI IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL COVER MODEL. BUT SHE SURE IS ONE LITTLE CUTIE, AND HAS CERTAINLY FACED HER SHARE OF ISSUES IN HER SHORT LIFE.

THIS IS ONE TINY PEKINGESE FROM SOUTH AFRICA, WITH ONE BIG STORY. Chi Chi fought for life from the very beginning. Her birth was difficult and stressful and it looked as though she wasn’t going to make it. According to Chi Chi’s human mother, Benita, “Chi Chi was the first eager little puppy wanting to come out into the world. After a few minutes I realised there was a huge problem and could tell her head was stuck.” When Chi Chi was eventually born, Benita realised she had a split lip and was very weak. “A week went by and I noticed Chi Chi’s (dog) mother moved her to another room, separate from herself and the other puppies, on a soft towel. Chi Chi was still very weak and was being left out of the feeding. I decided to take things into my own hands and hand reared her with puppy milk. I fed her every few hours day and night, trying to nurse her back to good health.” One night Benita noticed a change in Chi Chi, “She looked and sounded strange – it was as though she suddenly couldn’t breathe.” Benita rushed her by car to the vet – her friend actually giving the little Pekingese mouth-to-mouth on the way in an effort to save her. “I just couldn’t stand the thought of losing 6 Chi Chi. This little being had become such a big part of my life, I’d been through a tough

time just before she was born and she was keeping me going.” Benita’s little angel Chi Chi was fighting for her life that night, and what a little fighter she was. Even the vet was astonished she made it through. Benita said, “It was one of the most stressful and devastating times of my life. I cannot tell you how relieved I was she had been saved.”

“Chi Chi was fighting for her life that night and what a little fighter she was.”


WINNER CHI CHI! Her health challenges continued and Chi Chi was diagnosed with a cleft lip, epilepsy and heart and lung issues, which means she will not grow any bigger than a tiny shoe box. “We [Benita and her new partner] are not sure how long she will be with us for, so we make sure to love her as much as possible every moment.

Chi Chi is also extremely protective of her human Mum. According to Benita, “My new boyfriend can't even kiss me when she is near me because she wants me all to herself – I think she thinks she's a big lion, threatening to attack anyone who tries to come close to me! But she would have to be the smallest, strangest looking lion anyone has ever seen!” Benita declares.

Everyone in the store clapped, and wanted to get close to Chi Chi. Being the cheeky little attention seeker she is, Chi Chi lapped up it up,” Benita laughed. “Chi Chi is my best friend. She sleeps in my bed next to me every night and she is so attached to a little green basket – her favourite toy. It is very funny – but that’s Chi Chi! “I am so thankful to have her in my life! I just can't imagine life without my Chi Chi.”

“I think she thinks she is a big lion, threatening to attack anyone who tries to come close to me!” Due to her tiny stature and unusual face, Chi Chi attracts ‘ooohs and ‘ahhhs’ from passersby everywhere she goes. And she loves the attention says Benita. “One day, while shopping with Chi Chi, after hearing her story, a shop keeper took her in his arms, prayed for her and declared her to live long and be strong!

INSIDE STORY HEADLINE This story can fit 150-200 words. One benefit of using your newsletter as a promotional tool is that you can reuse content from other marketing materials, such as press releases, market studies, and reports. While your main goal of distributing a newsletter might be to sell your product or service, the key to a successful newsletter is making it useful to your readers. A great way to add useful content to your newsletter is to develop and write your own articles, or include a calendar of upcoming events or a special offer that promotes a new product. You can also research articles or find “filler” articles by accessing the World Wide Web. You can write about a variety of topics but try to keep your articles short.
