Friday Frankie

30 Jan


A boy and his ball. I just love his devious little face in this picture. Such a little love muffin. If you follow me on instagram then you already know about how terrible yesterday was. Frank suffered his second anaphylactic shock episode. This time due to a severe reaction to a vaccination at the vets office. It was seriously terrifying. Everything seemed fine when we first woke up…we took our normal three-mile walk…he was so full of energy at that point…when we got home I left him to take a shower to leave for work…I was probably away from him, for oh, I don’t know, thirty minutes. When I walked out of my room I found Frank in the living room gasping for air, his face so swollen that his eyes were closed shut. To say I panicked would be an understatement. I have never ran so fast. I scooped him up and we were in the car in 30 seconds. I was of course in tears as we drove, with a limp Frank heavy in my lap. HORRIBLE. Well, to make a long story short…we made it in time and they gave him a steroid shot, a breathing treatment and ten hours later my little guy came home. So I am beyond grateful for today’s “Frankie Friday” post. He’s one of my most favorite things in this world.

    Omg I think I would have cried/panicked etc.! I’d be a mess! Well done for having it all under control. Did you ever find out why this happened in the first place? Frank is super adorable. I like that you finally gave in to getting a French bulldog and set your goals to actually get Frank 😁. I’m glad I did too! Such funny little characters. Thank you for following! 🙂

      Whoops! You mentioned why in your post – please ignore! Poor frank! Sending him lots of hugs and tummy rubs 🙂 xx
