So...my birthday weekend started out great. Saturday, I went to brunch with some friends, my nieces and my sisters. It was great and then that afternoon, Kenny and I decided to take the pups to the park to go for a walk. We piled them into the back of my Xterra like we usually do. We cracked the windows just enough for Jackjack to get his head out and went on our way. Half way there, Frankie some how stepped on the window control, rolled down the window and jumped out of the moving car! It was INSANE! I can't tell you the details because they are still fuzzy but we stopped, he came to me and I grabbed him and realized he was bleeding from all four paws. To make a long story short, we rushed him to the ER vet and they bandaged him up. He has to have all four paws bandaged. He doesn't have any broken bones and thank God he's alive! The experience was one of those lessons you never want to learn this way.
He also has to wear these plastic IV bags when he goes out if it's wet because if the bandages get wet we have to take him in to get them replaced right away. He's not a fan of these.
I have learned that I MUST have the child locks on and that Frankie must be restrained and watched at all times in the car. I still can't believe it happened and even though it was an accident, it's hard not to blame myself for not being more vigilant. He's healing slowly and we have to have his bandages changed every 2 days for a while. They said the back ones will take longer to heal becuase they are worse than the front. He's in good spirits even though he's become a bit of a whiner because he is not a fan of the e-collar.
Thank you for all of the kind words and prayers. It's been a crazy and emotional weekend. I promise to keep you posted on how he is doing.
Well...I have more fibery and doggie pictures to share with you but I wanted to get this post up before it's been to long. I'm off to watch the Office and My Boys with my hubby and cuddle with the pups...oh by the way which I found out that I'm allergic to dogs today! HAHAHA It's funny because I am fine around my dogs and most dogs and that nothing will change other than I'll be adding dog to my allergy shots! Crazy though! Me allergic to dogs. :) hehehe
Ok...off to watch tv, knit and get some sleep. Tomorrow is my first day back to work after 5 days off...going to be a rough one!
