At the risk of sounding like a halfhearted blogger, many apologies for the lack of posts lately. It’s been a crazy month full work, home renovations, doula trainings and dog recovery. More about the first three later, but for now I just wanted to post a photo of Frenchie one month after his surgeries.
Thank you so much to all of you who wrote me privately to ask about him. He is better than I could have ever imagined. When I saw him laying on the vet’s table panting and crying in pain, I truly feared he’d never walk again. Now it’s all we can do to keep him from running, jumping and frisking. If you asked him, he’d tell you that he’s been 100% healed for weeks and we are crazy/mean for keeping him from doing his favorite activities. If you ask the surgeon, he’d tell you that he’s very pleased with Frenchie’s recovery so far and that we need to continue limiting his activity for another two weeks to make sure it has time to heal properly without risking re-injury.
The best part of this has been the outpouring of love and support we’ve received from friends, many of whom we’ve never met in person. Our fellow volunteers at the French Bulldog Rescue Network rallied around us immediately with doctor recommendations, treatment ideas, tales of successful recoveries, and plenty of thoughts and warm wishes. It made me so proud and thankful to be a part of such a wonderful organization.
