Sally, this is all great information! Your rehab person was most helpful! The more we know the more we can offer support in any which way we can! I am sorry that you are in the predicament you are in. Know that you are all in my heart and thoughts!

Frankie darling, i fall in love with you again and again and again! Those eyes Frankie! You sure do know how to use them! It’s no wonder you get away with what you do… I’m not sure i could even ask you to sit if you gave me those eyes!!! 

Love to you Sally and hugs to your beautiful kiddos!

Hey er’rebody … it’s been a super long time since I’ve logged in, it seems. Sorry I’ve been gone so long.

Do I understand that Frankie is turning his leg out? Izzy did that after her knee repair. I never broke her of the habit but we didn’t do rehab and I was terribly soft on her. I love the shot of Frankie’s stink eye. Izzy would most definitely approve!

Sally, and everyone, I just wanted to pop on and let you know that I still think of you! I just am not online a ton, not even Facebooger, really. And let’s be honest, we ‘ll know I’m really only on there to “like” pics of naughty pups being adorable. 

Please let me know if I can help! XOXO 

Amy & that beautiful, silly bulldog in the sky, Izzyheart

Momma to the world's most beautiful American Bulldog, Izzy!! Lost her front leg to OSA 9/18/15. Diagnosed w MCT in June 2016. Celebrated her 1 year ampuversary with knee surgery on 9/18/16! MCT recurrence in Dec 2016. Happy & hungry til nearly 14, earning her wings on 7/31/17.

If anybody can pull this together, it is Frankie, hence the stink eye …

He is saying “did you not see the video of me running on two legs”?

The sky is the limit for this hound, Sally 💪🏽

He is an example for all three leggers here 😉

Me and Angel Eurydice alongside all our family are cheering for your boy 🏆😃

Sending you an avalanche of kisses and a truckload of cuddles to Frankie and his best pal Myrtle 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

I think Frankie needs “The Conversation”. I have to give it to Eli every now and then as a reminder. “The Conversation” with Eli goes like this (you’ll want to change the script for Frankie’s situation):

1. Choose a quiet time when you are alone with Frankie. Sit at his level and make sure you have eye contact.

2. Initially I wrote out a script so I didn’t forget anything, it goes something like this: “Eli, I love you very much and I know you like to show me how much you love me. You show that love by bringing me rats. Obviously, you are a great hunter and have many skills. I admire these skills. I like you show me your love. But you know what? You can show that love even more by leaving what you killed outside the door. That way I will see it, then praise you and dispose of it. Thanks for listening. Want a snack?”

3. He only gets a snack if he listened attentively and doesn’t talk back. 

For some reason he never talks back during this talk. It works for awhile but does need to be repeated. 

Tell Frankie if a cat can get it so can he. Happy healing Frankie and Myrtle!

With a grateful heart,

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

We won’t tell Frankie anything Sally, that is your gift to him! When you see his face light up when he sees his rehab person walk through the door, that is his gift to you! winker

Love to you and Super Frankie and his very Merry Myrtle

Geez, Frankie is STILL waiting  for some good massages, caravati, slow ramp walks, etc  I’ve  delayed the updates thinking we would jave a Rehab visit “any day”….NOT!

Her schedule  has been really really tight.  Then add crazy wet, windy, snowy weather, and it’s  made everything harder to schedule

HOPEFULLY, she can make it THIS Sunday after I get off work.  She’s  pretty special  trying to make a Sunday work.  If not, it looks liken it will be May 15th on a Tuesday.

I’ve stopped most of his at home stuff right now as he seems to be having  a “set back”.  It started  to get a “little backslide” the past week or two….and then the past secceral days the “back slide” is looking kinda scary to me!!  He is showing some pain.

Right now it’s  meds and rest.  And yes, I could take him to my regular Vet (and may do so if Rehab can’t come Sunday).  And yes, I’m  temporarily  burying my head in the sand.   If it’s  an issue with the surgery….if it’s  failed……or if it’s  the meniscus…..nah….not going tnere!

The Rehab Vet and Team Frankie  have been our MIRACLE and are continuing  to do miraculous  things 😎

Again, sorry for the delay and I,probably  should have waited til the Rehab appt. As I have nothing to update yet.   Then I could give you some substance!

And yes, one of the videos is s   of Frankie loving  toilet bowl water!!    That’s  my Frankie doing what He wants when he wants!😎

Sally, we couldn’t be happier to see an update! We have been wondering how you are all doing?!! So glad you have given us this update my darling!!

im sorry that Frankie is having a bit of a backslide, but Frankie is still doing what Frankie does best… drinking out of toilet bowls and wagging his beautiful tail while sniffing out EVERYTHING!!!big-grin

We will look forward to hearing what your rehab therapist says and maybe Frankie just over did it in these spring feeling days. Okay we have more of a spring feeling than you do!!!

Many hugs and kisses to you Sally! And sloppy kisses to both Frankie and Merry Myrtle! And thanks again for the great videos of our Freakin’ Handsome Frankie!

Oh Frankie!  Yes Sally let’s not go to the worst case scenario lets just hope he might’ve had a bit of a slip at some point due to bad weather and had a small setback.  He is still touching with it so rest and pain meds may be just the ticket.  Hopefully rehab will be able to come this Sunday and Frankie gets back on all three.  So Frankie R&R for you till Sunday!  With maybe a little massage from Momma cause those are always a good thing right boy?  Sending love and hugs!

We were wondering how you guys were doing!
Awe Frankie hang in there buddy! I am sorry to see he had a setback.

Meds and Rest sound like a great plan & see what Dr.Weedle says. We are hoping she can fit Frankie in on Sunday & she can keep coming and sort this out!🙏

We are sending prayers and pawsitive thoughts out to the universe!
More miracles are coming for Frankie!

Lots of love to you three!!

Rest and meds sound just the ticket. He does look rather tentative, but as Linda says, he is still touching which is a REALLY POSITIVE SIGN, I think. There could be loads of factors causing this little blip, a small slip or strain sounds highly likely, especially given the weather you have been having, and Frankie’s natural “exuberant” nature. And you know how it is, once they tweak something, they compensate and that can cause a strain somewhere else, and on and on like dominoes. Rest and meds, Frankie, okay? Rest and meds, and listen to your Momma. Will be waiting for your update, Sally, once Dr Miracle has seen him, hopefully on Sunday.

And please, please, please don’t EVER feel you need to wait for something concrete to post. Sometimes the not knowing and worrying and wondering is precisely when you need the most support. We’re there for you every step of the way.

Sending love and every positive vibe,
