Geez, re-read my post, I was quite  whiny!  This is such a nothing burger compared to what everyone is dealing with on this site!  The problem of handling  a homecoming is a wonderful “problem” to have!!

Thanks for your suggestions Holly.  The visual of a drunk blind Merry Myrtle, combined with a stumbling three legged dog,  LMAO🤣😂🤣😂

You were not whiny.  You were just worried as we all would be.  You have 2 special needs dogs and with Myrtle being blind its a little more difficult to plan where she will walk and where she won’t.   Breathe deep my friend you have this.  We will try to help you through as much as we can

I thought you were pretty chilled considering what you told us 🤯 

Plans just don’t seem to be staying the way they were planned and for that I am sorry. Every day Frankie is getting stronger and i know you want him to be the best he can be before he gets home. 

I would say Benadryl, but if they fall asleep on you who’s gonna carry them?!🤣

On the other hand you have 2 big fluffy pillows to sleep on, haha 😉

One thing we have in common is hard headedness (is that a word?) I know you will get through this, because i know you ❤️

Whiny? YOU? Sally! Oh my dog not at ALL. This is a lot to deal with and the more you share what’s going on the better we can all help you. What you are dealing with is every Tripawd parent’s worst nightmare and you are doing with such a great attitude. Plus, we are all learning from your experience so do not hesitate to share your feelings and the current status, got it?!

I do like the idea of taking Myrtle today for a quick reintroduction. And trazadone for both of them could be a viable option. Have you asked the vet?

Thinking of you today, and hoping all goes well. The important thing is you will all be together for Christmas. And remember, drugs (for the dogs) and alcohol (for you) are our friends!

It is amazing how the “obvious” seems to disappear when it is us. It is hard to breathe without being reminded when it is us. It was hard to remember that I was once a vet tech when it was Huck. 

We will keep reminding you of how awesome you are Sally, and we will remind you to keep chocolate, treats, and wine stockpiled for your recovery days with Frankie. 

Don’t forget to breathe, and never forget your cheerleading squad is here for you 24-7.

FRANKIE COOL CHILL SUPER DAWG IS HOME!!!  AND HE CANNOT STOP WAGGING!!!   😁  Nor can I, nor can Merry Myrtle!!😁

And every picture I took, and every video got all messed up (yes, operator error🤨) so I have none of the great reunionI  I have none of him sliiping out of the Tech’s grip RUNNING to the car and standing on his HIND  legs trying to get in!!!  

Okay, I have  to tell you about the surprise attire, even though I don’t  have a picture  yet.  They finally put “it” on him today, as they were using that “other” harness up to now, which is great for two, or one strong person with a strong back.  Nah, on second thought,  I’m  gonna wait for the reveal when I can get a pixture!!!😉

Oh, I did walk him down the ramp, knowing he had to poop and knowing  he would only go in one spot…under the deck where I couldn’t  get to.  So I let him go….sure enough… he headed to the spot, pooped, came back out and I got to walk him back up the ramp!  Of course, more like RUN!!

The two of them are both sleeping.  He’s  a very, very tired boy .  Myrtle is even giving  him some space and not piling up on top of him.

Have to go to work, so I’ll update with good pics and video later.  In my unprofessional  opinion, he is doing really, really well, all things considered!  The Vet thinks so too!

Your support and advice and encouragement  have been INVALUABLE!!!!  TRULY INVALUABLE!!!   And yeah Jackie it’s  a little harder to “practice what we preach”!!

So much love to all💞❣💝💟💞❣💝💟

Smiling from ear to ear here big-grin That is the best news ever!! Even though it was cut short, the days he had to have rest and limited activity made such a difference for you!!  It sounds like he is going to rally right back and I am thrilled for you. 

What a time for pictures to not come out way-confused Not like you were stressed at all, eh? Will wait for pictures once you can get back home and settled in smiley

Hugs to all of you, I hope you have a wonderful day!

Darling Sally 🌺

I am totally THRILLED to hear the news 😍

Frankie is home, he pooped and he is happy and definitely on the mend !!!!

That is the best Christmas present you could wish for, hey?

Sending you the biggest tornado ever recorded full of hugs and cuddles and all my love and admiration for the wonderful, strong woman you are.

You are an inspiration to us all, Sally, you truly are!
