Frankie is an old guy with some serious health issues and he may not have a lot of time left, but no matter what, we will make sure that time is filled with nothing but love and all the best that we can offer him. He has become quite bonded to us, wagging his tail and demanding our attention whenever he sees us, and we realize it would be detrimental to him to place him in a new home – no matter how wonderful and loving it may be.
So, there is one thing we now know for sure … he’s going to spend the rest of his days with us. It’s official … Cranky Frankie Long-Legs is now a Taylor!
It was 90 days ago that we rescued Frankie from the shelter in South Carolina. He was sick and emaciated, skin and bones, and he could barely walk – honestly, we didn’t think he would survive the first couple weeks. But Frankie received top-notch care from Dr. Prause (internal medicine), Dr. Sitzman (dentist), Dr. Lineberger (surgeon), Dr. Heaney (cardiologist), and the wonderful staff at Four Seasons Veterinary Specialists. The generous donations to Harley’s House of Hope made this all possible. Our sincerest THANKS to everyone who donated, shared and prayed. Because of YOU, Frankie was given a second chance, and we’re tremendously grateful.
Moving forward, we will do our best to manage Frankie’s medical issues, always making sure his comfort and happiness are the top priority. We love this little fella to pieces and it’s clear he loves us, too!
