February Camper of the MonthFrank
Thank you Victoria for sharing your story about Frank, one of our Campers!! You tell the story best!
Hey all! I was asked by a camp counselor to write up a little story about Frank the pug who is currently staying with you all for the weekend! He's now my little baby and I hope he has a fun weekend with you all!! Sometimes Christmas gifts come early and bring more happiness than you can imagine.
In early December of this past year, I heard from a good friend that an older pug was available for adoption in Beckley, WV. However, a main factor in this situation was I was in Charlotte, NC and my parents were in Pittsburgh, PA. Through friends and family "Operation Frankie" was born. It involved two other friends getting up at 5:00 am to drive 2 hours to the shelter for a chance that they could get Frankie for me. I tried to stop them because it was too much to ask but those 2 friends took it on themselves, slept in their car, and stood in line to make sure they were the first ones at the shelter. They were successful, now it was part 2. How to get him home to us.
The next day, after Frankie got his checkup, shots and neutering, my parents drove 3 hours from Pittsburgh to pick him up. They were warned that he had a bad cough and was extremely underweight. (That was a polite way of saying how terrible his condition was.) My parents said their hearts were broken when they saw Frank for the first time. Frankie was terribly thin, he had a knot on his head, a sore on his leg, and his ear looked like it had at one time been bitten. My dad could put his hand around Frankie's backside, and his fingers could touch because he was so thin. My mom said it was pathetic seeing him try to stand and his little leg shook because he just didn't have the strength to stand. They decided at that moment, no matter what, Frankie was coming home to be loved and given the most comfortable, happy life we could provide.
It took time... He never barked, would only sit on the floor with a blanket on him, and tried to avoid our other 2 dogs. Slowly, he let us be a part of his world. He now loves cuddling, going to the dog park, gained 5+ pounds, and loves being the center of attention. On Christmas Eve, while playing with our other dogs, he barked! It was a Christmas gift to us. We kept the shelter's name for him Frank because Saint Francis is the protector of animals, and we think he knew that we will always protect and take care of our Frankie. I always say I wish we could have found him a little sooner but I actually think he came into our lives at the perfect time.
