LIFESTYLE | A Freddy Update

A ball of fluff and using a toilet roll as a you do.

Sometimes I feel like doing little chatty life updates that just don't really fit in with outfit posts or things! And seeing as Freddydog is a big part of my life and therefore this blog I thought I'd just do a little update on him. It's probably well weird to dedicate a post to my dog's mental state ain't it?

Things in my house are obviously very different with my brother being in hospital. He's still in intensive care but makes little steps of progress every day which is brilliant although he's got a very long way to go and we don't know what is going to happen really but we're pretty sure that his recovery is going to be long. He's been in hospital for two weeks now and this whole time my Mum has been staying nearer the hospital to be with him and Freddy is missing them lots. The day after my brother got ill he was picking up on my worried vibes and was following me around all day pining and then he ran out the front door which he never does and nearly got run over. He's also been licking his paws loads and won't eat much so he's lost quite a bit of weight (which fatboy kinda needed to do) so when he had to go to the vets to get his booster jabs she gave me some natural calming stuff for him because he can't sleep at night. As you can see they're working! That vet was actually hilarious, she didn't say 'your dog' or 'your pet' or 'Freddy' she said 'your precious.' So all day I was following Freddy going 'Myyyyy PRECIOUS!' Gollum stylee. Don't think he liked it much. 

But anyway, just wanted to dedicate a post to Fredster because he's been such a comfort for me, especially lately with everything that's going on. He knows I feel sad I'm sure because he's been extra cuddly...don't know what I'd do without this little one!

  1. Fingers crossed your brother continues to keep making those small steps- they all add up and slow and steady wins the race.

    We had Freddy puppies in work on Friday as one of the nurses was fostering them after the mum died- bottle feeding a two week old pup? Cutest thing ever!


  2. Sorry to hear your brother is still in intensive care Josie, but so glad he's making progress however small it may be. I hope he continues to recover and I'm thinking of you and your family, and of course little Freddy dog. It's so sweet that he's being extra cuddly towards you when you need it most, and I bet he needs those cuddles too. Had to laugh out loud at 'my precious'!!! Sending lots of love and get well vibes xxx

  3. awww poor Freddy. What is happening with him? I'm a vet. And so sorry about your brother, he is blessed to have you as his sister! Praying for his speedy and complete recovery!

  17. This was such a lovely, heart warming post to read Josie! It's too sweet that gorgeous Freddie is on hand for cuddles and affection when you need him, and even sweeter (but sad too of course) that he can feel your pain. Guess it means he cares so much about you though, which in itself is adorbs! <3
    I showed this post to my boyf, because he's such an animal lover and he thought it was lovely too! (:

    Sometimes it's nice to get your feelings and goings on down, it can feel like a weight off your shoulders. Am so glad to hear Tommy is making progress, and I hope the road to recovery is as smooth as it possibly can be. Thinking of you and your family sweet. x
