    They said there was a lot of inflammation in his airways, but they think that was probably from him trying so hard to breathe. They said they thought it was just a cycle where he might have taken fluid into his lungs, then couldn't get enough air, breathing harder and putting pressure on his airways, irritation of the airways, panic, breathing even harder, etc. where it just gets worse and worse. I feel so awful for him. It was horrible when we were on the way to the vets with him gasping for air. I can't imagine how panicked he must have felt. Poor little guy.

    Aww I'm so sorry you're going through this with Frank. I am hoping and praying for you guys that he gets better soon.
    Please don't be so hard on yourself and beat yourself up with guilt. These guys are so sensitive and fragile, and you did all the right things by watching him, and separating him when you saw him panting. You put him in a cool room, and he seemed to be okay afterwards. You kept him inside, and continued to watch him which was a good thing because you noticed that he was having trouble breathing and you got him to the vet. Good job. We do our best to prevent them from overheating, over exercising, and over drinking water, but even with our best efforts, we do t always know how they are going to react, and things can change very quickly. He's at the vets now, and he's getting treatment, I hope he continues to improve and comes home soon. Please keep us posted.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Erin, this can happen very easily so don't feel like you should have done something more- what proves you are a Great bully mom is you noticed something was off and you were able to diagnose him and get him the help he needed. If you didn't, he may not have survived!

    GREAT bully mom!!!

    Praying for a fast recovery and lots of hugs to you all. Will you get to go see him today?

    Poor Frank, I'm so sorry that happened. You are a good Bully mom for having noticed it, like Lisa said it just happens and if you didn't notice it he would be much worse off. Stay strong, you're in my prayers.

    Thank you so much for your thoughts and kind words. I have been crying over how worried I am about my little guy and I am also crying with how thoughtful everyone is. It helps so much during this difficult period of waiting.

    Praying for you and little Frank. So sorry that this has happened. You were so lucky to have an emergency place to take him to. There is nothing like that here, and it is scary. I am sure they are doing everything the best for Frank. Sending more prayers for you,too. Hugs.

    i'm so sorry to hear this happened to Frank, I just adore him. We went through a similar experience with Lola. She couldn't get enough air and tongue turned blue. It was so terrifying that I never let her play or take her on long walks and this is even after her palate/nare surgery. I would be crying my eyes out too, until he was back in my arms. Thank god he is in good hands. People think I'm crazy for not letting Lola 'be a dog'. F THEM! I know what can happen when breathing gets out of hand. I hope to never experience that again. *hug* hang in there.

    Truly...my heart just dropped as I logged on and saw this...not Frank!!!

    And Honey...life happens, please don't shame or blame yourself, it's just
    not deserved. Praying over Frank and each of you, try to eat & rest as
    you can, update us with any news.

    Will pray so very hard that Frank recovers completely and is home asap.
