We now interrupt your regularly programmed negative news stories to bring you one with a miracle happy ending! *Winston is unenthused about being on the local news. He told me he won’t settle for anything less than @theellenshow moving forward.* . . Our Frenchie Winston got loose in the stairwell of our LES apartment building and managed to make it onto the roof. Trying to play a game of keepaway he dashed away from me and ran the length of the roof toward the front edge. Before he could slow himself down it was too late and I watched him disappear over the edge, falling six stories landing with a terrifying crash. In a panic, I rushed downstairs trying to prepare myself to pick up my lifeless dog. I reach the street to not only find him alive, but sitting up in the front seat of a parked car looking at the stunned crowd surrounding him. He managed to break his fall perfectly on top of the car’s closed sunroof. He crashed through it and tumbled safely into the front seat. I was in shock. I frantically climbed on the hood of the car and by the skin of his neck pulled Winston through the broken sunroof, handing him off to my husband as I searched for the closest 24 hour animal hospital. He had a few cuts and scrapes and was hyperventilating, but didn’t express any signs of being in pain. We rushed him to @bluepearlvet as fast as we could and I handed him over, with tears on my face and blood on my hands. Miraculously he did not break a single bone in his body. Bruising to his lungs kept him in an oxygen chamber for his 36-hour stay, but all signs of bruising were gone at the time of his release. He has literally walked away from this with nothing more than a couple stitches. We are so grateful for every single coincidence that allowed him to survive this fall. It truly is nothing short of a miracle. 😇 . . #famous #miracle #survivor #frenchbulldog #frenchiesofinstagram #frenchie #frenchies #dogsofinstagram #dogoftheday #instagood #igdaily #cutedogs #viral #localnews #lowereastside #nyc #ibelieveicanfly #superdog #9lives #ellendegeneres #helpus #vetbillsfordays #worthit
