French bulldog fell from six-story building and will be just fine!

Doggone it!


Too scary though.


It’s a dog’s life.


A cat gets nine – how many does a dog get?

They’re lucky their dog didn’t wind up with its face looking all smashed in!

Never mind.


Who names a French bulldog Winston?


Would ‘Churchill’ have worked better, do you think?

Anyway, it’s the advantage of being small. Much easier to survive high falls.

To the mouse and any smaller animal [gravity] presents practically no dangers. You can drop a mouse down a thousand-yard mine shaft; and, on arriving at the bottom, it gets a slight shock and walks away, provided that the ground is fairly soft. A rat is killed, a man is broken, a horse splashes.


Maybe the dog was sick of living with a perpetual breathing problem?


Who said he had one?? FACT not every french bulldog needs boas surgery!
But then you would know this if your commenting on it in the first place yeah!

I had a roommate whose cat fell from an open window 3 stories and didn’t make it. He thought the cat enjoyed sitting in the open window sill and had been able to jump up and hang out there many times before. But one misjudged leap (I’m guessing) led to the tragedy. Maybe my roommate was an idiot and most people wouldn’t do it, but Please please please keep the screen closed if you’ve got an indoor cat in an apartment building.

(I know that’s a bit off topic and that’s not what happened with this dog but yeah most animals won’t survive a fall of even a couple stories)


Maybe I missed it, did they just leave the car in the street with a busted sunroof? Somebody came out their car later and thought they had been robbed? Did they at least leave a note?

It’s nice his parents were able to comment though. Wonder what his owners would have said?

I was once knocked from my bicycle by a hit and run through the rear window of a parked car, they must have thought a murder took place, as far as I know the ambulance crew didn’t leave a note but I was a little groggy at the time.

I took care of a cat for a friend and just had a tiny opening on the window to get some fresh air, and somehow the cat managed to squeeze through and fall out. Only two stories and on grass, so my story had a happier ending. The cat just sat on the ground looking up like “How am I supposed to get back up again?”. It seemed totally unhurt.



Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.”


I know it’s not a popular opinion but the entire dogbreeding industry is messed up. They totally lost sight of the health of the dogs and nearly only focus on what are often unheathly traits.

That your defence is that not all of them need surgery for a condition they were specifically bred towards says enough.

I’m a huge dog lover, it really hurts me to see that so many are being bred to suffer unnecessarily.


A Frenchman?
