UPI News Service, 11/10/2017
Kim Zolciak shared on Instagram a photo of her 5-year-old son Kash kissing the family dog that attacked him in April.
"Kroy and I after a few tough days and many conversations decided to share our story about Kash and the dog bite. I'm sick to my stomach and my eyes are full of tears as I try to even write this.. the sole purpose we did share this was to raise awareness that this can happen to ANYONE!" Zolciak wrote Thursday alongside the photo mentioning her husband Kroy Biermann and how Friday's episode of Bravo's "Don't Be Tardy" will cover the dog attack that left Kash hospitalized.
"I'll never forget Kash's plastic surgeon a few weeks after the bite/ and Kash's surgery, He looked me square in my eyes and said, "You guys know how blessed you are (it was less than a millimeter from his eye ball (his waterline was sliced in half) and you have the platform to raise awareness and I hope you do!" the reality star continued.
"Thank you guys so much for all your support. P.S My Kashew is the strongest little boy I know!" Zolciak concluded after thanking doctors and fans following the attack.
Zolciak shared details about the incident in an interview with People magazine, when the 39-year-old confirmed that it was a family dog named Sinn who had bit Kash.
"Our dog Sinn is heavily, heavily trained. Kash is his favorite. It made absolutely no sense to any of us. This is nothing I ever thought I'd be dealing with in my life," she said.
According to Zolciak and Biermann, Sinn bit Kash while they were playing outside because the dog was uncomfortable and scared of a leaf blower.
The couple have also said they are keeping Sinn at their home under new rules and supervision due to Kash's love for the dog.
"If Kash ever looked at me and said that he didn't want to be around Sinn or showed any hesitation, then he wouldn't be here," Zolciak said.
"We love Sinn, he's part of our family, but our children will always come first without a doubt."
