'We should judge people on the soul they bring to the world and not the physical appearance."
I say that kind of thing to my kids. They've grown up hearing this: Don't put so much stock in how you or others look because even the good
attributes will fade with age or can be lost. What never fades is the quality of one's heart and that's where real beauty lies.
Getting all emotional in my old age. But I thought it was a great story nonetheless. I love animals and people, even though I may disagree with people
quite often. But you can pretty much tell how a animal is by it's reaction to you. And it is a honest reaction.
Teeth bared...stay away.
Down low, ears relaxed, tail wagging (if it's a dog) and it's just coming up to say hi. I don't know why, I just seem to have more empathy with
animals than I do people. For some odd reason, they seem to like me. The feeling is mutual.
lol! It's okay--I'm old, too. Totally relate to the animal and people thing fully. I shocked my daughter the other day when I admitted that I
understood our cat better than both her and her brother combined sometimes. Animals wear their feelings out in the open. People, on the other hand,
are a little more ambiguous and duplicitous--unfortunately.
She recovered from the blow but it gave her a shocked laugh.
I have seen other animals minus a limb, even two limbs without a prosthetic and they don't let anything get them down, they walk and run anyway. I
noticed this dog didn't always rely on the prosthetic. Maybe it is still new to him. Animals are amazing and beautiful and our world is blessed to
have them. Thanks for sharing this!
