Learning a better attitude — from a dog
Over the past six months I’ve learned a little wisdom from an injured dog.
On 22 Dec 2021, Cooper broke his back chasing squirrels that weren’t even there. Fortunately he didn’t sever his spinal cord and the veterinary conclusion was that it was probable that he’d recover some or even most movement. Eventually. Probably. But maybe not.
And in the meantime he was paralyzed from the midsection down. Not a twitch. Back legs, tail, all immobile and useless. He wasn’t in pain because he really couldn’t feel anything. Which was something.
