Two Legged Dog

I saw a little dog today with only 2 legs.  In place of his front legs were wheels attached to his upper body.  He was on a leash right next to another (4-legged) dog, completely keeping pace, wagging his tail and, I swear, smiling.

That silly little dog moved me to tears.  And I sent out a silent blessing to the people who kept him alive and joy-filled.

As my little hero marched by  I heard a tall, fit, super-muscular guy say, “What’s he got to be happy about?”  And he meant it.

So who’s worse off – the dog or that guy?  

I am so grateful today, for seeing that dog and for hearing that guy.  And for knowing, without a doubt,  which of them I’d rather hang out with.

with love,

    Good Morning Jenny,
    I think this is a great story and evocative image of a 2-legged dog. I would very much like to use this image in an online lecture course that I am creating, would that be ok with you? (v. happy to attribute to your blog if you wish?)
    Many thanks,

      Thank you Iain! It was nice to get your message. The image is one I actually found online and did not take the picture myself. Feel free to share my story and/or blog as you like. I’m curious to know, what sort of course are you developing?
      Take care,
