A gift

From my first moments of wakefulness this morning, I knew that K was bouncing back. We headed out for a hike in the fresh fluffy snow and intense sunshine, and she sparkled with happiness. Look at those happy eyes!
Yesterday, she trudged along next to me. Today, she explored and even ran a little bit.
She dug for treasures hidden under the snow.
It was a good day in our new journey. That's the best gift that I can imagine.

Hi Y'all,

I am once again in tears, this time HAPPY tears for you both. K looks stunning in these photos. Our dogs are soooo resilient. After my Gracie was attacked by 3 pit bulls a couple years ago I thought it would be weeks before she was up to a walk or ride in the car. To my complete amazement, it took only a couple days and she was back (not at full throttle) but she was back. I think it was part of her healing---get up and get going, and to be with her mum. You are the best medicine for K and she for you!! Blessings my friend, blessings. :)

We are so happy that K is rebounding. Hope her strength and energy will return more every day. Does she have more treatments to come? When? We're keeping our paws crossed for her. And we know she is treasuring every day, just as you are.

That bandana is great. What a nice thing for them to pass out to patients. I'm glad a good day of rest paid off in her energy level. I've been meaning to ask. Is that lump we see on her front leg the tumor, or is that just a hematoma from all the needle sticks?

Nubbin' Tails said...

So glad you had such a great day!

Hope you have more!

Wags!
