When you think you have it rough…

June 18, 2010

When you think you have it rough, perhaps it is important to take a look at my buddy Sage.  Sage is one happy, loving, sweet canine.  Sage lives on a farm with several horses that have been rescued and often runs in the field with them and lies in their paddocks.  I really think she thinks she is a horse sometimes.  The amazing thing about Sage is that she only has 3 legs; however, I sometimes don’t think she knows this. Not that she is ignorant of this fact– simply that she doesn’t let this lack of a limb stop her from doing most anything the rest of us pups do, including getting into the garbage.  You know, I have frequently heard the saying that “when you feel that you have it bad, take a look around, because it could be worse”.  Just the other day, I was complaining because I had an infection in my ear from swimming in the lake, then my favorite toy had to be thrown out because it was destroyed from playing tug.  Then I saw Sage and realized this isn’t so bad, at least my ear will get better and I can get another toy, she will never get her fourth leg back.  And you know what?  I don’t think she even cares that she only has three legs.  She sure doesn’t let it stop her from doing anything.

I guess the moral is appreciate what you have.  Life is going to throw us some curves, it is how we choose to manipulate and deal with those curves that are thrown at us that separates the puppy’s from the dogs or the kittens from the cats…. You get the idea.
