I believe that dogs come into our lives to teach us what it is we need to know. For most, it happens with our own pets. But for some, like Dukey and Addy, the lessons are more widespread. As a rescuer and photographer of pets, I’ve met many dogs over the years. Too many to count, but I’ve been lucky enough to experience extra special soulful connections with a few dogs.
Adalard is his name. The day may not be easy but we are fierce with determination. This entire network of helpers in the world, who are far greater than me. I am deeply saddened yet humbled by the beauty I see in the unity of many teams. We alone, do not create this, and we cannot always repair. But we LOVE just as fiercely as we fight. Know that. For certain. Adalard. Noble strength.
I’m almost 2 hours into my 3rd gallbladder attack since Saturday. The doc told me today that we need to get bloodwork & an ultrasound ASAP & in the next breath said she’s fairly certain the gallbladder needs to come out. Joy. Sent me off with a look of pity & instruction to stay away from fatty foods. (And if you’re a client reading this, just know there are some sick days in my very near future, starting now.)
