Pets show us the way?

Posted March 11th, 2009 by Anthony

According to a news story, Ruby didn’t miss use of hind legs, in the San Francisco Chronicle, “As a UC Davis surgeon once said when asked about dogs and amputation, “People tend to humanize the loss of a limb and dogs don’t. As long as they aren’t in pain and doing the things they love to do, they’re happy. We don’t appreciate that ability in dogs; they adjust to their new lifestyle.””

I don’t know about you, but I consider my response to my disability as being rather human. In fact, I think human happiness, like dogs I guess, can, and often does, come from no pain and doing what we love. That pretty much describes my life as a wheelchair user.
