wordless wednesday (almost)

So I'm cheating on the "wordless" part a little bit here, to tell you that even though these aren't the cutest pictures ever taken of Simba, they're glad ones, because they show him walking after his injury. The right-hand one, in particular, shows him using his right hind foot, which is his least recovered one. If he walks on flat ground with good traction, you almost wouldn't know that he isn't 100%. It just takes some unevenness or slickness, though, to send his back end swiveling and sometimes going out from under him.

He's an incredibly good sport about it all, though. Just picks himself up and keeps doing what he was doing. No visible signs of discomfort. We should all be so stoic!

Hey, dog lovers! This Sunday night, we can expect to see lots of canine hijinks over at Weekend Dog Blogging at Sweetnick's place. Head on over for head shots, tummy shots, jump shots and what nots!

Follow the links in the sidebar to lots more wordless wednesdays. This is #27!

There's also a link in the sidebar if you'd like to read the series of posts about Simba's spinal cord injury.

It's good to see him up and about. The road to recovery gets shorter every day.

I saw a dog who had an accident with a moving vehicle and ended up having his hind legs removed. He now uses a wheeled contraption, but doesn't seem to mind a bit. He didn't even act like he knew it wasn't part of his body. I think dogs care less than we think about stuff like that. We attribute feelings to them that they may not actually have.

(All that to tell you not to worry. :)
