Diaries: 3 Legged Dogs



Most times, it is very easy to go down the path of thinking that every single thing in every aspect of my life has to be how I would prefer it to be in order for me to be happy.

I have been looking at dogs with three legs over the past few days. These are dogs who have lost a leg.

I admire how they get back up, play just like any other dog, some times learn to run faster and jump higher than before!

Losing something that helped them so much to balance and move around doesn't stop them from being happy and going forward☺ And it can be that way for me too in different aspects of life.

Hope your week is going great♥ Thoughts?

Love,
Summer
P.S. NO... That beautiful dog in the photo is not my sweetie Charlotte- if you are wondering♥

  1. kind of like people in that - if you have an illness you need to wrap your mind around it and then get yourself together to do the best that you can do

  7. That is a great way to looking at life. I saw one the other day that had quite the sparkle in his eyes and seemed so happy it just brought a smile to my face.

  8. My brother had a three legged dog once, and he did just about anything he wanted to. Yes, we can be like that also, we shouldn't let difficulties hinder our faith and keep us from growing and living the life we are so blessed with.
    Thanks Summer for visiting and leaving your kind comments on my blog.

  9. I like how you tied in the story of the 3-legged dog to being able to move on and still live life, in spite of whatever it is that slowed you down for a bit. A lovely thought for the day... Happy Fall to you :)

  10. its true, the 3 legged dogs really don't realize, I think, that they are missing one. They go on so good and try to do everything. ~Lisa

  11. Summer, it always amazes me to see a dog who has just lost a limb, able to get up and get going right from the start. I just lost a few toes and it took me months to walk right again. Our beautiful Golden had such bad hips at the end that it was hard for him to get up without the use of his front legs, then when he got bone cancer in one of his front legs we had to put him down. Had he not needed those legs so much, we would have had a 3-legged dog also. With all that said, I'm glad that little beauty isn't your Charlotte..Happy Thursday..Judy

  13. sorry.........I typed too fast.......then my cat jumped onto the keyboard and posted for me.......without me being ready. I meant to say how wonderful your lesson is for all of us. I have often seen 3 legged dogs who run just as fast as my Sophie who has all of her limbs...I am always in awe of things like that. Just loved your comparison!

  15. This is so true.. Losing something that's treasured and useful can sometimes cause us to grow beyond what we thought possible. I'm reading a book about Walt Disney and he had so many obstacles to overcome to achieve his dream. He was a remarkable in his ability to use a loss to catapult himself forward. Very thought provoking. Thank you for sharing and thank you for your visit and kind words. Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. A great way to look at life. It's so easy to let something get us down, but when we see others, including dogs, living full lives with less, we stop having a pity party and get up and live. Thank you for a beautiful demonstration of this lessn.
