Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.

Our Yin Yang Dogs

Nila's boy snapped this photo of the dogs napping while I was out yesterday. They are truly yin yang dogs, complementary opposites within a greater whole. Nila (13yo) had neck surgery last month for a glandular lump that had dangerously enlarged overnight, from walnut size to grapefruit size. She healed quickly, and except for periodic reminders of her severe spine and hip arthritis, she's back to acting like a puppy. While we don't know what the lump is (tissue too damaged for successful biopsy), as long as she's comfortable and happy, we're happy.

  1. Hi this yin and yang photo...and how true...opposites with a greater whole!

    Poor dear...bless her heart! I'm so glad to hear that she is feeling better and back to being herself again. I know exactly what you mean about her being comfortable and happy...then you are happy too! It's always difficult when one member in the family is not feeling well or needs surgery. Poor Rose too, they always seem to know and seem so lonely when the other isn't home.

    I am taking a break and catching up on blog reading for a bit before I'm back to stitching. Packages went out keep your eyes peeled.

    I'll talk to you soon...~Lisa ;-)
