  • This. This is what levels me: the sight of a three-legged dog. Every time. Just look at him. Look at any three-legged dog that crosses your path. He's happy to be walking with his favorite person. She's happy to be playing with other dogs, oblivious to her own personal struggle to do so. Unaware of how much better or easier it could be. Not pining for what was, or how it should be. Just happy to be.
