I have a bad back (6 surgeries so far). One day I was trying to walk my dog Roxy, I was in a little bit of pain but I figured that I could push through it as usual. We made it to the corner of our street when Roxy sat down and wouldn't budge. Here's me begging her Come on Rox! Lets go Rox. Please Rox!! She just sat and refused to move. The harder I tugged on the leash, the harder she pulled back against me. We made it 4 or 5 houses towards home when my entire lower back and legs seized up. All I could do was stand there and cry and wait for someone to come get me. How did Roxy know that I wouldn't be able to make it all the way around the block? I couldn't tell you but I'm sure she did.
I don't know how they know what they know. I'm just glad that they do. It makes us love them even more.
I'd like to thank your husband for his service and you for your courage. I'll keep the 3 of you in my prayers.
