something happened to minnie pearl while i was at work today. i left a totally crippled and messed up dog who thought she was absolutely fine in every way and came home tonight to a totally crippled and messed up dog who is suddenly aware of how messed up she really is.
she looks sad!, she keeps looking at her back end and wondering why it is sinking to the floor...and she cannot figure out why it is suddenly leaking, this seems to really bother her.
she looks worried...she looks vulnerable..minnie pearl is the least vulnerable creature i have ever known.
she is fiesty, she is haggy, she is demanding and determined. who is that frail and weak little thing that i just carried to the soft bed at my feet...who looks so ashamed of her weakness???
oh pearly..how did you grow so ancient and aware of your broken frailness in just a few hours?
minnie pearl has always had incredible faith that all was well within and around her...and somehow in the last few hours, i think her body and spirit took one step too close to the end of the road..does she see it sweeping down upon her?
tonight it is like her heart too has now broken.
maybe a good nights sleep and she will feel more like her powerful true self tomorrow....?????
hope floats...we love you minnie pearl.
