uma


stephen and i love dogs, that's no secret. something you may not know is that we LOVE great danes. in fact, we are hoping to adopt one in the near future (by "near" i mean as soon as we're out of our apartment...which might not be as near as you are thinking, ha). we might already have a name picked out and everything. so when i saw these pictures on sharon montrose's blog, my heart skipped a beat. this is uma, and she had to have her leg amputated because of cancer. despite her three-leggedness, she looks so beautiful and joyful!! actually, i think the absence of her leg may give her that much more character. isn't she just beautiful??

thought that might put a smile on your face this monday morning.

what a touching story...
Inspiring as well~ I used to own a blind doggy, she had inspired me to be a better person~

my husband and i are in the same boat... looking to adopt a dog once we have more space. i LOVE great danes too... but my husband is more of a medium sized dog lover... i hope i win :)
