30 Days of Giving Thanks - Day 15

30 days of Giving Thanks

I am thankful for our dog - our beloved family pet.

Our dog, Emma, is a 7.5 year old Airedale Terrier. She's a big ol' sweet girl; loving and mostly lazy. We are still dealing with problems from her serious injury in late September. She tore ligaments in both back knees from a fall and was unable to walk. Surgery on the right knee was done right away and in the next month or two, she will have to have surgery on the left knee. It's been a stressful and costly ordeal and I'm not sure that she will ever be the same as far as her mobility is concerned. But, she is still happy and full of love. She wants to be right with us all the time and is a huge part of our family. I'm thankful that my kids have grown up with a wonderful pet that brings us such joy.
