Astrid: Blind, Deaf, and Loving Life
I wanted to try a Wordless Wednesday post for tomorrow morning (it’s Tuesday night now), but Astrid deserves a little explanation. My incredibly inspiring friend is adopting her despite the following:
- She is completely blind.
- She is completely deaf.
- She is about 13.
- She has a rare, incurable cancer.
And Astrid is a totally pleasant and loving little being, who cruises around like she owns the world, despite the following:
- All of the above.
- She was found wandering in a park, close to death.
- She has to learn new surroundings by bumping her head into things.
I mean this is a happy dog. And a very lucky one. Here she is cuddling away in a new bed and sweater today.
