We get asked a lot of questions about Trimble and Twitch. We don’t mind one bit. It gives us the opportunity to tell people all about them and special needs dogs. We love educating everyone about Cerebellar Hypoplasia and what it means to be a service human. We want to advocate for every creature both animal and human that struggles in this world. We want to be there for every animal or human for acceptance in this strange society we live in. We just want to be there.
I was asked the other day why are we seeing so many dogs with Cerebellar Hypoplasia these days. The reason is a good one. People are realizing a very important thing.
THEY ARE NOT THROWAWAYS!!!
They- not unlike humans- are meant to live. They may wiggle- like a person with Cerebral Palsy. They may fall-like a person with muscular distrophy. They may need extra help- LIKE ANY PERSON WITH A DISABILITY!
They are still full of life, full of joy, full of love. They – not unlike humans- live a relatively normal life! They -not unlike humans with disabilities- are JUST LIKE REGULAR DOGS!
So… when I am asked what it wrong with Trimble & Twitch, my reply will always be- nothing. Absolutely nothing is wrong with them, but there is a whole lot of what is right with them. They are amazingly happy, amazingly strong, amazingly brave, and amazingly loving. Every single person on this little rock in our universe could learn a lesson. Perfect, whole, complete does not equivocate to ok-ness. It is what is within you, what fires you up, your soul, your spirit, your heart- that makes you so beautifully imperfectly perfect.
….and stop asking what is wrong with my dogs….cuz we gonna have a little talk about that!
