While people around the States are having 4th of July parties, we are having a pity party at our house. Our dear yellow lab, Oscar, tore his ACL, had to get surgery last week, and then infected his wound from licking it. So he has been 'coned' by the vet. And he is rather unhappy about it.
I have tried to find some humor in the situation...his current state reminds me of one of my favorite paintings from the movie, Amelié. The Michael Sowa painting is called 'Kraker Hund', which I think translates to 'Filmhound'. Mr. Sowa has done some rather spectacular work, but this one is definitely one of my favorites!
Happy 4th of July to you. Have a great weekend!
