Finally got a pic with Homer & Cubby looking at the camera.....wellllll sorta! Homer was just a bit tired😂 But on a serious note, being able to walk Homer and his little tripod brother Cubby means everything to me, and I want to try to explain to you guys why. I am 20 yrs old and suffer from severe chronic back pain and nerve damage, caused by an accident when I was 15 years old in which I was riding an ATV at 70mph, when the worst happened. The front right tire clipped a ditch and before I knew it, I was airborne about 15 feet in the air. When I landed, I was hardly bruised up, thinking I’d be fine since I was a tri-athlete at the time. I looked behind me to see the four wheeler rolling down the hill on its side at me, only to stop rolling by the tire landing on my hip. Fast forward past ambulance rides, airlift helicopter rides, countless X-rays, and so much confusion from the doctors, I found out my pelvis was split in half, both my hips were fractured, and my back had four breaks in the lower lumbar region. Why am I telling you all of this? Well, I’m telling you this because if it wasn’t for this job motivating me physically to keep moving years after failed rehabs and constant limping, then I would not be as strong as I am today. Knowing there is precious animals and their loving owners depending on me to give their animal the best care, gets me out of bed every day, even when I feel like I can’t go on much longer from the constant pain. Walking Cubby has been a daily reminder that there’s always gonna be shitty situations, but it’s how you pick yourself back up that really changes the trajectory of your life. Look at this puppy as the daily reminder that I do every time I see his face — KEEP GOING.
