My Lincoln

I am convinced that animals make the world go round, they make our lives a little bit calmer and a little bit kinder, and make people remember to stop and smell the roses. This is my cocker spaniel, Lincoln and he is 8 years old. He was 6 weeks old when I got him in college and that could have been the best day of my whole life. It's amazing how a dog can change your life in so many positive ways. I know that Lincoln has been taking care of me probably more than I've taken care of him. He is my best friend. So... now we are here. And my Lincoln had to have back surgery -- due to a flipped disc on his spinal cord, which has led to his back legs being paralyzed. We won't know for a few days if he will be able to walk again, but there is an 80% recovery rate. Please say as many prayers and send warm wishes to Mr. Lincoln.
