We don’t know what caused this sweetheart’s injury. His spine was hurt; he could not stand. His legs were limp and useless, and someone had loosely tied them together; we don’t know why. It seemed he had a story to tell. At first, rigid with pain, he merely endured his initial assessment, but ate with so much relaxed enthusiasm that we named him Comfy.
Some time later, though, feeling a bit better, he let us know that perhaps we had named him “Comfy” too soon. He told us we were not welcome to touch him. He growled. He barked. And he kept it up for a while. We knew that without physiotherapy he might never walk again, but how could we manage it if he wouldn’t let us touch him?
Watch Comfy’s transition from paralysed and frustrated to becoming fully mobile, happy and…a comfy bundle of love. Kindness changes outcomes.
