I met the most amazing woman, and the most amazing 3-legged dog, yesterday in the park coming back from a visit to the place I've come to call the fertility farm (alert! I am NOT fertility blogging, just mentioning where I was coming from is all). These two have a pretty amazing story, and, as it turns out, Scheki (the dog) and Lori (the human) were profiled in April on WCBS. Schecki is short for "Schekayanu," the Jewish blessing of gratitude for reaching a happy occasion.
Finding Schecki, a victim of a bombing most likely, in Israel was a happy occasion, explains Lori in the clip. She also says: "Scheki has taught us to have this strength and love of life and not to look at what we don't have, but rather look at what we do have in life, and embrace it with a passion and exuberance."
Amen (and woof) to that.
