To have two toes amputated, a hysterectomy, and a tattoo on one of the most sensitive parts of your body, all on the same day.
To then have a device attached to your head that distorts your hearing, blocks your peripheral vision, and also prevents you from cleaning yourself.
In spite of this, to not feel sorry for yourself or blame anyone. To be cheerful and friendly.
That is the way of the dog, and it never ceases to impress me and inspire me.
