I mean after all…nobody wants to be judged by their age, looks, or disability, right? Sadly, they are…every day, in every way. I hate it.

Families love their children, despite their disabilities or diseases; Significant others love each other despite bad hair days, funny noses, ears, or acne; Children adore their grandparents, despite the slow movements and wrinkles. I love the disabled, overlooked, and geriatric in the animal world for the same reasons. Reasons such as this….
