She lost a leg AND an ear.

Plusalso, I posted this on the osteo thread but wanted to share here too. Last weekend, we met up with some local greyhound owners who found us on Instagram. They lost one boy to osteo last year, but they still have 5-year-old and 13.5-year-old (!) boys. Their dad took this video. Willa showed all those boys—including her brother—what's what.

The boys never listen so they wouldn't even realize an ear was missing!  Faith uses hers to fly though over the sofa so she may notice if she crashes.  

Go Willa!

:lol  That pic does look like one of those of a preserved baby goat fetus with significant birth defects.  

And what a great running space for Willa to show those boys how it's done!  What a beautiful girl she is -- both lying still and in action.  

 

PS:  You can tell Nate's dad that his whistle at least got two raised head responses here.  :)

Yes!  Here too.  My own Nate lifted his head in interest at the whistles and hearing his name. :lol
