I'm A Miracle by Ginny York

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

This is my Staffordshire Bull Terrier I call Miracle. The reason for that being his name is because it really is a miracle that he is alive. His mother Lily had gone a day past her due date and so off to the Emergency Clinic I went. Of course it was a Holiday Weekend! At least they had a Sonagram machine. They were able to get just one heartbeat…even though they thought they saw two bodies. Since she was definately due…and the one form with the heartbeat was so large…it was decided to do a C-section. Miracle was huge and I was told he would not have made it out on his own due to his size. He was in one horn. In the other was a partial puppy that was being reabsorbed due to an infection. This all happening to his mother Lilly who showed NO signs of feeling bad at all. Such tuff little dogs. In any case…I am not sure how or why Miracle was not affected by the infection. As you can see…he is a beautiful healthy young boy…..and so the name Miracle became his. This was taken on the little deck in my yard in Amherst, Virginia with my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. He was bred by me…but you might as well say I bought him. And he was expensive too. :))

  • LOL A minute after I took this he was running all around like a crazy dog….down the ramp and up the stairs and down again and around the tree about 100 miles an hour. lol Then he would run back up and stand here looking like a goof ball for a minute and then do it all again. Too funny!
