A Friday Happy Thread
 
This is Rascal. His is our 5ish year old Daschsund. He lost the use of his legs due to a back injury when we were out of the house. An 11 year old friend of our oldest son had a lemonade stand and raised $600 for Rascals care. Through treatment, he got the use of his legs back for almost a year. Recently, he lost the use again and this time, he did not respond as well to treatment and though he regained partial usage, he still can barely walk.

So, we ordered him some wheels. This was his maiden voyage as a roller Daschsund.

Looks good! I actually spent an hour online last night looking at similar products. Our 14 year old dog has Canine Degenerative Myelopathy and is quickly losing his ability to use his rear legs. He can no longer climb stairs and falls whenever he tries to make a quick turn. In any event, it's nice to know that the maiden voyage went so well.

You should get him a little blinky light for the bar at the back. :)

Rascal is a boy and he would need a 99 Foo jersey.

This happened to our dog last summer too, caused by a ruptured disk in the spine. I opted for surgery, which was a complete success. The surgeon said that he does one or two of these procedures a week. I want to sell him something, he has lots of cash to spend!!! If you want your dog back, without the trailer, think about the surgery.

When are the aftermarket rims, underbody neon, and the spoiler going on?
