Lady has a bad leg. It has been getting progressively worse. She is an old girl of 14 years and the two medications she is on don't seem to be giving her much relief. In the last year we have shortened the length of her walk significantly. Unfortunately this has shortened Maggie's walk also. Might I add that Maggie needs her walks because she is a fatty. But it is really hard to leave one behind. Either way, one dog is missing out on something that they need. Lately I have had to carry Lady home. She would just stop walking and sit down on her sore leg.
So I decided to take the plunge into crazy and buy her a pet stroller. We gave it a whirl in the house and she seemed quite happy in it. Then Maggie wanted a turn and Lady followed along until it was her turn again. Today we took it out for a spin around the neighbourhood. I took Rob along in case I had troubles keeping Lady in it and managing Maggie on the leash at the same time. Well it went super smooth.
Now Maggie can enjoy some longer walks and Lady doesn't have to be left home alone away from the pack. It's a win win! I may be subject to some drive by mocking but I'm okay with that. I don't mind looking a little bit cray cray if it makes a better life for my pups. :)
