My husband and I don't have kids, and our dogs are our kids. Our 11 year old Cocker Spaniel woke up one morning unable to walk. We found out she ruptured a disc and would be handicapped for the rest of her life. We were so depressed the entire week before receiving the dog wheel chair, wondering how we would be able to handle the situation. We had to carry her outside to use the bathroom and hold her up so she wasn't laying in it, carry her to her food bowl, basically carry her anywhere she needed to go. After the wheel chair got here, we realized everything would be OK. She is able to get around on her own, go outside to do her business and will be able to lead a fairly normal life. We just wanted to thank your company for giving us hope again. Dog wheel chairs were the best thing ever invented and we can't thank you enough!
