HAILEY’S WHEELS FOR LIFE         wheels
Sometimes a dog loses use of the back legs but are otherwise healthy.  These wheels (carts) can make all the difference.

Marcia heard about Charlie’s back legs and has a friend who heads a cause known as Hailey’s Wheels for Life.  His name is Matt and he helped us get a wheelchair for Charlie — thanks to Marcia and her fundraising.  He took his first run — and I mean run — last evening.  He ran to some neighbors walking by and I couldn’t keep up with him. He seemed very happy and at ease.  Ultimately, it did not go too well and I took him out of the wheelchair and returned home to get his stroller.  Peg, my friend, was holding onto him until I returned.  It turns out he had to poop and that is why I think he didn’t want to walk today very much!  I will not rush this, but we will gradually get him going.  I am so thrilled that he can run again and he seems so happy to do so.  Thank you so much Marcia and Matt for your help in his rehabilitation.  The cause, Hailey’s Wheels For Life, is a non profit entity providing subsidized wheelchairs for dogs in need.* (*Subject to qualifying conditions)
