Only time we put our dog, with a comfy pillow, on a wheelburrow, .....our dog was getting onto being 16 yrs of age, and had some creeping paralysis, so we used to push him around in a wheelburrow. He loved it. Perplexed as he didn't know what was going on with his own back legs, poor diddums. In the end, the paralysis went up to his front legs and then it was awful. He was being looked after and fed but it was cruel, I couldn't let him suffer, in fact, I cancelled the vet a couple of times, as I couldn't go through with it, but in the end, it was obvious he had to be put down. (We don't even do that kindness to humans!)
The vet said, it's a shame, as he seems very 'with it' in mind. I miss him, was a wonderful blue healer. Lived a good life on the property.
everything working correctly but his back legs failed totally never to work again
all in the space of a couple of days
his tail was still wagging this morning but had to be hand fed and given water in a cupped hand
other lab is pining already after a lifetime together
It took a couple months for it to go from almost bad to really bad. Sorry to hear your is going through that. I still miss our dog and was actually talking about him today to one of the gals in our bus tour group. It’s nice to be able to talk about your family dog’s life and the antics they got up to. Memories keep them close to your heart.
