I was down town yesterday it was very busy and a glorious summer like day, but i saw something (twice) i've never seen before, two different people pushing dogs in a pram, does this happen everywhere ? What is the world coming to when people take their dog out for a walk in a pushchair, its been suggested the dogs may not be able to walk, if that is the case is a visit to the vet not a better solution ?

A few years ago, the Chaplain at St James's Palace had two dogs, one very old. When he took them out for a walk, the old one rode in a specially made little buggy, while its young companion used to trot alongside. Like us, they sometimes need a little extra help in their winter years. :D

Where have you been, I've missed your contributions?

No sign of dog shyte there Andy ... but have a go at all the fag ends laying on the pavement.

Bloody littering smokers :x they should cop a 2 hundred quid fine for dumping them on the street.

They are one of the biggest littering problems on the planet.

I have a friend with 5 dogs. One is the size of a horse & she walks them at 4.30am each morning so she can let them off the leash in the nearby park to have a bit of a run.
But one of the little dogs is old and loves to walk to the park but is too tired on the walk home so she has a baby sling and carries him.
Maybe it is similar with the prams, the dogs walk a little way then get helped?

Most dogs would not want to sit still in a pram so I can only assume the dog isn't 100% well.
No, I have never seen it done here.

5 dogs? Really? In most places I know unless you are a breeder you can't have anymore than 2 dogs on the premises in residential neighborhoods.

Is your friend breaking the local council by-laws? Sounds like it.

That sounds a bit cruel. A coat on a cold day maybe but not on a hot day!!

Must be something wrong with the dogs in pushchairs, as most dogs benefit from a good walk and exercise.
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.

Danet, it is no wonder dogs get called man's best friend, their loyalty and love can be 100%. That would be very unusual from another human. :D
