Unusual Dog Walk--Awesome Demonstration of Love toward a Paraplegic Dog.

This is not a GSD but I thought it demonstrates possibilities in the face of seeming impossibilities.

What a nice video! That zip line is a great idea.

I have my own story too. One of my dogs, Asja (pronounced "ass-yaa"), lost a leg from osteosarcoma when she was 12.5 years old. She hopped around pretty well on three legs for a long time, but towards the end of her life, she had trouble walking. I got a garden cart, and took her for rides on it. She loved that cart! Whenever she saw it, she got all excited and wiggled her way onto it, waiting for her ride. I took her for rides around the neighborhood, and also drove her to the park she loved. She died when she was 13.5. One day she just stopped breathing.

Gosh Asja, that is so touching. Thank you for sharing your story. I think it takes a special kind of people to show that special kind of love.

I am so sad Looise is not longer alive but succumbed to the spinal degeneration. This man is the ideal person to adopt a dog to. The story really touched my heart, too. He gave his dog 6 more years of experiencing love after he rescued him from being a bait dog. I love people like this.

What a sweet soul you are for devising that cart for Asja's final year.
