My old dog has finally lost the use of her back legs. I never thought I'd be someone who puts their dog in a cart, but her condition is not painful, and she still has such interest in life and in doing things. I just can't see putting down a dog who still has so much zest for life. Her only problem is boredom and frustration because she can't get around! So, the cart comes this week and she'll go for her final fitting on Monday. Does anyone else out there use a support cart? I'm a bit nervous, because I was talking to a lady who uses one for her dachshund and she says I need to be ready for all sorts of unsolicited comments from strangers making judgements about the decision I've made. Apparently she's had people come up to her on the street to tell her what a horrible thing she's doing! I don't know how well I'll deal with that - I'm not too shy to tell people off but it's such an emotional thing for me I'm afraid I'll start crying!
