We did it! Finally after much searching we found suitable wheels for our Lylee. I'll post on her blog with more pics how it all worked out. But here is a quick shot i took the day we got it (off Craigslist)
Seriously cool that we got one for her - just sorry we didn't do it sooner!

How darling she looks in there! How does she like it? How does she manuver steps?

Golden retriever, diagnosed with osteosarcoma in September 2010 — right front leg amputated November 2010. He fought valiantly to stay with us; but a second diagnosis of osteosarcoma, this time in his left front leg, was more than our golden warrior could overcome. He loved his pack — and everyone else he met.
We loved him even more. Thanks for the pennies, Sammy. They helped.

Lylee looks so snug; the girl is certainly ready to roll! How did your first stroll go? Is this a dog stroller or a human one?
Baby is 155# with three legs- WOW!!!!!! However did you guys cope immediately after the amp? You must be seriously strong!
OK- chariot races at the next Nor Cal Tripawd meet up!!! Although with those big wheels you have an advantage over the pug stroller and Shelby's red wagon! And my knees aren't what they used to be!
How exciting for Lylee! Looks like she has taken to it just fine. Now she has to work on her Queen Mum wave!

Oooo, chariot races - good idea, Karen! We'd consider a trip up to Nor Cal to see that!
Have fun, Lylee!

I think she needs decorative pinwheels added to the cart. Or, maybe some streamers?

Awesome Lylee!!! Do you actually stay in it? Miss Pegz loves the walk....but gets mad at her Mom for making her turn back before Monkey Chaz has to turn back. SHe wants to go all the way with him, but it is a little too far and one time we had to carry her and it was not pretty. Very undignified for a warrior princess.
I am afraid she will always try to jump out along the route. What do you think?

What's the word I'm looking for........?
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Oh, Lylee you are absolutely styling in your new buggy. Daisy is getting one (waiting for the tax refund) and I'm hoping after I spend all that money she will actually ride in the thing. She's kind of weird when it comes to anything "different".
Marla and Daisy
Spirit Daisy was diagnosed w/destroyed left elbow joint, became a Tripawd Dec 2011
Biscuit was found hanging in a rabbit snare, became a Tripawd Jul 2014.
