I have been trolling this site all day, waiting to see Bailey's new wheels!  It brought such a SMILE to my face and day to see him doing so well!  He's so good, so strong, so patient.  And what a patient indeed!  Congrats, Bailey!  Your look great!  Jackson and I are so happy for you! 

I'd love to see a still picture of the support system, maybe with Bailey in it (of his tummy?) and out of it?  It's hard to tell from the video 'how it works', although however it's working, it IS working!  Horay!

ACL tear in right hind leg 12/5/12 and scheduled ACL repair surgery 12/21/12. Pre-op xrays revealed osteosarcoma. Amputation 12/28/12.  Chemo (carboplatin) started Jan 10, 2013 and ended on April 5, for a total of 5 doses. He handled carbo like a champ!  No side effects.  We started metronomic therapy at his third chemo and have been also doing some holistic treatments.  He's a lively, playful 10 year old huskie-boarder collie and a very proud member of the Winter Warriors!  Our love. Our funny little guy!

Hey- can he poop in that rig?  Again....he looks great! My heart is all filled with warm fuzzies to see him doing so well!

He'll go lots faster when you add the flames on the sides! 

Bailey is looking really great! What I'm finding most unreal about this is how he is taking to it without complaint or rebellion. At that age, I would figure he'd give you a look that said you were nuts. All of my older dogs would have done that. Bailey must have an exceptional temperament. It's no wonder you want to make his life so full and fun.

From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

HA!  I'll have to "pimp his ride" once summer's here so he can really show off. 

 

He DOES have an exceptional temperament.  He's always been a very loving and kind-hearted dog.  He and I are very bonded and we are a great support system for each other.  He loves my husband too, but Bailey and I were pretty much made for each other.  He avoids my terribly ADHD son winker, but is still always friendly to him when cornered.  His "defense" is to lick him until he goes away.

He hasn't tried yet, so I'm not sure!  I suppose we'll find out one of these days.

Holy smoke did I see flames shooting out the back? Bailey is tearin' up the sidewalk! Wow!

This is so sweet to see, I love how he just goes and goes, he has a lot of energy for 13. Amazing! Thank you so much for sharing.
