Here's the deal.....some of you may have seen Maggie's youtube videos under "Hopping Around" where she balanced on a Buja board and trotted thru cavaletti's....those and other things are what I do for her PT work to help her strengthen herself now on 3 legs. I am a huge fan of Debbie Saunders of Wizard of Paws - see her website: http://www.wiza.....fpaws.net/ . I used to do agility with Maggie for over 8 years and Debbie's exercises were part of Maggie's PT to keep her fit in the winter. Now, with her on 3 legs, I've been doing some of that stuff with her again. I contacted Debbie by email a couple days ago and told her I thought her next DVD idea should address 3 legged dogs! I recently just watched her DVD on Osteoarthritis dogs and it's very good. Debbie thought this was a great idea and asked me if we could get enough 3 legged dogs together to make this dvd? Soooo...here I am...asking!! Any Northeastern folks on this list that would like to be involved? I'm guessing the filming would take place at Clean Run facility in South Hadley MA as that is where most of her dvd's are made. Let me know so I can tell Debbie!
