Hi All ~

Cassie, Murphy’s bestest friend, has been having a hard time lately.  Back in April she was diagnosed with arthritis in her back and a couple of bulging discs.  We’ve done steroids, muscle relaxer & anti-inflammatory meds along with laser treatment, but she’s having a harder and harder time walking and getting up.  Of course we’re using the shopping bag trick, and I’ve gotten some funny reactions from the vets…  How clever we are!  clapBut I thought if anyone had the Help ’em up harness they weren’t using, I would buy it from you.   Murphy’s Ruffwear harness doesn’t really help much, and he was a little bit smaller than Cassie.  From their website, it looks as though she could probably wear a medium or a large.  She weighs about 65lbs.

Thank you!

Donna I hope you find one. If I hear of anything I’ll let you know. I’m sorry Cassie’s having a ruff go of things right now. Got my fingers crossed things will get better soon.

We found one for sale on Facebook.  It had only been worn once sadand they actually just lived right around the corner from us.  They also had a ramp for the car, so we bought that too (we’re using that outside right now to help her get from the deck to the yard a little easier).
