A very kind dog mom has asked us to post this generous donation here.
Her dog Lola had a custom Eddie’s Wheels cart made before she passed on. She was not a Tripawd but needed front-end support because of her bad leg, so she used the same type of card that a Front-leg Tripawd could use. Lola’s mom would like to donate it to a family in financial distress. Please keep in mind the cart will need to be modified by Eddie’s Wheels for the next lucky dog who gets to use it.
Here is what Lola’s Mom told us.
It measures 17″ high and 9 1/2″ wide inside. Eddie’s wheels made it for me and they would be happy to make any adjustments.
My girl Lola was approximately 52-55 lbs when was using it. She had terrible arthritis in her front legs.Shortly after we got it for her she ruptured a disc in her spine and lost the use of her back legs as well. So we added the back wheels.
I hope another dog will enjoy it and have an improved quality of life. My only request is that is continues to be passed on to other dogs and families in need….. my Lola’s legacy.
Please Private Message us if interested and we will connect you with Lola’s family.
NOTE: PLEASE READ THIS POST ABOUT TRIPAWDS AND WHEELCHAIRS FIRST. Thanks!
