My first project with the new mill. I made a custom wheel chair for the old man. I hurt him last year and wanted to give him a nice suprise. Almost finished, have a couple of things to finish/make.
Materials Aluminum and Titanium

Your dog is very lucky to have an owner that cares enough about him to take the time to do something so nice for him.

Sleep a little

Play a little

Good looking project. He looks satisfied with it in the second photo.
Looks like some Corgi in his blood.

He seems very happy with his wheels. He is a full blooded Corgi in need of some grooming. I have been busy with the cart with all the fine tuning.

Does he lift his wheel to pee...... nice one.... you gave me a much needed laugh.

My goal was to make the cart as light weigh as I could. Est. weight 2-2.5#. Kept the CG as low a possible for stability on our uneven terrian at the house. The wheels are the heaviest part of the cart.
Thanks for the nice replies. He needs some time to rebuild lost musle mass for longer walks with the family.

I really think this (though difficult) is a decision only your family with perhaps advice from the vet can make. You guys will be on hand to moniter his situation on a daily basis and see if he thrives like this. I have seen dogs that do, and live on without complaint.But as A K said if he is suffering beyond all sound reason, then you have to make the tough decisions I am afraid we all need to make with our pets, from time to time.I too ,(and I am a big guy) have cried walking out of the vets office with an empty collar and lead.I do hope you get through this one and come out smiling.Some dogs adapt very easily others just don't thrive with such a handicap.I am afraid that you guys need to see what is going on in the dogs mind,psyche,,with the new alterations to normal life. I wish you every success . Alistair.
