Paralyzed Lucy Rolls To The Top

Here's a happy tail that is sure to warm your heart: Back in August, a four year old rescue pooch named Lucy became the very first paralyzed dog in New Hampshire history to ascend Mt. Washington. It took six hours, but Lucy had plenty of support and encouragement along the way - her humans, Courtney and Justin, and her best canine pal, Topper, were on hand to help her complete the journey. Lucy was outfitted in a Walkin' Wheels doggie wheelchair from Handicapped Pets with her own custom licence plate. Have a look at the inspiring video of Lucy's climb:

WOW! What an inspiring video! YAY for Lucy, her fine uplifting spirit, her pal Topper (not THAT'S a true friend!) and her pupper parents who believed in her and cared for her all the way to the top. I've been to the top of Mt. Washington and recognized the sound of the never-ending wind. Was glad to see how Lucy was cuddled and watered and truly watched out for on her history-making climb to the summit. This is what it's all about, and proves out the message we've sent in our book, "Almost Perfect: Disabled Pets and the People Who Love Them." ( Lucy and her caregivers who had the love and courage to rescue her give us all hope and inspiration! Thanks for sharing this with the world. We're so happy and proud!
