Photo Dog Buggy

As promised, here is a photo of what I bought my dog - as cleverly guessed by WW!

I can't remember what I said in my post yesterday, but he has been rather poorly and the vet yesterday discovered he has a hernia which has meant that he couldnt poo!Shocked The vet 'popped' it back into place and rectally examined him (sorry if tmi!) and that did the trick alright, but by the time we'd come back home it had popped out again. Later, after supper, he was in the same sorry state and my inner vet had to take over and I managed the popping in myself, so he could perform - poor little chap! I don't know how long we can carry on like this, but due to his partially collapsed trachea the vet doesnt think he'd survive an op for the hernia.

Anyway, Em rushed over to see him in case he got worse and we took him out in his buggy to walk round Painshill Park and he really seemed to enjoy it - all those different sights and smells that he can't partake of because he can't walk very far at all without bringing on his breathing problems.

Westerwitch's Avatar So sorry that Yorkie is not having a great time at the moment - but as long as he is enjoying life then good that he can get out and about in his buggy for a good sniff at the air.

I am not sure what to think, not sure I would feel comfortable pushing the buggy around - but if it helps the poor thing have a better quality of life, then its a good thing.

I only owned one dog of my own, although we had dogs growing up. He too was a small dog, a Papillion. I have always been a walker, and after 5 miles or so he would go on strike, lay down and that would be it - he was pooped. I would stick him in my duffle coat pocket, or in the top of my day bag (small rucksack) . People always thought it looked so cute, and its no different really to the buggy.

Faith's Avatar I know it looks a bit weird, and I do have a carry bag for him, but both of us gets hot when he's in that and this is more comfortable for him.

Faith's Avatar Also I am at an age where I don't care what people think. Em, my daughter, aged 21 was happy to push him too. But of course he is our darling!

awwwwwVery Happy I bet he gets excited when he sees you get the buggy ready too. I miss having a pup. a few years ago, we watched three -two month old Pomeranians for some friends who were on holiday for a week. Gosh they were so fun.

Camilla's Avatar Aw, Faith, look at little Yorkie, he is such a sweetie, as you know I have a fondness for Yorkies.

Very good idea about the buggy Faith, this will at least not tire him and so much better than carrying him in bag, and he can see whats going on around him, bless him.
