Presenting, My Spankin' New Wheelies!

Just a sneak preview, I know my friends are all excited and happy for me.

I am improvising with a towel under my chin because my wheelies did not come with a headrest. But no worries, Eddie's Wheels already promised to take care of this little glitch and send me one very soon.

Check out my front stirrups

Check out the view from my back

All the discomfort I endured ( Mom measured me one too many times!) was all worth it because my wheelies fit well. Job well done, Eddie's Wheels!

Wait, did you just say Walkies?

My first time to take an evening walk in our street... I dedicate my first "step" in sweet memory of Scarlett, our friend Evie's dog.

Well, this is it, my dream is finally happening! My little heart is bursting with gratitude to Labrador Life Line Organization who assisted me financially in the purchase of my wheels; and especially to its kind volunteer Teri Askew, my hooman angel who made it possible for my little voice to be heard among throngs of desperate and needy animals.

I am very much thankful to my friends, old and new, whom I met through the internet and in the real world. Some of them helped me put up the remaining funds needed to purchase and ship my wheels:

Jeff Sullivan
Teddy and Mom

Lorenza and her Mom
Mango the Maltese Kiddo
Anne Fernandez
Ruby and Penny
LeeTal and her chihuahuas
River and his Mom
Belle's Mom
Moy,Jappy,Trudis, Bambi,Woody, and Pussy
Catherine, Lex and Snap
Aki, Poopie, and Manang
Piappies World
Asta fwom New Yowk
Jasper and Ruth
Caroline Wong
Siku Marie

While some unselfishly dedicated a page or spot in their websites to spread my story, sending donors and well wishers my way:

Poopie and Akie
Charlie the Spitz from Mandaluyong
Teddy the Poodle
Sundae on Pampered Pets
Life with Dogs

And the rest gave me much needed cheers and encouragement which got me and Mom going:

Wild Dingo
Prints the Cat
Hound Tooth
Scout and Freyja
Oz Girl
Amy from the House of Cats
Digby and Prinnie
Lancaster the Puppy

From the bottom of my heart, and in behalf of my family, I thank you all. We will be back to post pictures, visit your blog and reply to your wonderful comments as soon as my Mom gets over her excitement.

    My mom is crying and that is something she is not allowed to do right now due to her tooth surgery so she can't blow her nose! But... Yes!

  10. Oh Scarlet, seeing you walking on the street is the most beautiful thing we've seen in a long time! (I'm sure Scarlet Angel is smiling down at your from heaven). We're so glad your wheelies fit you well, and you're catching on so quickly. We thought there would be more of an adjustment period, but you're already mastering your wheelie walk just great!! ;) Be sure to give thanks to the Secretary who hoped and prayed for you to walk again, and who did a super job communicating your need and getting you measured just right!
