Sometimes creativity isn’t about what you make, it’s about how you solve problems. And Houston, we had a problem.
Our dog Kramer is 15 (16 in May) and over the last year or so has become somewhat of a challenge. His mobility is not what it used to be, and neither is his bladder. A daily dose of Proin has helped to solve the bladder issue, but the mobility is still not so good, even with medication to help with pain and inflammation.
Kramer has always liked his walks, and still does. The problem is getting him from our fourth floor condo down to the street in a timely (see bladder issue, above) and stress-free manner. I feel so bad pulling him along, knowing he’s doing the best he can, and also knowing if I don’t get him out post-haste, he might have an accident in a public place in our building.
The time had come for a different solution:
This sexy little number was purchased at Target and put together by my dear husband. Kramer doesn’t like it all that much but I keep a steady stream of kibble flowing and he stays in it pretty well. Sometimes I even catch him hanging out around the wagon looking for stray treats. I use it to roll him outside of the building, then take him out so he can get his regular walk in down on the street.
