Django gets new wheels
Paris....For 13 years Django got around better than most dogs his age and then due to a spinal vertebrae problem he could no longer walk and the only option except for a not highly recommended surgery was wheels....so his owners,Daniel and Solange, decided to try and see if Django could adapt to getting around with the aid of a chariot which suspended his hind legs and required him to use only his fore-legs to move him about...
They bought him a steel..light-weight city model which he adapted to in the first few days...the only problem was that, not surprisingly, Django preferred to take his long walks in the forest...Bois de Vincennes... and not in the city...however, the chariot was of too light construction and tipped over easily on the bumpy eneven terrain....
The solution was to buy Django a second more heavily constructed off-road chariot which enables Djando, Solange and Daniel to take 2- hour walks nearly every evening in the park.
