    About a week ago, my little 4 legged fishing partner (4 year old Dachshund) came down with another bout of back problems. Been working on a 2 wheel cart for her so she can still get around. Still got some modifications to do, but so far she's able to get around some in the house. Vet has her on meds and does not know how long or if she will ever recover use of her back legs again. When I catch fish out of the tank, she likes to bite them on the tail, then looks at me like "OK you can turn it loose now". When I brought the big blue up to her, she wasn't real sure about that since it was a lot bigger than she was.

    I found another cart design that put less weight on her back and supported her back feet better. She runs around the house now like nothing's wrong. She does not seem to have any pain associated with the problem and is getting along real well. Only time will tell if she gets any use back in her legs.

    Hopefully she'll make a full recovery... But in the mean time that's great what you've been able to do

    Got her into her "2010 Model" car just off the showroom floor, it works a lot better than previous models. She is making some improvements as to being able to put some weight on her back legs and getting some feeling back.
