Charlie and Lacey are 15 years old now

We rescued Charlie and Lacey a year ago when they were 14 years old and could not walk. We gave them superior nutrition to give them strength, Sun Chlorella to boost their immune system, and acupuncture, massage therapy, cold laser, chiropractic, and water therapy to keep them pain free and mobile. It worked, and for the last year they have been walking, running, and smiling from ear to ear.

Unfortunately, we knew it would not last forever. We have had a glorious year of health and strength, but their arthritis and age has finally caught up with them and they just started having problems with their hind legs again. They are having trouble getting up by themselves and walking. So, we ordered them both wheelchairs this week. Thankfully their front ends are very strong, they have great appetites, and are very healthy otherwise, so they are perfect candidates for wheelchairs. Hopefully the wheelchairs will help them be more active, mobile, and happy. We want to give them the best life possible now that they are with us, and a living apology for the 14 years of neglect they had in their backyard alone.

When the chairs arrive, we will let you know how they like them and how it’s working. However in the meantime, Charlie and Lacey will be here on Sundays if you want to come see them, give them a treat or a kiss, or just tell them how much they are appreciated and loved!
