Walking her wheels up the mountain

Lucy’s record stands unbroken. She is the “first and only dog in a wheelchair to reach the summit of Mount Washington” in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

If you saw only the front legs of this intrepid canine, the relaxed, normal stance could fool you. But Lucy’s back legs are paralyzed. Without her Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair, she’d be limited to how far she could drag herself.

The intrepid canine was hit by a car when still a puppy and lived two years at the Second Chance Animal Rescue in Puerto Rico. Now she lives in New Hampshire and even has her own Facebook page.
