What is the hardest thing about having wheels?
I try not to look at having wheels as being difficult. I am so glad companies like Eddie's Wheels make wheelchairs for dogs, so I can have my freedom. To be honest, there really is nothing hard about having my wheels. I can get around so much better and faster than if I didn't have them. Even though my legs don't work so well, I'm so happy I can get around with the help of tires.
