Spring Arrives at Eddie's Wheels and Mascots take a Stroll

Love this from Eddie's Wheels and what they had to say about their mascots Willa, Webster and Sweet Pea and pets with wheelchairs out for a stroll after a long winter.

"Just because you need wheels to get anyplace doesn’t stop a dog from being a dog.  This is a long video, taken yesterday, when the snow had finally receded enough to let the dogs find the yard again.   Here they are celebrating , sniffing and being dogs.   These are our dog family.  Willa and Webster in their front wheel cart, and Sweet Pea, our paralyzed pitbull, enjoying the coming of spring."

As you can see from the video dogs live in each moment, enjoying what is before them, not worrying whether they have wheels for legs or not... life is meant to be joyful and with all the fresh new smells of spring this should always give you hope that anything is possible... and take your cue from Willa, Webster, and Sweet Pea that life is indeed grand.
