Emma Gets Her Walkin' Wheels and Earns Her Therapy Dog Vest

We love to receive updates from our customers at HandicappedPets.com telling us about all of the wonderful adventures that their dogs are having in their Walkin' Wheels.

Last week, we received a very special report from Linda McKeighen who resides in Florida with Emma - a 13-year old Boxer. Linda reports that Emma is using her Walkin' Wheels not only to help her walk but also to make a difference in the lives of others.

As the newest member of the therapy dog group Canines for Christ, Emma recently had her first visit with disabled children, and she is also planning to complete the application process to become an approved visitor at the local VA hospital.

Emma proved to be a very energetic and capable therapy dog.

"She was very gentle and everyone loved her...it was an amazing two hours that brought a lot of smiles and happiness," said Linda.

If you have a Walkin' Wheels adventure that you would like to share with us, please send your story and photo to lisa@handicappedpets.com We look forward to hearing from you.
