Dog Wheelchair Summits Mt. Washington

First ever paralyzed dog in a wheelchair reaches the summit of Mt. Washington. Lucy climbs the Mount Washington Auto Road in her Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets - the pet industry's first and only fully adjustable dog wheelchair that can accommodate different sizes and breeds of dogs.

Courtney Dunning and her dog Lucy are pictured at the summit of Mt. Washington on August 18, 2010. Lucy climbed the 7.6 mile Mount Washington Auto Road in 6 hours and 2 minutes. Lucy is a 4-year old mixed breed that was rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico. Lucy was paralyzed following a collision with a car.

At 11:30 a.m. on August 18, 2010, Lucy became the first ever dog in a wheelchair to summit the highest peak in the Northeast. Congratulations to Lucy and her Walkin' Wheels. Read more...
