My Trip to Eddie's Wheels For Pets

Happy Monday everybody!!!
Sorry that I didn't post anything yesterday, but I was too tired and sore from my trip to Eddie's Wheels to order my cart.  I was so excited about being there that I wore myself out and yesterday I just slept the day away. Of course I sleep most days aways anyways, but yesterday I was also sore.  I better today.
I had a really nice visit to Eddie's Wheels For Pets on Saturday.  It was a long ride, but I slept most of the way.   They even had snow there which was nice to see.  I even got to meet a border collie and a great big collie that were getting their wheels.  I got to watch them getting used to their new carts.  I was so excited and couldn't wait until it was my turn.  Leslie the owner was really nice to me and my mom and Chris.  I stood really still while she took measurements of me.  That made my mom really happy.  Chris took some pictures. Unfortunately, she didn't have a cart for me in stock, so I have to wait 2 weeks to have my very one made.  I wanted it motorized, but my mom said no.  HEHE  I tried.

Here are some pictures of me getting measured for my cart.

That is my mom on the right holding my head while they took my measurements.  I had to be really still so they could make my cart.

Sorry for the skin shot, but that is where I was shaved to have my surgery.  I guess it takes a while for the fur to grow back.  Mom is gonna get me a doggie coat for when we go for walks outside, and boots.

After I got measured, my mom talk to Leslie for a bit about the disc disease I got and how the cart will even help with trying to walk again.  She had a doxie named Daisy that was paralyzed also from the disc disease, and the cart helped her out a lot. She also recommended a supplement for all us doxies to take and to also try acupuncture.  So, we ordered the cart and we have to come back in 2 weeks to get it.  Whoo Hoo, I can't wait!!!!  Just in case you want to visit their website, here it is:

Here are some other pictures from Eddie's Wheels.  I am sure we will have more when we go get my cart.  Maybe even a video!!!!

 This is the big room where they make the carts.


So many carts and none that fit me..  Oh well, I get mine custom made just for me.     By the way on top  of the cart in front is a pair of skiis for a cart to use in the snow.  Mom said no to that also, besides the cart being motorized.  :-)

                               I tired, let's go home. Where's my crate, I need a nap.

Well, my friends that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed my story of my trip to get me a cart on wheels.  I also want to thank you for joining my blog and also for all the nice comments you sent me.   They meant a lot to me.  With all your support I know I will get better! 

Have a great week everybody!!!!

Welcome to Blu's New Blog

Hi, My name is Blu and I thought I would try doing some blogging while healing from a back injury.  I am new at this so I hope I do it right.  I am a 6 year old dachshund and I live with 3 other doxie's and 2 cats and of course my human Mom and Dad and their son Chris.  I like to eat and sleep, and until I got hurt chase the cats.  But, a couple of weeks ago I hurt my back, and had to have surgery.  For now, I can't walk but someday I hope to.  I have to take it easy for a while and my mom says she is going to get me a cart with wheels to help me walk and get around the house and also go outside again.  I can chase the cats again also.  HEHE.. Just kidding. That is why I am calling my blog "Blu on Wheels" .

In time, with physical therapy I hope to run again.  But, while I am on this journey to walking and running on my own I hope to post my progress and have pictures also.  Please join me on my journey to walking again.

Here is a couple pictures of me and my family.


This picture was taken when I was a puppy.  I am on the far right.  My brother and sisters are from the left Freckles, Midget and Dipstick.

These are pictures of our cats Tux and Blackie.

This is me laying on top of the couch.  One of my favorite place to look outside.

                                                    Mom and me.

Well, that is it for today.  Time to go take a nap.
Happy Weekend Everyone.
