Where there is a will, there is a way.  At least for LoLo — a 13-year old pug who has lost the use of her back legs.

In a testament to how pets have become children, LoLo now gets around through assistance from a two-wheel attachment that moves her hind quarters forward when she walks.  The apparatus is custom-made by a small company in Massachusetts and seems to work beautifully.  Apparently it took some getting used to, but you’d never know it now.

What is an impediment you face — physical, mental, cultural — and how can you custom-fit a solution that will work for you?  It may be hard to imagine what solution will overcome your challenges, but I’ll bet it is out there.  

Think of LoLo and her new-found mobility.  Surely you can devise something that will solve your problem too.
