I had to send you a little clip of my HAPPY little boy!! This was taken
literally less than 60 seconds after we put him down in it!!! He
literally ZOOMED off (as you can see in the clip).
For the rest of the weekend he walked right along with his big brothers
and sisters when we took them out!!! We finally had to put a leash on
him because we couldn’t move fast
enough to catch up with him!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! I haven’t seen my little one this
happy since his accident!! He is free and moving on his own again!! We
couldn’t be any happier!!
Diablo is doing great! He loves his cart and we are very happy with it. He has not lost a bit of competitiveness with my parent’s dogs while playing ball. He also has started to work cattle with me again. He is much happier since we have gotten the cart.
Legolas was getting very mopey with his bad hips but now he’s back to being the active guy we all love. We have a farm and he is back to herding our goats, chickens, turkeys, and can even follow the horses allover the rocky AZ terrain. Again, thank you guys so much for making this chair for him. You’re amazing, and I cannot thank you enough!
A man and woman created a great family. They had a couple of great kids and a wonderful dog. The dog was very dedicated and provided years of companionship, fun and joy to the family.
Over the years the dog became ill. The parents learned from the vet that the dog was not going to get better. They were torn and did not know if they could introduce the burden of this into their kids lives.
As time passed the parents realized it was time. They decided that they would keep the burden off their kids and tell them after the fact.
While the kids were away, the parents had that wonderful dog put to sleep. Upon their return they gathered together and the parents broke the news. The parents said “our doggie was very sick and was suffering. So we had the dog put to sleep. Now it is with God in doggie heaven.”
The parents held their breath…..the parents were very afraid that the youngest kid would not take it well ……..after learning the news and with some time of contemplation the youngest said “well, ……………….I don’t know what God wants with all those dead dogs anyway! ……. Can we go out and play now?”
Well, we are so very sad to say that God received another great doggie Sunday night. After 12 years Louise couldn’t see herself clear of the weight of old age and all the burden it brought
She is in no pain, she is running free now and will stay forever young……
We love you all!
Gracie, Elizabeth, Amy & Jim
It is with heavy heart that we inform you of Louise’s passing on Sunday evening. She lived a wonderful long life (12 years) and there is no doubt that her sweet heart would have left this world many many months ago if it had not been for the mobility that Ruff Rollin provided her. She has not walked on her own in two years. For the first few months of her infirmary, we took her around the neighborhood in a wheelbarrow. It was something, but was not anything that would keep her healthy and alive. We were blessed to discover Ruff Rollin after much internet search and since February of 2011 with the help of her “bike”, she has been rollin around the neighborhood, taking road trips, swimming in lakes and enjoying life. She is now running free but she will always be thankful for the life that you afforded her.
With great appreciation

When asked “WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?” I say “I GET TO ADD THE SPARKLE BACK!” “If I could have taken a picture of the sparkle in my dog (GSDX) Mindy’s eyes when she realized that those wheels where giving her the freedom to move, run and play ball again, it would have said it all! She had become depressed because of her Degenerative Myelopathy and was not able to chase squirrels or play ball anymore and Ruff Rollin’ changed all that for her. She was sick for 1.5years with DM and she used her wheels [... more]
All of our Rear Support Wheelchairs are convertible into a Full Support Design. The typical case where this might happen is with a progressive disease such as degenerative myelopathy. Degenerative myelopathy of dogs is a slowly progressive, non-inflammatory, and painless, degeneration of the myelin sheath that surrounds the spinal cord. It is most commonly seen in German Shepherds and Welsh Corgis, although is occasionally recognized in other breeds such as Boxers The cause is unknown, although genetic factors are suspected. The early onset usually occurs later than age 5 and usually begins with a slight knuckling over of the rear feet. You [... more]
