Building carts for others?
I've been asked whether I would make doggy wheelchairs for others. I think it would be difficult and error prone to try to design and make a custom cart using only photos and measurements as a reference. However, I'd love to hear of anyone's efforts to make a cart!
The next step is to paint the frame. My wife suggested a bright snazzy yellow to match the wheels...
Also, I'm considering adding a 'stirrup' for Kayla's foot. There are times when I don't want her to use her back leg. Other carts on the market have slings that hold the leg or legs either suspended behind or in front. I'm thinking of using one of the little dog booties we have, attached to a cord or chain, to suspend her foot under her belly. I'll post photos if I do this.
Thanks for taking the time to read the story of Kayla's wheelchair.
