Paralyzed Dog Scales Mount Washington in Wheelchair (VIDEO)

Paralyzed Dog Scales Mount Washington in Wheelchair (VIDEO)

Lucy is a dog who was rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico after being paralyzed in a car accident. She received a Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair and has learned to get around very well.

Her new owners decided to test out her determination and endurance by attempting a walk up New Hampshire’s Mount Washington — the tallest peak in the northeastern United States. 

In the video, you’ll see scenes from the walk made by Lucy and her canine and human friends.

Lucy is very lucky to have the owners that she has. She looks like a very happy little dog. You could tell that they really love her when they would have occassional rest stops. Very nice story.. God Bless Lucy and her owners .

I wondered if the breaks were sufficient for Lucy. But I'm sure her human guardian knows best. A beautiful dog she is.

I am inspired by Lucy's story, and by the commitment of her human family to provide such excellent quality of life for her. And I am confused by the people leaving comments questioning things that are VERY clear IF they watch the video. Yes, Lucy had breaks along the way....several of them where she was removed from her wheelchair and held and cuddled. She was given water breaks and even stopped to nibble on grass along the way. And at the video, you can hear one of the girls talking to Lucy about how all the "training" paid off. Obviously, this was NOT a spur of the moment decision....but a well-planned event. It is evident to me that Lucy is very loved by her family.
