    Is there any rational explanation to this phenomenon? (Witnessed in Scarborough this last weekend).

    perhaps they weren't very mobile? our pets are also our kids and will do anything for them for a happier life

    Unless Scarborough has a disproportionate number of immobile dogs that seems an unlikely explanation to me. But respect to all concerned if that is the case.

    There's a lady lives near me who's dog is barely able to walk. She takes it out in a buggy for the same walk they always used to do and gently helps it onto a patch of grass for it to do its business before putting it back in the buggy to complete the walk. It's heartwarming.

    Our Finch (border collie) who is as fit and strong as can be, has his little sister from the same litter, Rosie, in the next village, and she has had severe heart problems from birth. Tetrology of the Fallot I think it's called. Her heart valves are all to ****.
    She was not expected to live.
    She, and Finch, will be seven in May.
    She has to be taken everywhere in a doggy pram because any strain on her heart could be fatal but she can get in and out of the pram by herself and around her house if careful. She loves meeting people but very quickly gets out of breath and her tongue turns blue due to oxygen shortage.
    Her life is as good as it can be due to the pram, together with lots of love and care. A living miracle.
    Apparently she was featured in the Daily Mirror recently, photographed in her pram with her favourite toy.

    I follow Rosie's story on FBook, and her owner Sue. She's a gorgeous dog, and as you say, a miracle she's lasted so long after the vets gave her a very short life expectancy. She sadly lost both her parents in recent times too, both from illness. The story in the press was a rare bit of happiness for them all, and Rosie became a national treasure for a short while.

    Strangest thing I've ever seen in a pushchair.
    I was walking down Skeggy high st wondering what was catching everyones attention as the the lady walked by.
    Stood up in the pushchair, collar round its neck with a lead to stop it running off. A bloomin Chicken. Apparantly a regular sight for the locals.

    Towards the end of his life our dog had difficulty in walking, but we carried him whenever he needed it, if he was a slightly bigger dog we wouldn't have hesitated in buying a dog pram.

    There's an old persons home near me where a guy in an electronic wheelchair takes his cocker spaniel for a 'walk' with the Cocker on his lap.
    The dog loves it, and soon as the wheelchair starts to move it yaps constantly and so the bloke where's industrial ear muffs.
    It's quite a sight, the dog barking away, and the old bloke wearing industrial ear-defenders while smiling and waving at amused passers by.

    I am absolutely delighted that you are following Rosie's story !!!!!!
    We are always in touch with Sue and Rosie as they only live a couple of miles away.
    Yes we were all devastated when Lottie and Alphie died recently, so close together, and they both had cancer type growths. One day they had three dogs, all happy and as jolly as could possibly be, not long after only Rosie, the one they expected to lose first.
    So our Finch lost his parents but he still has his little sister Rosie.
    Thank you for following Rosie's page.

    I remember a story a few years ago about a guy from Eyri who regularly used to walk his dog up Snowdon and other surrounding peaks... until his dog was no longer able and he used to take her up in a wheelbarrow. The bit I saw was her last trip when her quality of life was too poor to continue :(
