    He is an incredibly photogenic dog.....He reward for after the trip was a bath as he managed to pick up a few fleas :) He was none too happy with that!

    He is absolutely photogenic!
    Love his coloring... he looks like a mahogany! Is he? His face and expression melts my heart!

    ive always assumed so, very heavily shaded. his mom was a tri, daddy a sable. he definitely has that melting look, doesn't he? and he is as sweet as can be.

    I couldn't attach them directly here..said file too big. One is him in his wheelchair this afternoon and the other is a few months old (of his limp, that is as good as it gets and it gets worse with activity). It is his left rear leg that has problems

    OMG Cindy, what a great job he is doing walking in that wheelchair! I just want to drop to the ground to hug and kiss him for being a good boy!

    You could post the larger video to YouTube and embed the link.

    Keep up the great work Gavin! You are a trooper!
    Stay strong! Mom knows best!!!

    Gavin is a very good boy :) We will slowly start increasing his walks with the wheelchair. He is a lot wider now, and doesn't understand that his wheel get caught up on things. Peeing is easy with it on, but I am not sure he will poop with it on.

    I was considering a wheelchair for Mr. Chance and wondered the same thing. Since Gavin is still mobile albeit limited, maybe he will understand he can poop when not in his he chair? My boys are very regular and go first thing in the morning and about 15 minutes after their lunch and dinner. Let us know how it goes!

    wow- he looks very comfortable with the wheelchair.
    I do have to say that his coloring and markings really remind of Callie-she's my avatar pic
