Meet handsome wirehair 'Bart,' who hailed from Mifflinburg, Pennsylavania. Bart lived to the ripe old age of 16, and spent the last 1.5 years of his life on wheels. His humans talk open and candidly about taking care of a disabled dachshund: “We were able to do it because we work from home, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who has a full-time job,” his mom admitted. “It could be miserable, hard work.” That hard work included having to physically express Bart’s bladder, change diapers and wash his “clothes” several times each day. He had to be carried up and down the steps and the house was rearranged to make room for his cart.
Still, his humans don’t regret the past year and a half. “The good months were really good,” said his mom.
