If you're planning on participating in the Burien Wiener Dog Races in Burien, Washington, this Saturday, keep an eye out for this 8-year-old guy: Waldo! According to the B-Town Blog, he's got an unfair advantage - he's got wheels for cryin' out loud! His human, Dr. Yael Kantor of Seahurst Chiropractic and Wellness Center, gives some history on Waldo:
He came to me as a patient in 2003. He was just a couple months old. The vet brought him in – he had been injured either by being dropped or stood on. The result was a spinal cord injury. He was paralyzed from the mid-back down and could not go to the bathroom by himself so he was probably on his way to being euthanized.
Well, we fell in love with him. I adjusted him and got some sensation back in his tail which he ended up chewing and the vet had to dock.it. But after a slew of adjustments, acupuncture, hydrotherapy we did not get the movement back in his legs but we did get him a little wheelchair.
