Guido's Page

October 4, 2008

A collection of links to Guido's pictures, videos and additional resources.

Since I point people to various bits of information, photos and other resources all scattered about related to Guido and his DM, I thought I'd collect them here together in a single place.


Guido in his stroller

Our Trip to Pacific Beach - This has some photos and videos of Guido in and out of his cart. This is the trip that I call the turning point, as it was here that he really started to use the cart for the first time.

Guido and the Hose - If you have any doubt about whether a Corgi can be happy/comfortable in a cart, you need to see this video. I often call it his "inspirational" video, because you can see he has a great time ... the fact that he's in a cart is totally irrelevant to him.

Guido's Cart - This model of cart is no longer available, but these are photos of the cart with and without Guido so you can see how it works, and how he looks.

Guido's Cart Demo - along those same lines we were asked at one point how easy it was, or was not, to put Guido in and take Guido out of his cart. Hence, a video. (Hint: it's really very simple.)

Guido can also be found here, on Brookehaven Corgis "Memory Lane".


We've come across some great resources along the way. Here are pointers to many of them.

  • Aging Gracefully: Caring For Dogs With Degenerative Myelopathy and Other Mobility Impairments - this is an article we wrote discussing some of the things to consider when dealing with a mobility impared dog.

  • La Paw Spa - Canine Hydrotherapy. We're convinced that Guido's life would be significantly shorter were it not for Cindy and La Paw Spa.

  • Wheeled Corgis - a Yahoo group with a number of members who've also dealt or are dealing with Corgis with assorted mobility problems. A great resource, particularly if you're new to the problem.

  • K9 Carts West - this is where Guido's cart came from. It was great, as were the people at K9 Carts.

  • Belly Bands for Boys from Peke A Tzu Rescue. We tried several different types of belly bands, and these were by far the best.

  • Corgi-L the largest, oldest and perhaps the friendliest email discussion list all about Corgis.
