National Walk ‘N Roll Dog Day, founded by yours truly will celebrate it’s first year this Saturday, September 22! I created this day to continue to bring a positive face to all dogs in wheelchairs and to help educate others that they can live long, quality lives with their wheels. I also want to continue to help educate others that Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)- like Frankie had- is not a death sentence. Frankie zoomed around in her wheels for six years, never really realizing her back end was wheels- she just knew that she could be a dog again and that was all that mattered.
I’d love for you to join in the celebration! Have a dog? Got a camera? Well, great then all you have to do is print out one of the signs below and have your dog pose with it. If you have a dog in a wheelchair than print out the first one. If you and your dog support all the furry wheelie dogs out there, then print out the second sign (save the image to your computer by right clicking and save image as- then find image on your computer and print out as 8.5 x 11). Check out all the dogs who have already entered the contest on our Facebook page. I’ll bet you’ll saw awwwww at least once!! If you don’t have a dog, we’d love your support by simply stopping by the Facebook page and “liking” it. To see the prizes we are giving away visit the photo contest detail page on our website.
