One other thing that Special Needs Dobermans does- aside from raising tax deductible donations- is special auctions on Ebay to raise funds for individual dogs.  I got some good news that Kane’s first auction is up.  Swing by and check it out and see what you think.  Our family really has been blessed to come into contact with S.N.D. (Special Needs Dobermans).

Auction for Kane

Kane showing off his shiny new harness. It is worth its weight in gold since I don't have to hunch over and cradle his back legs in my arms anymore.

Ignore for a second that this is possibly the second worst photo ever taken of me.  Trust me, you don’t want to see the worst.  Regardless, this photo depicts my new workout.  Just what is my new workout?  It is quite simple.  Attach a harness to the rear end of a 90lb dog, grab the handles, lift and carry for about 10-20 minutes 4 to 5 times a day.

Now unlike most workouts, hopefully the weight will decrease as he gets back some use of his legs.  For now though it me holding 100% of the weight of his back half 99% of the time. (more…)
