9/3/2004: Two-legged dog walks upright



Well here we have Faith, a dog born without front legs, who has taught herself to walk upright. I believe this is one of the signs of the apocalypse.

full story

The video of the dog walking is truly disturbing, the way it moves, but still, recommended.

I have such amazingly mixed reactions to this. My first thought was that this is one of the most inspiring, dear things I have ever seen. The adaptability of this creature must give tremendous hope to people who are disabled. It is almost enough to make you cry.

The second thing I thought was, "You know, this kinda reminds me of Scooby Doo..."

I've been watching the SCTV DVDs, and while listening to that local news guy introduce the video, I kept expecting to hear the jingle "Gerry Todd!"

We used to have a cat that had three legs. In the litterbox, it would swing its stump in the air like it was actually burying its mess, every time.

I know I'm going straight to hell, I've come to grips with the fact. That being said, that is the strangest, funniest thing I have seen in a long, long time.

Throw a tie and jacket on her and maybe the DNC could run her as a yellow dog democrat.

walks just like george carlin

There was a three-legged dog checked in at a kennel I used to work at. It had adapted very well; I didn't notice the missing limb until its cage card told me about it.

walks just like george carlin

Actually, I was thinking it walked just like my stepson did when he was a little younger. He did that exact same half-skipping thing instead of walking with an even gait.

I was disappointed they didnít show the dog getting up from a prone to walking position. I have a hunch those back legs wonít last too many years, as they werenít designed for that kind of strain. Whatís really cool is the people saying sheís just a regular dog thatís compensating for a physical handicap, but not altering her natural doggie behavior. I think most people with that handicap would alter their activities and attitude as well



jane_says  Saturday Sep 4 10:57 PM

Wow. That's freakin' amazing. And it was slightly disturbing, for some reason. But shes otherwise a very cute dog, and seemed very lovable.



Leah  Sunday Sep 5 06:05 PM

I hope they have made her a little buggy device with wheels, so they can place it under the front of her body (legs) and then she can push herself around. Gives those hard working back legs a rest.
I also am in two minds, I feel so very sorry for her but on the otherhand, at least she had a chance at life and not just destroyed at birth.

Dogs are amazing about stuff like this - they are very adaptable and they don't spend much, if any, time feeling sorry for themselves.

When one of our greyhounds was diagnosed with bone cancer, the alternatives were to amputate the leg it showed up in or just let the disease run its course until the pain was too great. We decided to do the amputation and JC did marvelously well. He didn't spend a minute mourning the loss and was able to do everything he did before. People would watch him run and not even realize he was a tripod until we said something about it. We had him for three years after that and I think he was very happy.

Our dog had a genetic disorder where her hip joints were wearing down the bone and the legs were popping in and out of joint. Both her rear hips had to be sawed off in three places and replaced with metal pins (called a TPO), then the place where the muscle from the hips joined the leg bone was sawed off and replaced a half-inch lower to act like a rubber band and pull the leg bone in tighter.

She was up and walking on all her legs not 6 hours after coming out from the anesthesia. Amazing, I would be in bed for months! We lived on the 4th floor, so we bought a little red wagon at Toys R Us and loaded it with pillows to cart her out to pee. All the neighbors knew us as the loons with the dog in a wagon.

Don't have that to deal with, but I do undestand about altering activities and attitude...

I kinda feel sorry for the poor pup anyway.

My Jack Russell sits up like this to "beg". How do you know if this dog needs something? If it was my dog (Frank) he'd be big as a barrel. Amazing how creatures adapt to disabilities/deformaties. Treats Galore!!!!!!! Then there's my cousin Amos.....................
