Neighbor Helps Dog Roll Through Her Anxiety
--by SissyLee, posted May 21, 2021
My neighbor's friend had a brand new dog stroller, but her dog was too big for it. They wondered if my dog, Hazel, would feel safe in stroller. Then we could all go for real walks, and she could leave the stroller if she liked.
I found the stroller on my porch yesterday. I took Hazel outside and sure enough, she didn't want to walk because a truck went by and made too much noise. So I got the stroller and plopped her in it. She looked at me and gave me the goofiest little grin.
I took her over to my neighbor, and we cooed over her. I was able to push her on a very happy walk. She was relaxed in her protected space on wheels and she watched the world go by like a dog in a little car. What a great and kind gift for all of us.
