He developed crippling spinal myelopathy and arthritis, and slowly became depressed as the disease progressed. It prevented the use of his hind legs and seriously hindered his mobility and comfort. His owner resolved to find a way to walk his best friend and enhance his quality of life. Inspired by harnesses worn by rock climbers. INSTRUCTIONS: 1.
