My wonderful Cleo will be 13 in December and has just started having back problems. Her whole life we have taken long walks (approximately 2 miles) at least 5 nights a week. Now 1/4 to 1/2 mile is all that is good for her. She wants to go more, but I cannot let her. I also have a greyhound, and the 3 of us LOVE to take long walks. I need to have something I can push to put Cleo in when she has walked far enough. (I don't want to leave her home.) We live in Florida, and the weather is just now getting to where we can take our long walks again. The problem is that the roads we have to walk on are very rough. I need some kind of "carriage" I can put Cleo in so she can see everything, that I can fold up and easily put in the trunk of the car, and one in which she will be comfortable and not shaken to bits as we go over the rough roads. I am looking for whatever specific advice on carriages anyone has. I physically cannot use a carrier that I would need to wear (quite aside from the question of heat). Please help us to we can get out walking as a family again!! Thank you!http://www.dogster.com/forums/post.php#

you are an inspiration cleo! i hope i am walking those distances at your age!
that is so cute your brudder is a greyhound.
they make some pretty cool dog strollers these days..have you tried a google search?
i know there are alot of little dogsters who have strollers; you might have better luck posting this in a main forum rather than breed specific.
rock on little doxie! hail

I just thought that other doxies might know of really neat ones that would help me enjoy my walks with mom and Carrie better. I have found some things called strollers and may just show mom the one I think would be best. Wanted advice for my sibling brainiacs first however, so thanks!!!!
