Zip Line to the Park...

AP here:
With all the medical posts I have done I thought I would take a detour to non medical (ish) post.

As Tonka can no longer hold a stand it is difficult for me to get him out of the truck now. In the past
I could go in the side door stand him then hurry to the back to catch him underneath and lead him down the ramp.

I needed to come up with something to get him up and hold him up so I could get to the back and lead him forward - unhook- and take him down the ramp - so I made a zip line type deal that would use the back portion of his help em up harness.



This morning we tested it out....

Leaving the House
In the truck








We drove to the park to meet Aunt Carol and Nala and the zip line did not work out too badly for a first run. I made a little movie about it...

Once out of the truck he got to wheel around with Nala

Crossing the Field

Checking out the Park with Nala

All in all he had a good morning!

Alice - your love for Tonka is deep and rare. God knew exactly who would be the best mama in the world for him. You continually amaze me. GREAT job on the pulley device for the car. Love, Lor

I'm in awe of your ingenuity, AP! I'm glad you and Tonka are still having good days, too.

Liam sends his love.
