A Tribute to "Can Do"

Can Do in his first cart.jpg
First day in his new foster home with Roo                                                His first cart (of 3 as he grew)  

"Can Do" pup was named for his can-do attitude.  Although he started out life in a rough situation, and although his life was short, it was a well-lived life full of true joy.  Can Do served as a great inspiration for The Puppy School.  Every pup and every adult dog has infinite potential.  Hats off to Can Do and that spirit that will never die.  You were well and truly loved.

Can Do was paralyzed in his back legs from birth.  As a result, he was also incontinent (that is why he wore a diaper when inside).  Despite these challenges, Can Do was one of the happiest puppies who ever lived!  He lived to be almost two years old and grew out of three different donated carts which helped him to get around and visit many parks and hiking trails all over Colorado and Arizona.  He had wonderful dog and cat friends and people family members who loved him more than words can tell.
