Mr. Cool is swaggerific

Mr. Cool as a young'n
Mr. Cool's back legs are getting so strong, he's been ditching his wheels sometimes.

He can scratch behind his ear with his back leg and walk down his ramp without wheels--if he takes it slowly.

He is getting overconfident, though.

I found him almost to the top of the stairs yesterday, tired. We have baby gates to prevent him from heading up, but we hadn't latched them. It took some coaxing to get him to go down the stairs instead of finishing his trip upward. My husband finally picked him up so he didn't have to go down the last few steps. Mr. Cool was very exhausted after such an adventure.

Lesson learned...latch the baby gates! 

He swaggers like a cowboy but gets around on his own. He can even run, though after a bit his back legs start to do kangaroo hops. 

We try to discourage too much activity. I'm afraid he will hurt himself again. At least when he goes outside, I make sure to hook him up to his cart. Inside the house, he's wheel-free most of the time.

It's obvious that in Mr. Cool's mind, he's a puppy once again.


  1. Yay for Mr Cool!! So happy you're getting around so well, but don't over do it buddy :)

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

    1. Thanks Snoopy. Hope you and your "Bette Davis" fluff ball are getting along!
