Sausage Dog Snow Day: Dachshund Trades Usual Walking-Aid for Skis

Ten-year-old dachshund dog Molly had some snowy fun with pals Izzy and Luis at the University of Guelph Arboretum in Ontario.Molly has been paralyzed in her back legs since she suffered a spinal condition, IVDD, in 2015. Since then, Molly’s had to use a cart to support her back legs and to allow her to get around.Inventive owner Susan Freeman used children’s skis (previously attached to a scooter) to create a custom-made set of skis for Molly. The skis allow Molly to get around very easily in snowy conditions, as can be seen in this video. Freeman told Storyful, “Molly is so inspirational; she is always so enthusiastic and happy, and brings smiles to so many.” Credit: molly.sausageroll via Storyful
