This little pup was born with no front legs, so it’s a good thing David Turnbill thought to fit the girl with a prosthetic that uses model airplaine wheels and makeshift shoulder joints so she can get around! (Thanks, Brandon!)

  1. As a once total technophile, I think I like the somewhat-creepy alternative better. Just shows what can be accomplished with a little willpower. I guess it’s love either way, but, as I’m learning, technology isn’t always the best solution, just the oft-easiest, logical, and least-overlooked.

    That said, this design is sweet with the springs and stuff. Wonder how it’ll work on gravel. ;)
