Devoted Dog Dad Invents Clever “Adventure Chariot” For Ailing Senior Pooch

 Age is simply variety and not a mirrored image of a dog’s spirit to measure happily and within the moment. That’s precisely the mantra Donny Marchuk and his 14-1/2-year-old dog, Sully, share. As Sully became a senior, the retriever was not ready to continue long walks together with his owner in Calgary, Canada. However, Donny decided that he would keep Sully’s spirits up and help him live his best life.

In addition to his arthritis and laryngeal paralysis, Donny still has the will to hold out together with his dad and be outdoors. Donny fashioned a child’s stroller into an “adventure chariot” and places Sully in it for outdoor adventures and fun.

“The chariot, I borrowed from a lover , and once during a while we borrow a ski attachment and that we go snowshoeing also . So walks and mountain adventures are on tap this winter thus far ,” the dog dad said.

Sometimes Donny and Sully choose short sprints round the neighborhood, but other times they are going out into nature for snowy walks together. The devoted dog dad sees the grins on the faces who walk or jog by as they glance at Donny so proud in his chariot. He says that the reaction from strangers has been the simplest a part of everything.

He promises to walk around outside with Sully until he's physically unable to try to to so any more . Until then, he gives Sully all the eye and love and makes sure he gives back for all the love Sully has given to him. Press play on the video below to enjoy this dynamic duo in action.
