Oudezijds Achterburgwal, Amsterdam, Het Kolkje.
George Hendrik Breitner Rotterdam, 12 September 1857 - Amsterdam, 5 June 1923.
This morning Spike’s little wheelchair arrived just as the company Hondenrolstoel.nl had promised yesterday.
Took Richie quite awhile to put it together before he could put Spike in the harness, at first Spike refused to walk just sat and looked cross.
Just looked like he seemed to think we were torturing him and he wanted nothing to do with the wheelchair.
Apparently he would not walk to the dog toilet, when he got there he was very difficult would not do anything.
He wanted help but also not, the stroppy little devil, on the way back he seemed to notice that he could get about better to sniff all the other dogs scent.
Then he tried to refuse to walk home and wanted Richie to carry him home but eventually he walked home.
Then he and Marleen had a good play together which has not happened for a long time now, it was lovely to see.
They went to the park and have just got back now, Richie says Spike had a great time in the park.
He had a very good time according to Richie and was running around exploring all the bushes and having a brilliant time.
Looks like the wheelchair is a big hit with Spike, here is hoping for plenty of good times for the plucky little dog..
