Geography is no limit to dog-friendly travel: race a husky across Alaska; hang out with the pampered canines of the fancy shows in Europe; run an obstacle course together in a small-town meet; or sit back and watch costumed dogs on parade at Halloween in New York City.
And while some events focus a specific breed, any dog that understands a Frisbee can show up at a local Skyhoundz meet.
Chris has no feeling from the chest down, complete use of his arms and limited use of his hands (he can write, type, push his manual chair and even drive so he does very well for himself). Before his accident he was an athletic person, he ran every day, a semi-pro cyclist, he loved to hike and camp.
Chris has been in the police force for 10 years now and before he started his career in law enforcement he was an Army Ranger. He is in very good spirits and doesn’t see himself as disabled.

I constantly have to clean up after him on top of everything else and he doesn’t care.
I don’t see him as disabled, I see him not the chair. He just expects me to do everything and I never get the respect or appreciation that I think I deserve.
I want to go back to school, but he says that I don’t need to because I get paid a very decent amount of money as his primary caregiver.I have explained my feelings and thoughts to him as we are very open with each other. The last time I mentioned it, he said “Is it really that hard for you to do it a couple of nights?We have never had a problem expressing our feelings. ” It is, because we don’t have simple quiet weekends at home, we are always on the go, by the time we get home I am worn out from the traveling, transfers, and putting the wheelchair in and out of the car. I hope that you can help me and give me some insight. Sure, dogs slobber, dig holes, shed, and like to roll in things that smell bad.But they are also the purest expression of joy on the planet.
