I love sharing stories about disabled animals who overcome the challenges they face. We even have a section at Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog dedicated to Amazing Pets. But after reading an email from pet parent Cindy McBryan, I realized the real heroes are the people who flip their lives upside down so they can take care of an animal who is sick or paralyzed.
Cindy’s adult son, Matthew, is doing this for the McBryan family dog, Nike. The 100 lb. Labrador retriever suddenly became paralyzed at the worst time possible while Cindy’s husband was in the hospital being treated for cancer. Now caring for their paralyzed Labrador is a family affair.
