Smile Help finding a wagon for my older dog

My senior dog is needing help getting around, especially when I go for walks. Does anyone have a good idea regarding wagons like Radio Flyer that would be easy to get a 90 lb dog in and out of and be easy to push when I go out for walks?

Thanks!!

p.s.
If any of you big strong handsome sexy guys can build me one....

Have you considered getting something made for dogs? Check out http://www.handicappedpets.com to see all of the things they have to help with mobility issues.

Also, look for an animal massage therapist. You would be amazed at the difference it can make.

do you have him on a senoir diet? I have found that it has really helped with my Greyhounds both are 11 and for the first time I don't have joint issues. I started them on it when they were 5.
You can also ask your vet they have Vet approved glucosamine that helps the joints.

Unhappy Darn MOD moved me to the Pet section!! How am I going to get a big strong sexy guy here?!

Thanks Evey! I have that website as a favorite and went to it last night before posting. I have a general idea of what I want, I just want to make certain that before I buy it, I research all the possibilities. I think some sort of Radio Flyer wagon is the best fit for what I need .

How much for you to fly to ID and do your massage magic though??? Possibily FREE if a hurricane is heading your way !?

My dear sweet adorable Karla A senior diet??? No, I'll have to look into that. My dog takes glucosamine and Rimadryl and has a bunch of good vitamins and glucosamine in her current food, but I will look into Sr dog food also.
