Dog Is Her Co-Pilot…and Engine
Drivers and pedestrians can be forgiven for rubbernecking in San Diego, when long-time BARk reader Tamandra Michaels speeds by with a wide grin in a wheelchair pulled by an equally ecstatic-looking German Shepherd. Last week, the local CBS news profiled Michaels, a painter, who relies on a wheelchair due to paralysis caused by a birth defect, and her speed-loving assistance dog Borias. His full name is Borias von Herzensfreude, which roughly translates as "heart’s joy"--an emotion that's all too apparent as he sprints along pulling Michaels' chair—up to 20 miles per hour!
