    i wonder if he went through that stage of trying to shake them off, like those videos of dogs wearing booties try to.

    Wow! He does look happy. That`s really all that matters -- the slight awkwardness will get better with time, I`m sure.

    Lorah - his owners abandoned him in Nebraska when his family decided to flee their foreclosed home. The dogs mother (I believe) died, and he (Naki`o) and his siblings barely survived. He stepped in an icy puddle in the basement, and his paws got stuck in said icy water. When found, they were taken to an animal rescue centre, where Naki`o`s paws healed to rounded stumps. As walking on stumps would be painful, he crawled about on his belly, and the centre organised a fundraiser to get his back legs fitted with prosthetics. He took to them so enthusiastically that the people who fitted them gave the full set for free.

    nettech98 - Considering the fact that they are built to minic the muscle,and bone, I guess it has to be somewhat bionic, I dont know of any materials that can do so very accuratly without computer help.

    He moves kind of clunkily, but he`s walking.

    And Justin and piper, Gerry got a two week ban, but that`s well over. Last time I saw him post was when that guy got a knife in his eye. And I believe he mentioned that he wouldn`t be posting as much due to the hypocrisy of IAB.

    The person who did that for this dog deserves a Nobel Peace prize.

    :( Why did he get frostbite? Stray or owner neglect?
    Either way, he definitely deserves it.
