Popeye from the Archives - 1st Wheelchair

This wheelchair came with Popeye. It was made by a vet in Taiwan.  It was put together nicely but the design was flawed, especially for Popeye's hind legs, which were incapable of bending at the knees.  It was extremely difficult to put him in the cart and when he was in there, his hind paws would drag along the ground, which is why they're bandaged for protection here in this picture. You can also see that his spine is elevated in the back rather, which isn't ideal.  What a long way from his current Doggon' Wheels!

Thanks for posting these photos. It's hard to believe that Popeye was once so young.

It's nice to see Bandit again, too!
