When I first saw Chris P. Bacon, the wheelchair bound piglet, I thought to myself, "What a chariot!" How beautiful are 18th century chariots? Chris deserves a compliment. The little guy is up for a huge battle. Thanks to society being very wheel chair aware, and savvy, we gave Chris the opportunity to show his heart. His owner built him a wheelchair, but it was the wheelchair community supporters who gave him his own customized wheel chair, a first of its kind, created by handicappedpets.com.
Most animals faced with deficiencies that deal with growth don’t turn out so well. In time, just as we all gain a few pounds, Chris’s weight gain could interfere with his ability to lift his behind off of the ground while balancing his forelimbs. You know how it gets harder to walk long distances when we’ve hung out with friends all day eating and drinking! Chris’s pot belly will call for a shift in the center of his balance to the back end of his body. But I imagine that he isn’t worried about that. What other innovations will they customize to support Chris? Wheelchairs can be modified in so many ways, as we have seen tailored wheelchairs specific for the Olympic wheelchair sports. Look out for what’s to come. The world on wheels is full of surprises. Make sure you keep up with what's going on in Chris's life on his accounts Facebook , Twitter
