Boy raises money for dog's wheelchair
An 8-year-old boy in Lexington raised money for his dog to get a wheel chair.
"He fell down the whole set of stairs and the next day his feet were sort of dragging and we realized [what] had happened to him."
Cacious the dog was diagnosed with degenerative mylopathy last Fall.
"We knew the next step was to get him some wheels."
It was Ryder, who considers the dog another brother, who decided to raise money to buy the several hundred dollar wheelchair needed by selling key chains and magnets.
Ryder raised $315 in a matter of days, more than enough to buy cash for the first set of wheels.
"You put his feet right here."
"Hopefully this will give him a lot more freedom and mobility and he'll be with us a lot longer."
Lyssa McConathy, Ryder's mom, said the dog isn't in any pain and is just as playful as ever.
"It's just (Ryder's) nature. He's always trying to think of ways to help."
