Paralyzed Dachshund And Pet Parent’s Evening Routine of Bonding
Meet Pandora and her mom Marissa. Pandora is an adorable dachshund affected by intervertebral disc disease (IVDD). She is paralyzed, and her pet parent is in recovery from several health issues. They both needed each other and being together has made both their paths to recovery a whole lot better.
Pandora and Marissa eat dinner together every night, a routine that has been going on for two years now, and has been a huge part of both of their recovery. While it may not seem like a big event for some pet parents, for these two, it’s become a way to bond with each other.
Marissa suffered from Alcohol and Drug addictions, but with the love of her Doxie, she was able to overcome these issues. Today, these two have an unbreakable bond and want to show the world that there is life after paralysis.
While Pandora is restricted in certain activities, sharing moments with Marissa such as eating together, and cuddling makes up for all the limitations. Do you have a Dachshund with IVDD or who had IVDD? Share your stories in the comments!
