Lucy, The Paralyzed Dog Who Climbed Mount Washington

Climbing a mountain is no small feat. Mount Washington is located in Mt. Conway, New Hampshire and is 6,288 feet high (1.92 km). This is especially the case when it comes to Lucy, a paralyzed dog that was hit by a car on the streets of Puerto Rico two years ago. She was adopted by Courtney Dunning of Nashua, New Hampshire and received her wheelchair from Handicapped Pets.

Lucy officially climbed Mount Washington on August 18, 2010. Seeing the video shows how challenging this climb was. It was videotaped and shared on You Tube. I first came across this article on and was totally inspired by the story. I found this especially remarkable and thought I would share the video here.

Needless to say, Lucy has built quite a following. You can catch up on the latest by visiting her Facebook Fan Page.

Let's Discuss!

What inspires you? What have you learned from your dog that has changed your perspective?
