It was a big week for Chance. Not only did he get his new wheelchair, but he had his first visit to the Modern Dog office and dropped by S.A.I.N.T.S. for a visit during their open house. It was also a bit of a stressful week in our house—at least for me it was. Cash and Chance seemed to be taking a step backwards in their progress towards becoming friends, and the smell of urine has engulfed my house and all things in it.
