Here is a little project my DH posted on LJ. It is based on a design for a chicken tractor but it helps our little old garden gnome get around a little better, keeps her safe and still allows her enjoy time in the garden with us.

A leash does not work well for a blind dog as she would end up getting tangled so the tractor was our solution.

I still haven’t had a chance to upload the pics of the work we have been doing in the garden but I will soon.

Fufer has had an exciting life. We lost her several years ago for 1 week near our home. An Animal Communicator from the UK helped us find her. It was one heck of a week. Here is her story.

Animals become such a part of your family; and there is just nothing you wouldn’t do for them. Fufer is truly a very special and much loved animal!!

Not a bad idea for a toddler, either!

Flyscreen and canvas would perhaps work for a kiddie tractor LOL….I would think chicken wire coul;d do some harm to tiny hands. Thanks all for the comments.
