CANINE ON WHEELS Taffy, a white cocker owned by Mr. end Mrs. Ray Lee, who Jive
on the Curry road, was paralyzed lest summer when a speeding car struck him as he played
long the Garden Vf'ley road. Neighbors advised the Lees to "put Taffy out of his misery."
Instead they devised a set of wheels for his hind legs. They also gave him exercises, so now
he can wriggle his paws. These pictures show how Taffy greets canine friends, how he walks
and lies down for a rest.
