It takes a special person to take care of a dog with special needs. April was more than willing to help Clyde with his problems with walking.
This beautiful husky would wobble when he walks. When April found Clyde, he could barely stand up. He would often fall, especially when he tried to walk.
Clyde has cerebellum hypoplasia. This condition means that his cerebellum is underdeveloped. The cerebellum is responsible for an individual’s motor skills and balance. The condition makes it difficult for Clyde to walk normally.
April wanted Clyde to get better, so she often brings Clyde to the park. April would then encourage Clyde to stand up on his own. She would always cheer him on when he walks to give him confidence.
When Clyde first started walking in the park, he could barely stand. The more he kept trying, the better he got. Now he can stand on his own and walk for a good twenty to thirty minutes.
Clyde even got confident enough to start running with other dogs. It was such a beautiful moment for April. Clyde is making a lot of progress, but there are still a lot of challenges.
April needs to make sure that Clyde is kept safe at all times. When Clyde eats or drinks, he still needs assistance just in case he falls. April or another family member would be by his side as Clyde eats and drinks.
April also made sure that their floor is covered with carpets. April has designed their house in a way that keeps Clyde from hurting himself when he falls.
Clyde is very fortunate to have a mother like April, who has his best interests in mind. April is doing it out of love. She doesn’t consider it an obligation. Clyde makes April happy, and there’s nothing she won’t do for him.
