Pictures -Nicky in Harness-
Thanks for courtesy of Mr. Iwai.
Pictures on this page are all by courtesy of Takeshi Iwai, professional
I just trimmed pictures(cut off myself!) and enlighted,
and still Takeshi Iwai has copyrights.
Mr. Iwai finally took pictures of Nicky!
Takeshi Iwai is a photographer and also my friend, whose dog Gina is Nicky's aunt.
I often asked him "Please take Nicky's pics some day" and the day comes!
After Nicky would become 10, I have to be careful to watch Nicky's health
and change some of his tasks.
Pulling my wheelchair is one of those tasks, even he likes it most, he
would not do it often as before.
I asked Mr. Iwai, to take picture of Nicky's wheelchair pulling before
he would be so old.
December 10, 2005,
Nicky was in his red harness which had been used for years to pull my wheelchair.
9 years and 11 months old Nicky, was in good health, pulled my wheelchair
so well, and jumped up Mr. Iwai's big van.
Nicky was so happy and proud to help me, on the straight and confortable
There were also many persons and bicycles on that road.
"Nicky, forward (go straight in harness to take me forward)!"
Handler always be responsible to dog's safe and health.
When we start, I first push wheels then hold Nicky's harness, to prevent
damage to his joints and muscles.
Pic on left is starting, and pic on right is proceeding.
The dog pulling wheelchair must not lean to ground, and see Nicky is not
Many pictures show me that.
It's useful for me, and it's fun for Nicky!
We both enjoy walking together, sometime helping each other.
For years Nicky helped me in many ways, include pulling me in wheelchair.
I really appreciate you, Nicky.
It makes me happier, and it makes my life different.
You brought me what I had been dreaming, and more!
And Nicky, you have so many tasks that you can continue even after you
would get older.
Nicky enjoyed showing off his service dog tasks to take pictures,
you see, he looks so happy!
So nice pictures showing Nicky's good job.
I appreciate Mr. Iwai, for these great pictures.
Also I appreciate Nicky,
For being the best co-worker of me.
