    Default Anyone else heard about this? Paralyzed dog can walk again.

    I heard this story on the radio, about how researchers injected olfactory cells into the damaged spinal cords of dogs: http://www.theworld.org/2012/11/jasp...-cell-therapy/. Pretty amazing results for some of the dogs, and inspires hope for dogs and humans suffering from spinal cord damage.

    It's way cool. I have been rehabbing my dachshund for 2 1/2 years and he can walk almost as good as the dog on the video. Been lots of tears and hard work. These dogs have more spunk and spirit than any person or animal I have ever encountered. My little guy has been amazing. When I've been ready to give up, he would always do something to keep me going. When he was first paralyzed I read this somewhere on a rehab site " When you are ready to give up, give them 6 more months!"
