Boots with wheels...Roller boots?

I saw this among the photos on the HandicappedPets Facebook page where you vote for the 2021 calendar contest. Look at the boots on his front paws. They have wheels!

I haven't found who sells them yet. Or they may have been some no-knuckle boots that were adapted by adding wheels, but if so, it looks professional like they were made that way.

Hmmm. So I guess that's supposed to make it so a human can push the pupper in the cart? If I were dealing with a quadriplegic I'd just find a way to sling the arms up like the legs. I think it'd be a lot easier. The tiny wheels on the boots wouldn't travel over anything bigger than, like, sand! An A grade for creativity, though.

Yeah, I can't quite figure it out either. The axels are so thin that it seems like they might bend easily, but it must be working and solving a problem. So interesting. I wish the family could be here to explain it, because this might be a solution to a problem some people encounter, and it might be brilliant.
