What more can we say about Prada besides, “SHE’S AWESOME”?! Prada is an almost 16 year old Lhasa Apso mix, but you’d never guess her age by looking at her. She still rocks it in the underwater treadmill by going for 20 minutes at a speed between .5-.7 miles an hour! Prada has been a patient of IPC since the fall of 2009. Whether it was keeping her conditioned for competitions, rehabbing her knee surgery or helping her bounce back from an 11 day stay in the ER, we’ve been cheering Prada on every step of the way!
Since the age of 2, Prada has been a therapy dog with Canine Therapy Corp and is currently the oldest active member! She regularly works at The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and does outreach like Camp I Am Me, which benefits young burn victims. Besides her busy volunteer life, Prada competed in AKC & UKC obedience until she was 11! Prada has more on her plate than many adults!
“Every time she’s running around the house like a puppy or sprinting down the sidewalk after a 2-3 mile walk, we say ‘thank you IPC’ and smile.”
-Michelle, Prada’s mom
