Since last week's post about deaf babies learning to hear through technological advancements, I've been obsessed with inspirational videos. Today, I bring you an entirely different brand of feel-good scientific miracles: paralyzed dogs re-learning to walk after accidents. While it's sad to see them when they're hurting and healing, watching them trot across the screen at the end of the videos is motivational enough to keep you hooked.

Dusty

This three-year-old Lhasa Apso was paralyzed in his rear legs.

Mercy

Lots of positive reinforcement from mom helped Mercy take a little walk around his backyard.

Elbo

This little dude works on his walking to the sweet soundtrack of James Brown.

Ronan

You can read all about Ronan's story of survival in this video.

Holmes

This video is a little long, but it's fun to get to know Holmes and see his progress.

Maggie

After surgery, this cute little dachshund couldn't walk for a full month. Look at her hop now!
