One man and his dog, went to mow…
Buddy the dog goes everywhere with wheelchair-bound Greg McQuillan – including on his ride-on lawnmower. The cutting crew (above) were on the job at Roberts Ave, Bayswater last week.
McQuillan, who has lived in Philomel Cres for 10 years, helps out friends and neighbours in the suburb by mowing lawns cheaply or for free.
He has been in a wheelchair for 13 years, after injuring his back in an accident while serving in the army.
After owning pekingese dogs for 30 years, McQuillan bought löwchen Buddy about 15 months ago, with money raised through a community Givealittle page.
“He goes everywhere with me,” McQuillan says. “Into the supermarket, doctors appointments…
We’ve covered about 3500 kilometres in the wheelchair over the past year.”
