Wagon that turns into a Sled

A dawgperson I know told me about a manufacturer who makes wagons which turn into sleds ~ as in press a lever, the wheels go up and the runners come down. Unfortunately I only run into this gal a couple of times a year and have forgotten the name of the company. I checked out Jaida & Bendyfoot's blog for resources (great list by the way ~ I've bookmarked you for future reference !!) but didn't find anything. As I recall, the manufacturer can make it to spec but also has stock items of different sizes and load capacities.

Does this ring anybody's bell ? Or Bendyfoot ~ have I missed something in your list ?

Thanks krdahmer ~ I have seen that one. The one my dawgperson described sounded perfect for winter travel in the city with Ceili (moving from snowy to bare spots constantly) as all one had to do was press a foot lever and the wheels moved up and out of the way and the runners came down.

I will ask around with the handicapped pets board and see if they know this one...you're right, it sounds really good for all-weather regions!!! I'd like to know about this one too....

Mum3, I found this link, but I don't know if the wagon is actually in stores...but it might be a starting point...

Great minds think alike ~ I found that too ! I think I'll have to hike over and hang around her dawgpark for a couple of days !

Awww rats...I finally ran into my dogfriend who gave me the website millside.ca ~ it's the same wagon that is sold at Sears (and doesn't get shining reviews) for $130 and the wheels and runners have to be exchanged.

Okay, all you inventors get to work ! We want a lightweight wagon that turns into a sled at the touch of a button or a foot lever (without having to take off the wheels). And we want it big enough for a Ceili-sized dog ~ so at least 36" long, preferably 38"-40". I want an all-terrain pneumatic wagon/sleigh !!!!
