    I've had a bunch of back surgeries so I'm not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds either. You're lucky, you only have that restriction for 2 months

    I have my son lift the Abby onto my bed since it's too high for even steps to reach. Last night Senor Otis got slick. There's a laundry basket near the bed. At some point during the night I must've knocked the pillows onto that basket because this morning I woke up and he was in my bed snoring. The big headed bugger made his own steps from the laundry and pillows

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    Great suggestions! I will try these and see if she will use them. If not, I am getting the dang hammer and nails out myself and pray I don't hurt myself. Hubby will really get a if I do!

    Probably an extreme suggestion....but I put my bed into storage and sleep on just box and mattress on the floor....not because I can't lift Schultz but I was too afraid he would hurt himself jumping up and down.....just a thought....

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    Tell him you joined one of those groups when you joined EBN.
    We got some of those steps at a garage sale for HRH. She wanted NO part of them. she can jump on the bed though if she wants to. I just thought the steps would make it easier.
    She doesn't sleep with us by her choice. She has a bed on the floor beside the bed and goes there to sleep when she decides it's time. She won't stay on our bed long, but she will jump up on it if Bruce is eating something that she thinks he just might share, she jumps down as soon as she figures out she isn't getting any.
    If we put her on the bed to snuggle she will not stay. But she will sit between us on the loveseat for hours. She has some very definite ideas of what should and shouldn't happen. And I swear she can tell time!

    We put a long bench/ottomon type thing at the bottom of the bed that both are dogs are able to jump onto. Its about a 1.5 feet high. Looks nice, holds extra blankets but its really for the dogs. Its upholstered and padded, works well.

    Beds are for people, crates are for dogs. Just saying.

    Zoey, thought about it after I posted it. It was a little out of line and opinionated. I apologize if I offended anyone.
