Construction Day

Hi Friends,
Mom is being cheap. She decided to build a ramp for me to get onto the bed.  We got a board and covered it with carpet. I hammered a few nails in while Lily watched.

I started to get bored with the entire project after awhile. Mom I said, why? She explained I am to chubby to jump up on the bed. I whine and make funny noises til she picks me up. Once I am on the bed, I jump off.
30 pounds hitting the floor is not good. Mom said I sound like a cinder block. The truth is, she doesn't want me to hurt myself. Oh dear...I am tough. So we cut, hammered and layed the carpeting. ...then the little steps.

These are the weirdest steps I have ever seen. I will give it one try..where are the treats?

Okay one try it is. Guess where mom is? Online ordering a real ramp! BOL

PS We did a pretty good job I must say. However, I would prefer something a bit wider.


  1. We reckoned that looked like a good ramp. Our mum's last dog, Harry, had a little set of steps he used to get into the car. They were made for the caravan but they worked well for him for years.
    At the moment we can still jump!

  2. Hey Benny
    Looks like you did a great job with the ramp. Takes a real Guy to hammer like that!!!

  3. Hi Benny and Lily,

    I think you guys did a purdy good job on the ramp. Your mom has the right idea though. You don't want to jump off the bed and break something. Our mom bought me some stairs so I could get in and out of the bed when I was a little pupper. Me and Banjo still use them at night so we don't have to jump down during the night (Our mom keeps the bedroom VERY dark).


  4. you can be proud of your mummy .She take care of you very well .

  5. Hi there! Yea, that hammer looked delicious too! And, mmmmmm, love carpet! Your project looked fun, in a snaggle-tooth sort of way!!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  6. Oh I like your ramp! Looks really handy! Or maybe your mom can get the bed lowered... BOL!

  7. WOW, nice ramp! That is an awesome idea! Your Mom sure does love you!!!

  8. What a cool ramp you got. You need to patent that...

  9. That's a very nice ramp and carpeting too! You guys really rate! How nice that you're allowed on the bed! We aren't!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. That was the ol' college try if I've ever seen one - a valiant effort and esthetically pleasing as well :) I have a set of steps myself; even though Im an athletic guy, mom's be is SOOO high! She had to order the "tall" steps (three risers), and we got this cool thing that can either be steps of a ramp, depending on if you fold out the risers (from Frontgate.com). I will go up it if I have to, but would rather be picked up :) I do go down it, since my mom has also said it could be bad for our Frenchie backs to jump down from high places. Aren't we lucky to have such caring moms???

  11. I dunno, looks like a pretty good ramp to me! Maybe a little narrow but I bet you could learn to love it! Online ramps are expensive so we can understand. I am not that handy so had to buy one for my Moose for the car and it has been totally worth it but it was expensive!

  12. Mom is right that you are too short to be jumping off the bed like that. I hope she can convince you to use the ramp. I know its not cool, but it is really better for you.


  13. We think you did a pawsome job!

  14. Benny, you are such a great carpenter!
    I must say it is a fine looking ramp!

  15. You guys did a great job making the ramp! :) I hope you both got treats for working so hard!


  16. Wow...my Daddy is making me and Bilbo a ramp TOO...I will have to show him your Mama's design...This would be a good entry for Brutus's contest....
