The Things we Do

For our Kids
 
Years ago our little McKenzie developed weakness in her back legs.
As it got progressively worse she was having trouble handling
the steps up to the wood deck.
 
So Dad built a ramp along side the deck for her.
 
 
Several years later we built a new larger deck and a ramp
for the pugs had to be part of the design.
 
 
 
 
Visitors get a kick out of seeing the pugs
run up and down their ramp
and the grandkids think it is fun also.
 

 
 
Fast forward to early this year.
 
Hazel had a nagging injury and
we needed to limit her jumping off of things.
There was a bench at the end of our bed
and a box at the end of the bench to help
them get up and down.
 
They would use the box and the bench to get up,
but jump from the bench down, bypassing the box.
 
So Dad to the rescue again!
He built this nice ramp for the kids.
 With matching carpet even!
 
 
Love you Dad!!! 
 
We are the PugRanch Kids

So cute the pugs have their own ramps! Emma has her own stairs for the bed...Sequoia should really use them but she is a rebel!

Oh my mom said that is exactly what we need by their bed also...see sammer will jump on the little stand at the end of the bed, and jump up on it, but I like to skydive right off of the top of their very tall bed...mom and dad cringe inside when they hear my feet hit the ground..my mom wonders if your dad could come over at 11:30 am on Saturday and build one for us too?

Love those ramps, Id love to do a similar bed ramp but we are not handy. We just lift them on and off.

Awesome! We got a platform bed and took the legs off of a bench for Payton, so we think what you've done here is fantastic!
