My Creative Space + Mr Limpy Houdini Dog

If you've been reading my blatherings on twitter or facebook, you would have heard about the trials and tribulations of poor little Mr Limpy Houdini Dog.

He's been having some problems with a knee that keeps dislocating, so after a couple of vet's visits, some arthritis shots, and some painkillers, he's off to see the surgeon tomorrow morning to get the final determination on a knee reconstruction.

He usually spends most of his time lying on his granny blankie on the couch, but at the moment, he has to just lie on the floor as he can't jump up onto the couch with his dodgy knee.

After my nephew came to visit after school yesterday afternoon to help me take poor Mr Limpy to the vet, I arrived home to the following.....


I'm assuming it's a Mr Limpy dog accessible stairway to the couch.... creative yes?

Oh poor Houdini ... that can't be any fun! And then a trip to the vets to add to the stress. Hope the surgeon can do something to help and that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

I would suggest a ramp instead of steps for the dog. Also, if he sleeps on a human bed at night, a ramp to a blanket chest is an easier transition (especially if you have a 15" mattress). My corgi has his ACL replaced, so this is experience talking.

Best of luck,
