Some Assembly Required

December 26, 2008

The world wasn't a perfect place and never would be, but just now, watching dawn come over her godforsaken city, it seemed like a damned good deal.  "Origin in Death" by Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb ♦♦♦♦♦

You know, my oldest offspring was born 28 years ago last week (yikes!). Additional offspring and a few grandchildren have followed during those 28 years. In all these years, I don't recall ever having to assemble a Christmas present either the night before or the morning of Christmas.

assembly requiredUntil now.

A gift from J2 for Puppy-butt, who has a hard time jumping on and off the furniture in her golden years.


She waited patiently while Mr. W. did the assembling...

Checking it out, amidst bribery attempts and great urging...

semi success

We tried to help by putting her on the steps... here she is, right before she jumps to the floor!

not so much

So, not so much. At least not yet. It will just take her some time to get used to it.

But it's pretty darned clever and a very thoughtful gift. Thank you!

It is funny how animals don't seem to think things are the great idea that we think they are. My in-laws spent 2 weeks building a wonderful, insulated dog house (complete with heated sleeping pad) for the old hound dog that "took up" with them and he sleeps outside on the ground. I am sure Puppy Butt will realize how nice this is soon enough.

That is the coolest contraption, I love it! Our little Pepper Dog could use one of those thingies too...I'm just mentioning it in case your puppy dog wants to send it back to Santa, hee-hee

We had to get stairs for one of our cats last yr - not much assembly - took her a couple minutes to use it - she didn't want an audience tho, now she doesn't mind if we see her using it
