new heights

I'm 8 months old now and I weigh 12 pounds and stand 12 inches tall (from my feet to my back). I usually use my height to my advantage but at times it causes problems, like when I want to get on and off the bed. I can't do it! This puts me at a disadvantage when Tad comes over because he jumps on the bed to get away from me. WHY he wants to avoid me is something I'll never understand because I am so much fun to play with.

32 - 12 = 20. I need some help getting from here to there. I thought of joining the track team so I could learn to high jump, but decided on another option.




It works!

Nice work Petra. My Mom's bed is pretty high too. Luckily she has a nice chaise loungey thing real close to the bed so I jump on that first and than on the bed! I thought I was quite clever!

Gosh...I can't believe you are 8mths old already! What a grown up girl you are! Hey, did you give Taddy something nice for his barkday?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Good job Petra. You are smart beyond compare. I have a piece of furniture at the end of the BIG BED that I hop onto to get on the BIG BED. Grammie had to put a rug on it so I didn't slip off.

You are a very smart little girl! Mom and Dad bought a special decorative storage bench thing for the end of their bed ebcause Sasha couldn't get on the bed by herself and Mom got tired of listening to her whine for someone to pick her up. It took my Mom 3 years to figure out the bench thing and it only took you a few months! You're a very smart pup!

I can't believe you are that old already. Good job on figuring out what will help you get on the bed. I don't have that problem.

Petra Girl!

You're an acrobat! I could totally see you resorting to pole-vaulting onto the bed if that stair step didn't work for you. (Maybe you could try the pole-vaulting anyway... just so we could see it?)

Goob love,
Stanley
