The £1,500 Dachshund Stairlift


We gotta tell ya, we thought WE were living the dream with our $25 stool at the side of the couch that we use when Dad rarely lets us up there, but THIS really takes the cake.  A £1,500 stairlift just for Dachshunds?  Wow.  Thanks to our friend Mrs. Drummond for sending the link to The Daily Mail, here's an excerpt:

Climbing the stairs can often become a struggle as you get older – even when you have four legs. But it is no longer a problem for these three dachshunds after their owners bought them a £1,500 stairlift. Sheila and Harry Lee installed the lift after one of the dogs, six-year-old Pippa, had to undergo a £5,000 operation on her spine.
They had been concerned about Pippa and their other dachshunds – Millie, seven, and Heidi six – straining their low-slung bodies as they negotiated the stairs to their beds. ‘We saw an advertisement for the stairlift and thought “Why not?”,’ Mrs Lee, 57, of Ossett, West Yorkshire, said yesterday.

I need to show this to my middle daughter. She was joking about stairlifts when we were talking about the two storey house that her sister and brother-in-law just bought. The lift really will be easier on those doxie backs so I don't see why not.

Now asking hubby to make my two mini's a ramp for the couch will be easy! Thanks ;)

That is brilliant! Love it. They look so adorable. I think that photo will have put the idea into a lot of people's heads, especially for older dogs.
