Hello everyone. My name is Justin. I know I should have posted in the introductions forum first...but I kind of need some help fast.
here is my situation. I own a golden retriever named April. She is almost 15 years old...and has bad hips. Due to some family issues, I need to move out of my house now, and get an apartment. She HAS to come with me.
I had a first floor place lined up, but they rented it out from under me to someone that wanted it sight unseen. So...with first floor places hard to come by, I may need to settle for a second floor. April does not do well with stairs. So anytime a staircase is involved, I carry her. Unfortunetly, she is sort of big...and its not really easy on her or me for that matter.
I need to know if there is an easy way to carry her up and down a flight of stairs. I know it seems like a strange question. I think ramps of some sort are out... Do they make something that would aid in this????
Any help you all can provide me would be GREATLY appreciated... Thank you so much in advance.
Edit: Sorry..I actually read through some posts and found someone having a similar problem with a Lab... So Im sorry for not searching around and asking basically the same question. But Ide still like to hear some ideas for gettin her up and down the steps... Thanks!!!
