Love In An Elevator

March 1 | 2 Comments

What Floor, Please?I’ve found it!! The solution to my recent problems. It isn’t so much a solution for me as it is for my father. You see, we have a bunch of stairs in our house that have become rather difficult for me to navigate. My hips are bit worn and my knees are a worthy testatment to the many years of squirrel chasing under my collar. This has resulted in my father carrying me up and down the stairs. Don’t feel sorry for him, he can use the exercise. I have to run and wake him to tell him all about this.

Hitching a ride on a stair-lift might look lazy – but for Henry the bulldog, it’s an essential means of transport.The creature has such short, stumpy legs, that he is unable to negotiate the stairs at his home in Germany, near Hamburg.

When owners Henry Conny and Bernhard Schrader brought Henry to their farm as a puppy, it was easy enough to carry him up and down the stairs.

But now he’s an adult, Henry is simply too heavy to hoist – leaving them with a dilemma.But the pair, who breed horses, came up with a solution when they improvised a lift to transport Henry up the stairs.

Now all Henry needs to do is learn how to push a button to start the mechanism and he can glide up and down the stairs to his heart’s content.

I’m pretty sure this will stop all the talk in the house about an elevator being too expensive. My old man is going to love building this thing…but what are the chances I’m actually going to push that button if I know they’ll do it for me?
