Sorry guys! I have been busy and forgot to update the thread

Brody's injury is healing well. It wasn't infected as I suspected and it is much smaller than it was.

Tricia, he still isn't using the steps without us putting his feet on the bottom one first. I couldn't find the sticky carpet pieces you mentioned, but we did buy a piece of carpet and covered the steps in it. Brody wants to get into the bed and we sit up there and call him, but all he does is move around his steps and keeps trying to jump without them. He can't make it that way The only way I can get him to climb up the steps is if I get off the bed and put his feet on the bottom step, then he will climb up to the bed. Je just won't do it on his own We were even using treats to tempt him up, starting with a treat on the first step, and then the second, and then the bed. He just doesn't get it

Do you think that a ramp would work for Brody?
Poor boy... his little legs were not intended for stairs.
He is so adorable.

I am not sure.. but he goes up and down the front porch steps just fine. The way he is built though, maybe it is too hard for him to go up the narrow step stool stairs.... but he does make it up them when I put his front feet onto the first one. He hops right up there.

I know that you will find a way to help Brody get to the bed Tanya.
Do you have a video camera?
I would love to see Brody in action.

I wish you could see him too! I don't have a video camera...Maybe I should add one to my list for Santa

You know, it's not even that I mind lifting him up into the bed. I just thought he might like to be able to get up there himself.

I think he actually likes having you get out of bed and picking him up!

Brody and his servants!

Brody might like to get on the bed by himself....
That may not be his destiny.

We love you Brody.

Yes we do, we love you Brody! Give your sister Dori a kiss for us!

I'm trying to think what you could use that wouldn't cost a small fortune, or scare Brody. How about a triangular pillow, normally used for eating/reading/watching TV in bed? Stores like Wal-Mart/Target usually have them. Or a wide, sturdy plant stand made out of wood? Without the plants, of course, and placed at the foot or side of the bed. One of my students has taken in his grandmother's geriatric cat, and has built a "bridge" to his bed with used car tires. When I saw the photos of his solution, I went into hysterics, but it's really clever.

Awww, bless him!

I agree that Brody probably prefers Mum to come and lift him up!

All of this trouble to get Brody into the bed, and I just have to turn around and kick him out Turns out Brody enjoys sleeping sideways in between us. I woke up to his back leg kicking my head at about midnight last night! On top of that he drools. I knew he drooled before, but I never noticed how badly. Yuck! I put him into his own bed a little after midnight when I couldn't get back to sleep from him kicking me. I was reluctant to put him out because Dori was sleeping with us too and I want them to get used to being near eachother, but a girl has got to get her sleep! He got me back by snoring twice as loud as he normally does.

Here's a fairly low quality picture I took of him with my camera phone for those asking. I have to wait until I get my camera back to take more. We were in the drive thru at the pharmacy and the lady gave him a doggie bone

A big beautiful smile was on that face because his head was on MY pillow which he was probably planning on drooling all over!
