Adopting a doggo is a huge responsibility that takes a lot of time, patience, and money. Unfortunately, not too many people out there fully understand the commitments of being a dog parent. It’s all fun and games during their puppy years, but when the doggos start getting older, that’s when the difficulties kick in.
Senior doggos need a lot of attention and looking after them is both expensive and time-consuming. Fortunately for those senior pups who are blessed with loving parents, they get to live a comfortable life even during their twilight years. Just like these three senior doggos in the video below.
These three lucky puppers are Bodhi, George, and Sam. They are all elderly furballs belonging to Sonya Karimi, an occupational therapist from New Orleans, Louisiana. These pups were adopted from the local animal shelter, Sonya thought of the stairlift when she adopted Bodhi.
The dog mom realized that Bodhi has a torn knee ligament and this made it extremely painful for him to go right up and down the stairs. Because of her job, Sonya sees a lot of stairlifts being used, and that gave her inspiration. But instead of spending thousands of dollars, she decided to build one herself.
Sonya is pretty good with her hands, and with her experience building things, this doggie elevator or “Doggie-vator,” as she called it, would prove to be no trouble at all. After the stairlift was finished, the fur parent thought that it would take time for the pups to adjust. But they got used to it in no time.
The stairlift also comes with a “docking area” at the bottom of the staircase. Looking at the design and the mechanics, it’s actually pretty impressive. Sonya explained that there are no stairlifts being sold online, that’s why she decided to make one. Well, perhaps she could be the first manufacturer, and she already gave it a catchy name. Check out the Doggie-vator in the clip below.
