Is There a Lift at Your House?

stu sleeping

When I wake up in the morning, I stretch and yawn and take a few moments to face the day.

Ah me...I'm waking up. Give me a minute.

Ah me…I’m waking up. Give me a minute.

Then, I hop down….

Off the bed we go.

Off the bed we go.

…on to this little sofa.

Whew. I'm exhausted.

That took a lot outta me. Maybe I should nap.

Then, I hop off and wait. And wait. And wait. For the lift to come take me downstairs. My own personal elevator.

For some reason, I’ve stopped coming down the stairs myself, so I call for the Lift.  Maybe I don’t see as well as I used to? Maybe my joints hurt from carrying a tad bit of weight more than I should?

Or maybe. Just maybe, I like having my peeps at my beck and call.

My own personal elevators. Two!

Ah, what a life.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 11 years old in March 2017. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Are you kiddng? Around here, the animals have to herd the peeps. There’s no downstairs and no upstairs to worry about unless you’re talking about the outside apiral staircase to the roof and the sunset observation deck there.

    No, I don’t need a lift! When I wake up I do my morning routine, which includes stretching, rolling around, growling happily. Then I leap off the bed and wait for my Peep to get dressed. Then we go down the stairs with me usually going first. She lifts me into the car sometimes, or if the snow is too high, but otherwise I don’t need a lift!

  4. I got an elevator up to da bed and da couch too. Well, 4 elevators, but 2 of em are more reliable dan da udders.

    It sounds to me like Stu has got your (Lift) number! He’s no dummy, but the Peeps…not so sure ’bout dem…maybe not dumb, but extremely accommodating and every bit wrapped around Stu’s little paw claw! You have set a precedent, and one things for sure, nothin’ wrong with Stu’s memory, he remembers how cool the Lift was da 1st time, so naturally all a Scott with dat much brainy memory and such good servants has to do is wait…for da LIFT, dat is! Easy answer!! Stu has created da first eber UberLift for exemplary Scot Royalty and you are the downstairs to his upstairs! See? The write-up by cub reporter Riley-Puppy will appear in tomorrow’s morning edition of “Da Stuart Good News for a Change Bulletin”. Den every dogscriber will want a Lift of der very own at home!
    Love your new invention, Stu!

    Luckily we only have one floor. Sid would never go anyplace. We doesn’t do stairs or elevators.

  7. I get a lot of lift. Mama is always snatching me up, esp if she thinks there may be danger. She grabbed me tonight when she saw a strange dog on the loose behind us. I do have my own little step to get on the big bed , but I do need a lift to get in the car.

  8. Wowsa! YOu gots your peeps well trained Stuart!! Luckily, we gots only the one floor, so no needs to lift my heavy arse anywheres! BOL! Ma says “Thank Dog!” whatevers. Though, sometimes coming home from the vetties, I’m all drugged and she has to lift me up into the truck…all grunting and stuffs…I thinks she needs to work out more! Just sayin’…
    Kisses,

  9. It’s great that you have a lift, that’s a very helpful thingy. My lift went on strike as I was 9 months old, the lift boy said I’m too fat now…. scandalous… probably that was a lift made in china :o(

    Another name for your lifts, Stuart, is LOVE !

    Houdini has a lift – just like you. I myself like all four hooves on the floor. But you know come to think of it. I didn’t think Houdini even had legs for the first six months of his life. He never walked anywhere! Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    No lifts at our house. THEY even got stairs for the bed! So you are one lucky, pampered, and handsome Scot ( Elsa made me put in the handsome part).

  13. That’s the life!!!

    My lift even jumps if I look like I am going to try and get on the sofa

  15. I have gymnasium mats all around the bed because it is high and the critters are small. The gymnasium mat is to protect their joints but there will always be a “lift of love” available as necessary. ❤

  16. Cherry & Shadow says:

    Man -do you have the life or what!! We have to do the down & up on our own!! Sometimes we get a boost – but not like yours!! We will have to work on that stuff! Humphrey, Shadow & Cherry

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
