Glad it all worked out for you Bill. I have to get a small stool for my Grandma just to help her get into my truck. :doh:
I have hand grabs inside above the doors. Maybe that would help her also.
Tried a car ramp. He needed 2 steps.
Everytime I'd lift him, he'd do a spread eagle with his feet and wouldn't fit the door opening. The dog dr. said it's due to his weight. His body weight makes lifting him under his ribcage uncomfortable. Sounds logical.
The tailgate load takes lawn mower / atv ramps. A fishing pole, and a hot dog as bait and he got the idea. Dog mower ramps
