trying out the ramp in the car for the first time

Today we're off to the vet for the fourth and last anti-inflammatory injection that is part of Penny's recovery from extracapsular surgery on her left knee, so in anticipation of the trip we practised using the new ramp to get into the car. I thought getting in would be easy, as she is used to the see-saw and the 'dog walk' in agility, and also because we have been using our own makeshift ramp for weeks now.

But she surprised me at how quickly she decided it was not scary to walk down the ramp!

Ooh - Penny looks like she's doing well! She DOES learn quickly! :-)

Hey - have you seen the "human lookalike" game we've been playing on our blog? Come over & check it out! Who do you think Penny looks like? (OR looks like Penny, I should say!)

Honey, I thought of your and Hsin-Yi when we bought out ramp, because I remember Hsin-Yi did a post about ramps one time and pointed out a problem that we have now encountered - in parallel parking there's no room to put the ramp out from the car door.

But so far I've been able to shift the car back from between other cars so Penny can use the ramp.
