Shadow Needed More Adjustments in the RV to Make His Life Safer and Easier!
I knew his eye sight was getting worse and it wasn’t as good as it use to be, but I was shocked when I let him out to do his business one night before going to bed and saw him fall into the fire pit!
Thank God we did not have a fire that night! We put up additional lights right away so he can see a little better!
Then I started working on a way to make it much safer for him. I got some lattice an attached metal stakes to it and put a fence up around the fire pit. It only takes a second to put it up or take it down, so now Shadow is safe and it works like a charm!
Inside the RV we needed a couple more adjustments to help him out so I wanted to eliminate some furniture but I still needed something to put the laptop and heater on.
My solution was to make a corner laptop stand that only comes out a few inches from the wall and it is high enough that he can walk under it! Shadow can now get up turn around 3 times and lay exactly like he was before he got up (all without getting bang up by the metal pieces on the recliners)!
Dave is doing his part to help Shadow adjust to the aging process, he built him a new ramp! This ramp is much longer which makes it less steep than the one we had.
Shadow may need some side walls up on the ramp before too long. His balance isn’t like it use to be, (sometimes he walks like a drunken Sailor) but so far he is doing okay without them.
I think Shadow is now all set, now maybe I can move onto my next project!
