Stairs for a senior dog

Well last night it took my almost 12 year old blue heeler mix (50 lbs dog) 3 times to jump up on my bed which is about waist high on me (2.5 - 3 feet). So I need to figure out a stair or step system to put in front of the bed so she can get on it.

Has anyone done this for a large senior dog, I know there are may for small dogs but most of them would flip if she tried to use them?

My Jack Russell (not large, I know) uses a foot stool to get up on the bed. There are a lot of larger ones and stuff... maybe that would help him out?

Ikea has this awsome Pet Bed type thing that goes at the end of a Double bed, it a bit lower then the bed, and a half circle.
I wanted to get one but it was pretty expencive. I'm sure you could make/build something liek this for her without to much of a cost.

Skykat, I found this really neat ladder for older pets here.

http://www.shophometrends.com/

In the search engine, the item # is 505409

It's called "Lulu's Ladder".

If nothing else, you could get someone to build it for you and cover it in carpet. I doubt you could for that price tho.

I have a dog ramp that is telescopic. It goes from 60" down to 30". I use this one for our van and truck. If you have enough room, you can use it on the couch or bed. But there are also ramps just for beds. I purchased mine from dogramps.com. They also carry them at PetsMart and petcareRX. Good Luck!!
