help my dog stay chill

Two years ago, I rescued an older 10lbs shiba inu/chihuahua mix who has a lot of fur and overheats easily. We've already had a few hot days in Los Angeles this year, and I'm concerned about keeping him cool and healthy, especially since we've moved to a new house that gets a lot warmer during the day.

Help me build a special dog ramp

Help me design a ramp to fit over a staircase for a dog to go up and down. My parents’ dog has arthritis. My parents house has a hardwood floor staircase that she can’t go down comfortably. She slips and frequently falls down the stairs and it’s obviously painful and stressful for her to go down. I’d like to build her a ramp with some ridges (i.e. pieces of wood set up as crossbars so her feet don’t slip). Two catches inside. [more inside]

Dog's Behavior

I had a 13 year old standard poodle that unfortunately developed lymphoma. For those 13 years, we were as close as a dog and owner could get. When she no longer could stand, the decision was made to put her to sleep. On her last day, I went to pick her up to carry her to the vet's appointment. I was utterly surprised ( and disappointed) that she viciously bit my thumb and would not let go. Why would such a gentle 13 year old LOYAL dog do that at the end?
