Of course, ManSlave was so excited at the new delivery!!! Mmmm, well not particularly excited to have to carry a big box of heavy things up to the landing and then have to make it. But Gracie was on paw to make sure he had every screw and post in the correct place. She studdied the instructions hard and directed ManSlave whilst he huffed and puffed those wooden shelves into place with a balancing Gracie on each one, going higher and higher.
It was much bigger than the measurements on the internet. Yes the base was 40mm wide, but they failed to mention that the top shelves were double that. Oh dear. It looks like a giant tower and if the Parentals are not careful, they might take out a knee cap or two if they fail to walk diagonally from the bedrooms. Of course, it doesn't bother us and it was so we could be safe and not fall from the old one that was a pile on junk really. But to the Parentals horror, Gracie took a flying leap like one of those squirrels with wings, soaring around and around and landed on the floor running... she really is not a very dainty Devon at all. She likes to challenge running up the stairs and to be first to the top for kisses and pampering tummy tickles.
I, of course, was not part of the proceedings, I am too old for such things, but I did try it out once and then ran around the house Yawping. I am more for hiding in the box it came in and pouncing out on unsuspecting lilac and white kittens as they pass.
