Dog steps

My dog is getting old and has trouble getting into bed (the top of the bed is 30 inches up).
A few months back I studied what was available, found that ramps were the most common, so I built one.
It turns out my dog hates ramps.  She wouldn’t use it at all.  She’s not getting any younger so I decided to try steps.
Tonight I broke down the old ramp, did some cutting and came up with what you see here.  It’s a little uglier since the ramp carpet wasn’t big enough to cover this configuration but it’s good enough to see if the dog will use steps instead of a ramp.
If nothing else I’m sure the cat will take to camping out under it.
