It's bad enough that so many Americans are overweight.  Now we're passing it on to our pets.  It's estimated that nearly half of all American canines will be overweight by 2022.  That's right...our dogs are getting so fat that many of them can't even walk up stairs to go to bed.  So instead of being more active what do we do?  We invent something to make stairs easier on dogs...

I mean, I understand making life easier on older dogs who just have bad joints.  But to invent something for pets because they're overweight?  Come on! 

But it's been done.  It's the "Stair Of The Dog 2022".  It's a device that is similar to the one that helps elderly people go up and down stairs by sitting in a seat that is electronically moved up and down the staircase.
