Stairs, Ramp, Both or Neither?

Many of you enjoy bedtime snuggles with a furry friend and, for those of you with lil ones, how do they manage to get up onto your big bed? I've seen several versions of stairs ($89-$159) and recently spotted a couple pet ramps ($79-$149) also for small or special needs dogs. Which of these could find a place in your happy home?

LOL I try to keep my dog OFF the couch, and people are purchasing products to make it easier for the dog to get up :p

Mine jumps. Actually, she more propels herself onto the bed.

I have my linen box at the end of my bed, so Bella uses those to get a step up onto the bed.

We bought stairs for my dachshund Ladybird, but she's still learning to use them. She goes up two steps, then jumps from there, which is kind of an improvement, I guess...

I have stairs, but not for a dog -- they're for my cat. He's 11 years old, and after I got a new bed with a much higher mattress, I noticed him having trouble jumping up on the bed. At first his dignity would not allow him to use the stairs, but now he happily uses them.

I have stairs but Cuba runs up them then jumps off the bed so I am going to try the ramp and see if I have better luck.

Someone gave us stairs like those, but my older dog (20 lbs) found them too unstable and narrow, and nearly fell off them. She just makes me pick her up and put her down now.

I have a St. Weiler - she can get pretty much anyplace she wants to.
