After a few minutes of searching for him the other day, we discovered Dewi stuck on the stairs.
Not a big deal really, except that he had been stuck for about 10 minutes like this:
Only ONE step from the bottom!
Oh, the humiliation.
"Hey! Over here!"
"Dude, I could really use a hand."
(Just a little background: The Boys are confined to the first level of our home; this is why we haven't "taught" Dewi how to maneuver the tall wood stairs. He does fine with porch/patio steps. And it was the darn cat who got him in trouble!)
Thanks for the compliments, everyone. He was cute and pitiful all at the same time. :)
And I agree hardwood floors (esp. on steps) can be dangerous, that's why we confine the boys downstairs. I will just have to watch him more closely so he doesn't get stuck again.
I could use it to my advantage when I need him to be still for a photo though!
darn cat!!! lol ...i just cant get over the look on his face :(
The smooth surfaces might be more treacherous for dogs than we appreciate, especially going downstairs. I almost wish I'd left the horrible old wall-to-wall carpet; our wood floors are nice but slippery. They say it helps to trim the fur away from the pads, less slippery. We have ugly nonskid throw rugs at all the takeoff and landing zones.
I put nonskid sand in the paint for the basement stairs, harder to clean but a lot safer.
