hello erin »

our scardey cat. . .

Tucker spent the first 6 months of his life in our old house. A one story adorable “beach cottage”. We’ve moved up considerably in the world into an old Spanish two-story. Guess what that means. . . STAIRS. Evil, evil, wooden stairs- that tucker REFUSES to go up and down by himself. At first it was adorable– “oh, look at the puppy! he’s such a scardey cat and wont come up the stairs. Lets carry him!”. but now, now it’s just insane. He whines and whimpers if you’re up and he’s down, or he’s up and you’re down. The only way he’ll make the trek up or down the stairs is with a gentle shove. Yes friends, I push the dog  down the stairs on a daily basis (which might make me an awful dog-mother).We’ve tried bribing him with treats, leaving him until he comes up on his own, I even got down on my hands and knees and showed him how to do it- but nothing works (except apparently a shove in the right direction). He is perhaps the silliest dog ever, but look at this face– we can’t possibly say no to this face.

    Brooke - Awww poor guy! He’ll get used to it though! We moved in October into a home with stairs, and we had to walk down the stairs one step at a time, trapping our dog right in front of our legs. My son was at the bottom with a treat in his hand, and we would move slowly down! Eventually she had no choice but to go down, because we wouldn’t let her go back up. 😉
