What can we say... Shadow's family has LOTS of questions...


Shadow has been going up the steps since we brought her home at 11 weeks.. but... she will NOT go down them - or even attempt. Is this normal? How long before the pup will feel comfortable going down the steps? (I don't want to continue to spoil her by carrying her down if she should be doing it on her own by now!)

"9 months"... "a year old"... ugh! You've got to be kidding me!

I don't so much mind carrying her down the steps...but she thinks it's a game and backs away, prances at me, runs around, barks, etc. It can take almost 10 minutes for me to even catch her sometimes! The only good thing is - since she knows how to go 'up' steps... she just keeps going up another level - and then another - till finally I have here cornered on the top level! Darn split level houses... :eek:
