Lucy has never had any problems with stairs. We have had her for 2 1/2 years now and she's had no trouble at all. Last night at 11 pm she was running down the stairs and tumbled down the last 3 steps. She was in shock, laying on her side and not moving for 5 minutes. We rushed her to the emergency clinic and thank god she was okay. Please send your prayers because she is still a little disoriented today. The vet said she probably would be for a few days. Has something like this happened to anyone else? Lucy is only 3 pounds. No more stairs for her! I'm still worried about her. Do you guys let your maltese take the stairs?
