Back home after holiday

Tara:

So we got home and it woz nice to be back with Home Sniffs, but the BEST bit is that I learneded how to climb stairs!

Aren't I clever?

The day after we got home I followed Mum up the stairs.  Our stairs are different from the holiday stairs.  They were wood and brown and slippy and really steep!  Our home stairs are soft and carpety and narrower, but still steep.  So I was really brilliant of me to know about holiday stairs and then go up the home stairs, wozn't it?

So now I can go up and sit on the Big Bed if I like!  All by myself!!!  Without Cato.  He waits at the bottom and is all wimpy and not brave enough to follow me.

But there is one weird thing.

They change.

They are all nice and interesting and mountainy when I go up them.  It is exciting and I am clever.

But then when I get to the top and I have had a sniff around, when I go to the top of the stairs to come back down... well they change.  They get all steep and a bit dangerous-like and I don't want to go down them by myself.  So I have to sit up there until Mum or Dad come and fetch me.  I can climb down when they are with me, but I can't do it by myself.  Cos of the steep dangerosity.

Oh, and it is funny.  Sometimes I can't climb them.  There is this thing that has appeared at the bottom of the stairs.  It is white and metal and barred.  And sometimes it is open, and I can go up and come down again with Mum, but sometimes is it closed!  And then I can't get up. (Mum: that'll be the child stair gate then ;) )

But I am really clever, aren't I?  Learninging how to climb the stairs.  It is really good fun!

Today Dad waited till i had gone up, and then he gave Cato a treat!  A biiiig treat!  And then another one!

the stairs were being all high and steep and scary, but those treats are delish!  

So I was extra specially brave!  And i came downstairs all by myself.  And Dad saw how clever i am, and i got two treats too! Haha!

Stairs can be really tricky when on the way down.. 

Laceys like you Tara, she'll go up and down, our stairs are pretty average and not narrow.  But Donte will only go up, he doesn't like the down part! Lol 

Oh you have a stair gate. 

When I first bought my two home we had put the stair gate up. Just one problem, the gaps between the bars were too wide, because they just slipped between the bars and ran up the stairs. Well they were puppies! Lol

I put the stair gate in before Cato came to live with us - and exactly like you, it was USELESS.  We never expect how ridiculously tiny they are going to be as puppies, do we?

However, luckily we kept it, and now it is coming in useful.  It is fun for her to climb the stairs when I do, and come back down with me.  But less fun when I am working and she just goes for an explore, leaving Cato worried at the bottom, and me oblivious on the computer.  Then she goes and whines at the top for someone to help her down. :bye2:

Funny how she comes gallumphing down the moment she hears the rustle of a Calcium Bone packet.

:roflmao:
