We're back! If you follow us here, you might have caught that we scooted over to St. Louis for a long weekend. St. Louis has been Mike and my spring tradition for several years now, but this year, we were lucky enough to bring Pierogi and Gilly along. We took lots of walks, ate way too much BBQ and Gilly experienced a few firsts as a growing puppy...
Over the weekend, Gilly took his first road trip (this was little Pierogi's), stayed in a hotel for the first time (Pierogi's first stay was here)...and mastered the stairs. We were so excited! Both our front and back stairs, at home, had been giving him trouble - so it was a big moment. There he is in stair-climbing action in the photo above! And those were no baby steps :)
I like to think that Pierogi was Gilly's biggest motivation to nail those stairs - out of a desire to keep up with his big brother. Either way, once Gill got the hang of the stairs, he wanted to climb up everything in the city...
Look at this guy go!
After a while, he was just showing off! ;)
Did your dog battle the stairs as a puppy? I read that it can be an issue for all size breeds, but what was your experience?
Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days. Because life's more fun with your best (furry) friend by your side. So grab a bone and follow along as we stop to sniff the flowers...
