Stairs

Dachshunds are not supposed to be running up and (especially) down the stairs but I can't seem to help myself. My family has to put up baby gates to keep me in one place. Sometimes, I sit patiently and wait to be taken up or down, but other times I just run, run, run. My mom is getting pretty angry about it and I do NOT like the gates blocking me! She insists it's for my own good. . . and I heard her say she wishes we had a one story house! Me, too! :)

Oh.. really? We didn't know that we as dachshunds should not run up and down the stairs.... and seriously we love to do it especially in the morning and evening.

Hopefully, our mom would not consider to prevent us to run up and down the stairs especially because this morning, Bella felt down directly about 5 steps from the side of stairs... so scary! Luckily nothing got broken.

Licks,
Adele, Vincent & Bella

Hi Frankie,

Please be careful on them stairs.

Hi Frankie Mae, I don't like stairs much myself. My mom has gates too. When my people had the 3 short hairs all at once, they had to keep the gates up because sometimes the short hairs were pretty ornery (so they tell me), butt that was before they got very much old.
I know your mom means well. She is just being a hover mother. Give her some of your grrreat snuggles.

Hi Frankie,
Actually Veda is the only one who can go into people places. He's a service dog in training.
Texas and Bubbles just go in dog stores...RARELY. lol

Hi Frankie
We don't get to go up and down stairs either. Mom has built a ramp so we can get from the back door to the yard.
Penny likes to go up and down stairs when mom isn't looking. She has also been caught on the kitchen table.
Love Ruby & Penny

Frankie!
It is not good for us to go up and down stairs. My stairs at home are small so I cannot that.
Take care!
Hugs
