Sharing A TKR, Dog, and Stairs Story

It seems there are a number of dog lovers among us. It’s always fun regaling stories about how they impact our lives. Here is an experience I shared with a friend’s four-legged family member.

Doing stairs seems to be a common concern with us tkr folk. Some can do them with ease. Others cannot do them at all comfortably. And, still others, can do them but it’s not a pretty site. I fall into the latter category. Well…I walk downstairs, but at a slow and careful pace. I definitely need railings. Going upstairs is doable, but slow going. Recently, I received some insight into what I must look like to others. Here’s the story:

At the time I was dog sitting a Doberman Pincher. He is a beautiful, friendly, and boisterous creature, for sure. At first he would walk downstairs with me, kind of like the buddy system. Then he realized that I was going too slow. He began to stand at the top of the stairway and wait for me to walk down first. As I walk downstairs and reach the ground surface, I turned and looked up at him.

I notice he is looking at me with his head tilted.  It’s quite entertaining, the look of perplexity in his eyes. He’s probably wondering, “What’s up with that?” He would stand there for a few moments with his tilted head and wondering eyes. Then, he would merrily walk down the stairs and join me at ground level.

You kind of had to be there to completely enjoy the experience. 🙂 It brightened the entire stairs episode, for sure. Pets are cool.

Hoping this brings a chuckle to your soul and massage to your innards.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

P.S. This brings back memories of his large dog bark. That’s what a dog should sound like. However…I didn’t know him that well. My only experiences with a Doberman were the attack dogs from movies and media. So…one day he’s in the kitchen. He starts vigorously barking and hurriedly running in circles. I’m freaking out. What’s going on? Is he so hungry he’s going to eat me? (Standing up, his back came up to my waist. He was one BIG dog.) Does he have to go to the bathroom? I wasn’t warned about this behavior. What’s going on?

So…I offer him some treats. He sniffs, but keeps running in circles. His barking intensity increases. Then, I open the outside door. Woah…he makes a mad dash outside as if there’s no end in site. He needed to relief himself. Whew…I was saved. My flesh remained intact.
End of story…
