A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN OR HELL

I've created a monster.

All three of my Chihuahua perma-pups can't negotiate the wood stairs because I polished them. Now, I have to carry the girls up and down.


Still, they try to follow me and go head over paws usually ending up in a lump on the landing or stuck on the stairway half-way up with their toenails scratching the wood as they desperately try to hang on.

Then I have to come to the rescue. It's getting a bit tiring.

Can't carpet the stairs because the girls think carpet is a big wee-wee pad.

Guess those ugly rubber strips are in our future.

Is this is where we learn to tuck & roll?

Your dogs, too?!?! I was feeling so inadequate because my dogs (a corgi and a shih tzu) believe no carpet should go unchristened.

I am glad I am in such good company!

I just wish I had some brilliant solution for you. Back to feeling inadequate!

Wait a minute. This just occurred to me, because I have holes in my brain.

You polished…stairs?!?! You POLISHED stairs?!?!

Do you have a lot of insurance on someone? Or just a death wish?!
