Ok, so today Kona proved just how fast she is….
I was taking the pups out to go potty after their dinner…
Our deck is 10 steps above our backyard…well, we do have a child gate that was closed, however, Kona has seen how easily brother Cotton can stick his nose in the edge and pop it open enough to get through…sister Bella, however, not so much…anyway, so here I am walking behind them with Kona’s Ruff vest in hand…
Next thing I know, she flies over to the gate, shoots her nose in and is zipping around the corner to go DOWN the STEEP stairs !!!
I dove !
I hooked my arm around her left rear leg (no right rear) and she was not happy….got a growl……I had to keep my arm around her while putting on her vest…(wild child doesn’t like her vest on….acts like it’s a “naughty thing” like a muzzle…….ahhhhh, so we have a deal, she lets us put it on for the steps , but ONCE we reach either the top or the bottom step, not a step further, we remove it….yup….)
Ok, so I got the vest on and I assist her down the steps….remove the vest, she trots off and goes potty…then acted like she was going to follow her sister further away from the steps. I took this opportunity to run up the steps to grab the gate to now put it at the bottom of the steps, blocking an upward attempt…well, I was most of the way up the stairs when I hear a clattering behind me…….yes, any guesses? Kona was halfway up the stairs….slipping, yes, a little controlled falling on one step or another……..I race back down and put my arms around her and assist her the rest of the way up…….then, she was just happy as could be…….like, wha??? See, I could do it!
uhuh…….scared the crap outta me!
My wild child….my independant girl…she’s a “MyDo” girl.
sneaky sneaking always thinking cattledog.
I think I have a new gray hair………
