Simon, a six-month old Lab, may or may not be showing this younger pup how to go down the stairs — but it sure looks that way.
As with most pups, 8-week-old Daisy, managed to get up the stairs just fine, and probably without thinking first about the far scarier return trip — i.e. coming down.
When she hesitated, the owners called for Simon, who very patiently — except for a few head bites — showed her the way.

We question the wisdom of dressing your dog as Santa Claus.
We question the wisdom of calling your dog, while he’s wearing Santa pants, to come down the stairs.
We question the wisdom of posting it on YouTube and giving other numbskulls the idea of trying it at home.
But we don’t question the cleverness or the agility of this dog, who, saddled with the silly costume, manages, amazingly, to get downstairs just using his front legs.

For the past two weeks, on my way to the park with my dog, I’ve been stopping to see a cat.
He (or she) has been living underneath the wooden stairs in front of an empty rowhouse in South Baltimore, depending on the kindness of strangers, who have left him food and supplied him with a little cardboard house.
With temperatures dropping, and snow coming, and reports that he was getting kicked around on the street corner, I brought him home last night.
Now he needs a home.
To inquire, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
