Mitch and the Stairs

Hi Everybody! It's me- Mitch!

Maggie said that I can post because I'm just so excited to tell you all that I climbed the stairs all by myself - with mom's help, of course - but I did it!

I'm pretty much at the bottom here!
Mom was behind me and kept placing my paws where they should be as I climbed higher and higher! Look what a big boy I am! Maggie was watching me from the bottom at this point!
OMG this is so exciting! I can see the top and all this neat new stuff to sniff that I've never seen before! Mom has always carried me up the stairs and plopped me on the grooming table and I've never explored before.
I've been in this room before - sitting in the bathtub! But I'm usually carried up and dumped in the tub! I always wanted to sniff that whale stuffie! Mom says that used to belong to my Uncle!
So this is where Maggie sleeps when she comes upstairs with mom and dad at night! I sleep in my crate downstairs in the laundry room. I don't mind - I love my crate. I even have my very own fan to keep me cooled off on hot summer nights!

And this is where they stash all the good stuff that I'm not supposed to chew! I was wondering where that bikini stuffy went that Stanley gave Maggie for her birthday! And here's the pink piggy that Putter gave her! She's still in very good shape! Maybe I need to change that! hehehehe I've never seen this purple elephant before! I bet they hid him away when I first arrived at the homestead so I wouldn't rip him up! Very clever! It's kinda cozy here! Let me squeak on this toy to get Maggie all riled up!It wasn't too much longer that mom helped me down the stairs. She was in front of me and placed her arm as a stopper so I wouldn't tumble down head first. Mom says we'll have to post again so that you can see me in action! She needs dad to man the camera so that she can help me!

Thank you everyone for all of your wonderful suggestions and encouragement! It means a whole lot to me! I'm going to conquer these stairs - you can count on it!

So until next time .................

Love ya lots,

Mitch the stair climber!

Hey! Pretty soon there will be no stopping you! When I was a pup if I couldn't get up something I climbed it, but the humans had the stairs blocked off so I was older when I got to do the stairs. Now I get bedtime privileges up there -- you just have to work it right with the people!
