There was one problem that we did not anticipate when we got Lotta, our little puppy.
Her tiny little legs are too short to make it down the stairs. She has learnt how to run up the stairs, but to go down she would have to leap from one tread to the next, and they are not wide enough to catch her. We have been carrying her down the stairs to the grass, but it has been driving me crazy, because she runs up again, following someone, and gets “stuck”.
I spent today fixing the problem.
I call it the Lotta Ladder. Now she can make it down the stairs all on her own.
I am really proud because I made it myself, in a day, by hand, (no power tools) and trained Lotta to use it (treats on every second rung helped). Lotta problem solved!
