    Chester will walk up a whole flight of stairs.. but not down. Though he will walk down the 3 steps from my sliding glass door to my patio..and the couple steps from my kitchen out to my breezeway. A week or so ago I held a treat at the bottom of the basement stairs and with my daughter next to him, taking one step at a time.. Chester made it all the way down. The boy will do ANYTHING for food though!

    So, I have a large victorian home for the time being. Both my 2 pugs and my newfoundland do use the stairs. Only at night though. My oldest pug (almost 11) is very unsure of the stairs. She usually likes either to be carried or have someone by her side. Teddy bear (newfie) is also getting to be older and I don't want him going up and down the stairs. He has a habit these days of missing stairs. I am afraid he is going to get hurt. We keep a gate at the bottom of the stairs. At night we all go up together.

    We are, however, in the process of buying a 10 acre lot and are going to build a nice big ONE STORY home! I am really excited! My grandmother jokes that I am going to end up with a pug and english bulldog farm!

    My youngest will do a death-defying bunny-hop maneuver down the stairs, propelling himself down in a rhythemic fashion until he crashes at the bottom. Up is no problem at all! The older one can go up and down fine--but it took her a few months to master that!

    That would be a wonderful farm to have! Funny when we bought our home we did make sure it was a 1 story for the bully's sake. I just didnt want to have any reason for him to get hurt although the way he plays sometimes i dont think it makes much difference. :p
