• My dog Zeppelin gets halfway up the stairs just fine, but then proceeds to turn around and walk backwards the rest of the way. Why does he do this?


    I think he does it because he changed his mind. I know when I’m walking somewhere and change my mind, I just turn around and go back. So that’s what Zeppelin’s doing. Except when he turns around on the stairs and walks back, he’s still walking up. Right? Sounds crazy, but I’ve done it myself. More than twice.

    Or it could be that he’s just scared of the stairs and turns around so he doesn’t have to look where he’s going.

    No, wait! I think my first idea is better.
