A little random fact about Laci

Laci our extremely lovable, extremely spoiled Cocker Spaniel is afraid of stairs.  She won’t go up or down the stairs that we have in our house.  We’re not sure if it’s a matter of them being too steep for her or if she’s never had to climb stairs before or if she’s just flat out afraid of stairs.



  1. If it’s any consolation, Baxter and Ridge and Kenya are all afraid of our stairs (they’re steeply pitched and uncarpeted). Elsie will go up, and sometimes down. Pinot knows no fear and plows either way. :o) It think for our guys it’s the pitch and the slip factor (hardwood is slippery). But who knows what goes on those heads of theirs! :o) How’s Shawna?

  2. See now I don’t feel so weird. I know that there are other dog owners out there that have dogs that aren’t fond of the stairs! Today is a good day for Shawna. We went for our usual walk and she had a little extra bounce in her step!

  3. Hooray for bloggin’ Cockers!! It is great to meet you guys and we think it’s super that Shawna in such great shape for a “gray beard” 🙂

    And as far as steps go, Simon and Scarlett don’t do them anymore because of age (or just plain laziness!) but Shelly is fearless of them. Although, she is terrified of plastic yard bags 🙂

  4. Laci is afraid of trash cans. We have to wait until after 8 am on Mondays (our trash day) to take the dogs for a walk so we don’t run into anyone dragging a trash can out to the curb. It really freaks her out….Last time she yelped like someone had kicked her and she cowered pretty much the rest of the way home.

  5. We are so glad that she is doing so much better.
