One Big Step For Puppykind . . .

Sometimes taking that first step is the hardest one of all. Many small pooches often face the same internal struggle as little Murphy here — the desire to be outside vs. the big scary step/stair/doorway to get outside. Watch his philosophical debate transpire in this awww-dorable video. Although my once tiny pooch was not a fan of steep stairs, he now takes off so fast, I wonder if his feet even touch those steps at all!

I go through this every morning with our puppy when it is time to go downstairs to the kitchen. Once he gets down that first step, he gets on a roll, but he really doesn't like that first step.

My pup always has a hard time taking the leap outside. Since she was the first one of my dogs to have this problem, I thought it was just one of her little ticks (she's a rescue dog, so she's got em)

I like when he goes all the way to one side and then has to back up to turn around. And his reaction when the other dog flies by. And of course the barking at the step. :P

I love Murphy! :dog: It reminds me of me debating over whether or not I should get out of bed in the morning.

Loved this video! My little Lenny was terrified of our steep narrow stairs (12 of them) - Now he kind of slides down while hugging the wall - it is so funny to watch!

Awww! He sounds (and looks) like a mogwai. :love: Basil was terrified of going down the stairs when he was a pup. Now he basically flies down. :rotfl:

I love how he's wiggling and snarfling and moving around like there might be an easier spot to his left or something. :)
