Dog Doesn't Understand How to Go Up Stairs

More on PawNation: Dogs, Funny
The person who uploaded this video to YouTube gave it the title, "Dog doesn't understand how to go up stairs," which frankly we find a bit judgmental and reductive. When you watch the video, you will see that the dog negotiates the stairs perfectly well, but backward. How can someone say it doesn't understand how to climb stairs when it started at the bottom, and now it's here (at the top)? Let's not sniff at those who think outside the box. Cheers to you, dog, for discovering the pleasures of non-comformity, and not climbing the stairs a certain way just because "society" tells you to.

perhaps he has arthritis. I know my knees hurt less when I go DOWN the stairs backwards; my daughter's doctor told her to do that when she hurt her knee skiiing. Perhaps I should try the dog's method on the way upstairs as well. If you watch closely, he looks like he's going to turn around a couple of times...he puts a front foot on the higher step...then he pauses as though he's thinking "no, that will hurt!"and puts that foot back on the lower step.
