Puppy Learns How To Use Stairs From Brother

April Livingston | June 19th, 2019

A two year old dog named Bowie lost his leg several months ago after ongoing health problems. After the leg was amputated, Bowie had to learn how to navigate the world all over again. His family helped him along the way, and he soon found creative ways to move around, including how to go up and down the stairs in the family home. The leg that Bowie had removed was one of his back legs, which meant he needed to be creative when re learning how to use the stairs at home. What he figured out was that he could lean against the wall and do a little bit of a hop when going down the stairs. This made it easier on him and so each time he needed to go up and down that is what he did.

When Bowie was learning how to use the stairs and began mastering how to do it, his family had a new addition to the family. They adopted a puppy named Zeppelin. The two dogs immediately bonded with one another and became best friends. Bowie soon became a role model for young Zeppelin and they were inseparable. So, it was no surprise when Zeppelin began learning how to be a dog from her big brother Bowie. They love playing together, even when other dogs are around. The family was worried that Bowie may be scared to play with Zeppelin as she grew bigger than him but she has been very gentle and even protective of her brother.

When Zeppelin (or Zeppy as her family calls her) got big enough, she wanted to climb up and down stairs like her brother Bowie. As she got bigger, they realized something adorable: she leaned against the wall and hopped down the stairs just like her brother. Even though the family tried showing her she didn’t need to, she still wants to use the stairs just like her brother, who she loves very much.
