I had the WORST scare a few minutes ago - was getting ready to let the "kids" outside for the first time this morning - as usual, they were all gathered at the top of the steps - and Joe got too close to the edge and FELL all the way down - landed on his back - then then ran and hid under the futon. I coaxed him out and he seems fine - think more scared than anything, he went outside with the others - moves all right, but bet he's going to be a sore puppy later. I don't think I've been so scared in my life! I could just see him with a broken back. He's sitting here by me now so guess he's okay, but he sure gave his mommy a bad scare! I've always been afraid one would fall down those stairs - because they all "congregate" on the top by the door - I'm constantly pulling one of them away from the edge - usually Jack!
