The dreaded stairs

Beacon has become much more willing to take stairs with one exception - the dreaded work stairs.  For some reason Beacon does not like climbing open staircases.  Beacon does love going to work with Scotty.  In order to get into the office Beacon must climb the open stairs.  It was with much dread Scotty took Beacon out of the car and thought about the 20 minute process to get Beacon to climb 5 or 6 stairs.  Guess what?  Beacon surprised us all and took the steps on the first try.  Not one to let a teachable moment pass, Scotty encouraged Beacon to go up and down the stairs several more times, each time praising Beacon for the wonderful job!

It was a moment of puppy raiser pride!
