The other day I went out for a few hours and when I came home Yogi came over to say hello to me and Gunny was no where to be found. I got scared that something had happened to the poor boy. I called him and called him and he didn't come. So I went over to the stairs and looked up and there he was, standing at the top of the stairs afraid to come down because the gate at the bottom of the stairs had fallen over! This super big and super tough dog was scared of the baby gate! I felt really bad and wondered how long he had been up there, afraid to come down. I am guessing that he knocked it over with his big tail on the way up. Poor boy! The gate is always leaning against the wall and it rarely gets knocked over. We only using them for feeding time.
