Mom and dad have both been sick this past week. Daddy got it first and gave it to mom. Mom and dad were home with me on Wednesday and they both came along for my evening walk. Copley was playing in his back yard with his mom when we walked by. Copley's mom invited me to come over and play. I was all excited. I hadn't seen Copley in such a long time. We had fun running around in his yard. We were happy to see each other.
Yesterday mom spoke to an animal communicator. Her name was Suzy and she could understand me! Mom wanted to know why I was afraid to go up the stairs in our house. When I went to Kiera's house, I was able to climb the stairs from the deck to the backyard with no problem at all. Mom and dad just didn't understand. I told Suzy that I was afraid the way the stairs were made. At Kira's house the steps were open. Here at home they are enclosed by walls.I was afraid that hands were going to come through the walls and get me. Suzy told me that nothing was going to get me and it was safe. You see, when I used to race, the humans would put me in a cage in a special room with all the other dogs just before the race. Then I had to walk single file down a ramp to the track. The ramp went between bleachers where people would sit to watch me. Sometimes people would reach their hands out to me and this scared me. The stairs at home reminded me of that. Mom and dad where trying to help me over come my fear of the stairs. For a few weeks now, mom and dad have been leaving my treats on the stairs so I would see them as a good thing. Then mom and dad started putting the treats a little higher, gradually making me go higher up the stairs. I still wouldn't go past the 9th step until I talked to Suzy. Last night I went up to the 12th step! Today I went all the way to the top! There was a whole other house up there!I got to see where mom and dad sleep! They said I could sleep there too if I wanted to. I saw a bathroom and where mom has her bike and exercise equipment. Ben and Charlie came up too. They were a bit surprised to see me there. I stayed upstairs for a while. I was afraid to come down! I finally figured it out though. I am back downstairs with mom now. She still doesn't feel well. I followed her yesterday to make sure she was OK. Mom said I was her angel. Suzy spoke to Ben and Charlie too. It is nice that mom and dad understand us better now.

You did a great job overcoming your fear. It must have been such a relief to find out that the hands wouldn't reach out and grab you.
