Gromit isn't so good at stairs. His legs are just too short, and his body too long. He has to hop. Daddy! had a carpet runner installed so that it's easier for Gromit (and ME!) to go up and down the stairs. My human sister Hannah was trying to lure Gromit down the stairs with a cookie, and it took him SO long to get moving. I'm just not patient enough. I couldn't take having that cookie waved in front of me any longer - so I swiped it. Go me.
