For a tiny puppy, an ordinary staircase can be as daunting as Mt. Everest.
Human mountain climbers rarely ever attempt to climb Everest solo, and as the below video demonstrates, the same thing seems to apply to dogs and stairs.
The video begins with an eight-week-old puppy standing at the top of a staircase, terrified to go down. Luckily, a six-month-old lab happens to be around to give him a few pointers. The result: A triumph of the canine spirit, and one of the cutest animal videos in a long time.
