The World is Flat (Don’t go Down the Stairs!)

I Won’t Go Down, I Won’t Go Down, I Won’t Go Down

What is over this huge ledge?  I’ve reached the edge of the world.  Mommy is standing lower than me.  I think she’s dropping into the abyss.  I can’t go over the ledge, I won’t.  Let me just lay down.  I won’t move. Not for anything.  Not for treats.  Not for the clicker.  I’m not moving.

People are going by. Some are stopping and saying, “You can do it, Cooper!” I will not move. Look at that ledge. Mommy is saying silly things. She says the earth isn’t flat. She’s asking if I’m a member of the Flat Earth Society. I’m not a member of anything, but if there is a Flat Earth Society I think I’ll join. I bet they don’t go down steps.

Mommy keeps trying. She dangles the treat but I only get it if I go over the ledge. I’m NOT moving. After a half an hour she finally gives up and says we’ll try again tomorrow. She picks me up and carries me down the stairs. Success! Today it is good I’m not a German Shepherd!

Love from Cooper!

P.S. Mommy and I went back to the stairs again the next day. Do you know how easy it is to go down stairs. I’m a pro at it. I guess the world isn’t flat!
