Our oldest pup, Mei-Mei, turned 12 last month. Like any old girl, she’s having troubles walking down our wood stairs. Yesterday she fell down the last 2 which really scared me. I had seen little carpet strips you can put on your stairs to keep them from being so slippery so I was off to Lowe’s this morning to get some for my old girl. Of course the girl in the carpet department had no idea what I was talking about but pointed down the aisle where the by-the-foot carpet runner was. 12-feet of runner and a roll of carpet tape and Mei-Mei’s problem is solved! Leo’s scared of the stairs now but atleast Mei-Mei can get down them a little better. The cat likes the runner too but no one really cares about her.
