Walking up the stairs is hard. Some days, you’re tired and just don’t have the energy to do it. Walking down the stairs is much easier, but we all must take on the dreaded staircase. Unless you’re lucky and live in a house with no stairs!

For dogs, the stairs can be even scarier. Dogs have much smaller legs than us humans, so what may seem like an annoying thing to do for us, can be impossibly difficult for a dog. Lila the basenji doesn’t like wooden stairs. But rather than be forced to remain on the first floor of her house because of this, Lila has thought of something interesting. Her solution? Walk up the stairs… backward! Animals can be ingenious at times, just like this dog who found another way to get himself water.

Lila’s owner isn’t entirely sure why she thinks this is the safe option for walking up the stairs, but he captured the adorable moment on camera to share. Lucky for Lila, her doggy pal waited patiently for her at the top of the stairs.

Does your dog have a funny way of going up and down the stairs? Let us know in the comments!
