My dog is going to kill my husband

One of these days my dog is going to kill him, I swear it. Anytime he tries to walk up or down the stairs, "Joe" is right underneath him, trying to get there first, as if there's something really exciting going on that he's going to miss out on. Sometimes it makes him slip and fall a step or two because of it. So for about a year now my poor husband has been swearing when this happens "That dog is going to be the death of me!!" and I think he may have something here!

You have to admit though, this is the cutests dog:

I'm concerned that little shit is going to cut me off while I'm carrying my 9-month old daughter down the stairs.

Yes he is. And he is so cute and funny!! I love him. Sleepy loves him too, even though the dog is out to murder him.

Kinda... but they have the same temperment etc. as the full sized versions, which makes them so smart and friendly. He really is the best dog I've had thus far. Except he thinks he's a cat.

I wanted a "lap dog". He weighs just 10 pounds... so that counts. And he doesn't shed, you don't have to take him for walks. he's just happy being with the family and dropping his toy at my feet while I blow dry my hair . You should see this guy run laps around the backyard though! HOLY FAST DOG!

Here's a Whippet:

You’ve got it all wrong; your husband is going to be the death of that damn dog!

I had an Italian Greyhound several years ago and he too liked to be the first to the stairs at record speeds. One fine day his suicidal tendencies got him killed when my foot broke his neck.

R.I.P. Jack, he lived 3 really moronic years.

My cats enjoy doing this.

Even when I see them and try to step somewhere else, they'll move under my foot. Stupid cats.

Does your husband care about the dog? I ask because although I am tolerant around animals, I don't neccessarily like them. They are dirty, nasty and foul creatures. And no matter how much I loathe them they always seem to run up to me and try to jump in my lap.

If they know how to use a toilet, too, I believe you have found the perfect dog.
