It's good to know that your friends always have your back ... or your head.
When the stairs proved to be a challenge for his family's newly-adopted kitten, Tennyson the German Shepherd dog was there to lend a helping paw. He started off trying to lead his tiny feline friend a few steps at a time with great patience, but when it became apparent that the little ball of fluff was extremely bad at this particular task, he began to suspect that he needed to do more.
Apparently Tennyson's people are aware of his penchant for helping.
"No, let him do it himself," someone off camera says. Tennyson listens...for a moment. And then he takes the kitten's entire head in his mouth and calmly carries him up the troublesome stairs, depositing him safely at the top.
Tennyson snuggles the kitten at the top of the stairs, as if to say, "No hard feelings, right? I did what I had to do."
Guesses are that figuring out the stairs will be high on the kitten's list of priorities going forward.
