And not a little tree, nor a little dog. Marley is a flatcoated retriever mix. He weighs 60lbs. He bounded up there like a cat, no he did NOT use the ladder, but it's handy that it's there for scale. That is an 8ft ladder. He turned around and came down head first like a cat. I am so confused. I've heard of dogs climbing trees, but never before have one of mine done it.
Not the best pic, we're in the middle of a snow storm, and I was upstairs thinking I'd get pics of the kids sledding (why yes we do have a mound of dirt in our backyard - great for today!) When h told me about this.
