Chaos the dog has a wonderful way of keeping herself entertained: Stairs.

Shorter and blurrier but sill cute: Part 1.

This is my primary method of locomotion until at least 10am.

I'd rename that dog Slinky if he were mine.

If your back is itchy, that's a good way to cope.

I used to do that when I was like 5 years old. Lie down and a flomp flomp flomp my way down the stairs. Avoided any major head trauma but I'd get pretty fun bruises on my hips and shoulders. For some reason stairs were my #1 spot for childhood funtimes. I'm sure my parents loved that.

I think this must be what our dog is trying to do when 7am rolls around and he's between us in the bed. Too bad the stairs are a good 15 feet down the hall. ...little shitass is lucky we love him.

In veterinary medicine, it is well know that any pet named "Lucky" will be a medical trainwreck.

Incredibly cute, and their handyman/painter will also be pleased.

I love it how some mornings, he makes it to the first landing, and then, really, just has to take. A. Little. Break.

This is why Boxers are awesome!

This is one of many reasons Boxers are awesome. Here is my favourite though. I have long been convinced that Chewbacca was Foley edited from the sound of a Boxer singing, which is what you hear between barks on that video.

Sadly, ours was so abused she doesn't bark - it took years for us to get her to woof and you have to really, really wind her up. But she does sing again, and we love it when she does. Plus, you have to laugh...

My friends and I used to do this for hours on end when we were kids, using sleeping bags as toboggans. It really is as fun as it looks.

Requirements: Long, straight, carpeted stairwell; sleeping bags with silky nylon exterior.

Directions: Get in sleeping bag, slide down stairs, climb stairs, repeat.

(Note that this is in Canada, with fairly high-pile carpet and the pitch of the stairs meeting strict code requirements. Do it on those super-steep English stairs with one of those thin-ass runners and you will die.)

What rolls down stairs alone or in pairs
rolls over your neighbor's log?
What loves any snack and fits on your back?
It's Dog, Dog, Dog!

It's Dog, it's Dog, it's big, it's heavy, it's woof.
It's Dog, it's Dog, it's better than bad, it's good!
Everyone wants a Dog! You're gonna love it, Dog!
Come on and get your Dog! Everyone needs a Dog!

I used to have a little dog who entertained herself with a different stairs game: she would carry her ball up to the landing, drop it down the stairs, furiously chase after it, repeat. Very handy for when I was doing homework and wouldn't play with her.

9. Do not name your ferret "Bitey"

Unless it's actually an opossum, and lives in a monorail train.

Do feel free to get a second pet so that they can be named "Dental Plan" and "Lisa Needs Braces", though.
