With my uphill pup, Chex, I go roaming among the many rolling hills of the surrounding South Dakota grasslands. As you might guess, Chex is particularly adept at climbing these knolls; he always seems to reach the top before me. And, over the years, Chex has gotten pretty darn good at backing down those same hills without mishap. (Sometimes, for the sheer joy of it, my uphill pup and I will roll all the way down!).
Occasionally, if the weather is mild and clear, we’ll be joined by my downhill cat, Vertigo. I usually carry that fat kitty to the top of the hill. Like many overfed felines, Vertigo can be pretty lazy!
Luckily both Chex and Vertigo are blessed with gyroscopically-leveling ears and tails, so they’re never in doubt about whether they are ascending or descending, coming or going.
(Wish at times I could be so sure.)
