Puppy vs. Stairs: Adorable Maltese Tries Making "The Climb"

For many puppies, one of the biggest challenges they need to overcome before entering dog-hood is mastering the dreaded staircase.

If you ask me, there's nothing cuter than watching a tiny puppy try and tackle a great, big flight of stairs. Regardless of the breed of dog, they all seem to struggle with the same issues: their bodies are too short to take the steps properly, but too long to really be able to pause comfortably on the individual steps.

While these tiny pups try to find the best way to overcome these size-induced limitations, hilarity ensues for those around them. Don't believe me? Watch these 10 adorable videos and see for yourself!
