      Thor is...not a smart dog.

      Yesterday I was sitting in my office and heard a crash from the living room. A few seconds later Thor comes running into my office, all "I'm fine! I didn't do anything!". This is where it's really useful to have Dropcams throughout the house. I went back to the living room feed and watched what happened. He was sleeping on the landing and rolled over in his sleep - right down the steps into the living room.

      Since he appeared fine I couldn't help but laugh. Dropcam lets you export video clips from the feed so I went to save the clip. When I tried to save it under the name "falling off the steps" I couldn't.....because I had already saved a clip under that name 6 months ago. I watched it and sure enough it was the exact same thing - same location, same sleepy roll, same fall down the stairs. Labs are supposed to be smart, you'd think he'd learn that was a dumb place to take a nap.

      I uploaded the video to facebook so I can't embed it here, but it's publicly shared. Behold Thor, in all his goofy glory. (click HD since Facebook likes to diminish quality so much).

      I saw that on Facebook- Thor is a hoot. You make me want to get a drop cam.

      Oh my, I'm glad I watched that. I was envisioning the steps down to our living room - Seven! You only have two. Poor, silly boy, Thor. He looks like he has no idea how that happened.

      Poor Thor! Dad ought to put up a guard rail. What a rude awakening.

      On the same note, Mardi loves to sun herself on the deck, right at the edge. She would be able to fall off, under the bottom rail so I'm always moving her more onto the deck. Falling 3' would not be good for her and the flowers underneath.

      We got the Dropcams when we got Thor. I think it really helped with his transition from crate to free-roam since we could still monitor him at all times (especially if he didn't know it). I work from home so I would have the Dropcam stream running to keep an eye on him. We have another one outside (we have a doggy door so he gets free roam back & forth). I could quickly nip any unwanted behavior in the bud. It's interesting how well behaved he is when alone in our dropcam covered areas. Not so much in the master bedroom - he's figured out how to open the closet and will drag our shoes all over the room. So that's the one room where he doesn't get unrestricted freedom!

      Who uses their brain while sleeping?! It is definitely one of those moments you say, "thank god he is pretty!!"

      I love the dirty look he gives the stairs. Kimber will fart herself awake and then gives DH and me the stinkeye: how dare you wake me up!

      So funny! Mocha rolled off the couch one day. I wished a 1000 times we had a camera!
      He didn't get hurt, just his pride!
