A German shepherd and a small white dog sit side by side at the top of a staircase.

"Butch moved into Thor's world as though he had played there forever. There was only one problem--he seemed baffled by steps. Thor appeared, to protect him in his moment of confusion. They sat side-by-side debating the crisis until Butch, courage in paws and tails over nose, plunged down the staircase to the grass below." Thor, p. 52.
