Viral Video: Pooch Climbs a Tree

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Some dogs sit on command, some dogs play catch, some will bring your shoes in the morning while others will hide them so you don`t leave. Well, one Colorado dog getting some local attention recently can climb trees.


Miranda Ziegler posted a video of her 6-year-old small boxer mix, Stitch, climbing their backyard tree on YouTube in August of 2014, but it is just now gaining traction.

The skill was discovered because Stitch has a habit of chasing squirrels."


Some dogs can fetch a ball, some can catch a Frisbee, some can play dead, my pooch, Mandy, can`t perform a single trick. But her wet kisses that she greets me with when I come home from work are worth more than a hundred tricks.

When I go to the park with Mandy and I witness other dogs fetching balls and catching Frisbees, I`m not jealous I simply enjoy my daily walk with my affectionate pooch.

This video of Stitch the dog climbing a tree is going viral, but actually videos of canines climbing trees are a dime a dozen, at the bottom of this page there`s a video of a dog climbing a tree on Johnny Carson`s Tonight Show

There are dozens of puppies waiting for a forever home at your local animal shelter, they won`t all be capable of learning tricks, but every single one will love you to death.
