I don't have any need for my dog to be particularly graceful. As a matter of fact, I find the clumsiness entertaining...as long as it's not a sign of something wrong! Max can clearly see fine, and he doesn't run into things. But he does trip over things and fall on his face. When he jumps out of the car or off of anything, he often loses his footing. And his method for descending stairs can best be described as "avalanche," he just sort of flings himself downward with no sustained attempt to remain upright and it always involves his elbows, knees and even head contacting the carpet more than once.

So, is that normal? The vet says his joints seem fine and his sight seems fine.
