Making good strides

Winter seems to be enjoying herself more these days. She really likes having time to wonder the backyard and sniff and explore to her heart's content, especially her last turn out of the day. She is sleeping with us now in an ex-pen and has adjusted well. She is quiet and waits for us to signal the start of the day in the morning. She has an endearing habit of "collecting" things in her crate or bed. She doesn't chew or harm anything - she just seems to like having them . We don't mind and it's become sort of a game. She will also sneak things off the back deck (my rubber boots, for example!) and squirrel them out to the small woodsy area of our backyard. Our grey has some cute antics when he wants us to engage with him and Winter has started to mimic some of them! She is a pretty and very sweet girl. I wish I had the time, patience and skill to take better pictures of her but sadly I lack all three! :) She is the only foster we've had that needed no help at all from us in learning stairs! She just taught herself and on day one - amazing since she is such a young girl. She and Journey are getting to know each other and now try to beat each other out/in the door. On walks Winter now likes to spend time right next to him at his pace.
