4th visit today: I updated you during our phone call. I let her play a little bit... I just didn't have the heart to put her right back in her crate. She is so funny. She was rolling all around on the pillow beside her crate and making funny noises. She played with the tennis ball too. It rolled away one time and she stared at it and then pounced on it like a cat. It was hilarious! I did take her outside right before I left and she walked around the backyard. She wanted to pick up the small pinecones (I pulled 2 of them out of her mouth) then she found a tennis ball, picked it up and marched up the stairs ready to come back into the house. She stretched out on the floor when we got back inside... she looked ready for night night.
