It all takes time. After year and a half without a dog, Willa appeared . Highly emotional and completely adorable, peppery, canny, scrappy and semi-obedient, I think she's turning out very well. We all get along and are touched by her loyalty, which I think at this point in her life is really insecurity. She's a natural enthusiast and wants to know everything and go everywhere.
And of course . . . she's got a mind of her own.
