1. She came out of the crate on her own this morning, made her way downstairs and outside with the rest of the household pack.
2. She ate (after I gave in and mixed some canned food with the dry).
3. When Cabell came up to me at my desk for some loving, Gigi stood up, stepped out of her crate, and came over to me for some of the same! She also came up to the fence to greet Clay when he came home this evening.
She was giving some signals that she was almost ready to play with the other dogs when we went out to the dog yard late this afternoon. Maybe tomorrow.
Lana, Hank, Rex, and Radley have formed a pretty good play group and they share the shed as their bunk house at night. Lana rules when it comes to food, and yet she remains very lean. They play hard. Rex is slowly normalizing, but it's not a straight line progression. He is putting on weight and looking better, however. I still haven't tried the drugs on him as I'm hoping he will come around without them. He's still a fairly neurotic shepherd, but that's typical. I'll feel that he's recovered when he has stopped chasing his tail long enough for the hair to grow back to the point that he has a normal looking shepherd tail. That will be a while.

|She moves more like a horse than a dog, it's beautiful to watch.|
|She's just lovely.|
