With the cooler temperatures, my puppies tend to be a lot more playful and friskier every time they go out. And they try to go out all the time. I say puppies, but really they’re adolescents. Here’s Emmy, my sweet, shy puppy, who I fell in love with when she was 4 months old. She’s never overcome her fearfulness of strange things and people. But I love how she’s become so comfortable with our family and our baby. She’ll be 3 in April.
