Today Shiva violated Dr. Mitch's instructions by climbing (jumping) onto the couch. This is NOT because she doesn't love Dr. Mitch; rather, it is because the Red Dog's body sometimes is incapable of containing her full spirit. She was very sorry and hid her face so that she could hide her shame. Fortunately she seems none the worse for wear; however, her people will keep an even closer eye on her from now on. She also was taken for her daily car ride and stopped-by her uncle Stephen's house to say "hi" to him. There was much joy! She loves him almost as much as her own people.
