Anything else you'd like to share? Copper is my daily reminder of what resilience and forgiveness look like. Her trust in me is the greatest gift. Just recently she stopped flinching when I touched her legs!
She loves begging for food and has it down to an art form.

SESSION NOTE: Although Copper looks very serious, when the camera wasn't on she was pretty relaxed and even had a snooze on the floor right in front of the wall box.
I've gotten to see her on some adventures and she's super silly and has a blast.
