Willow is not a pushy dog and won't even nose open doors that are ajar. At least she wasn't pushy. This week I had to make a run out of town to get some bids for work on my country property. Willow has learned to associate suitcases or duffle bags with us leaving so when I carried mine out she bolted from the house as the door was swinging closed. Fortunately for me, she ran straight to the car and stayed there until I could scoop her up and take her back into the house. Now I'm going to have to be diligent in making sure I know where she is when I walk out the door. Although she had the whole family to keep her company while I was gone, I still got a lovely greeting and cuddles when I returned a couple of days later.
