As Jinx gets more white fur on her face, her behavior seems to get more conservative too. She’s only five, but in the four months since we moved, she’s lost some of her zest for exploration and her social skills. So every day we head out for a walk. Pasadena folk tell me that this dog park near the tennis club is new. A couple days ago, when we visited, she was content to just poke around and sniff the occasional rump. Today she got more into it and actually sprinted around a bit.
