Willow continues to enjoy her time at the Irwin house! She is a lovey-dovey girl who continues to give kisses to her human and furry family.

Although Willow will go up and down the outside deck steps, she hasn’t gone down the steps to the man-cave (furnished basement). Perhaps this is because there are twice as many steps to the man-cave or because they are not “open” like outside steps.

Willow is quite the ‘counter cruiser’ and loves to try and snatch items off the kitchen counter.

She has only been crated once while foster mom and foster dad were out of the house for about 2 hours.

In addition to chewing dog toys, Willow can often be seen chewing sticks from the fenced in back-yard.

Willow continues to be a sweet, lovey dovey girl! She enjoys being around the resident dogs and loves to give them kisses!

Willow sleeps by foster mom and foster dad’s bed, in a dog bed as she doesn’t jump on the bed. It seems like Willow is starting to learn her name!Yellow Labrador retrieverShe continues to chew as puppies do, so we’ve had to ensure that only dog-friendly toys have been out.Willow is hitting every developmental milestone, including but not limited to:

  • Ripping down the hall to see what is out of the front window, when one of the resident dogs barks at someone walking by the house.
  • Running up the deck steps to get a snack when she hears the word “treat!”
  • Stealing laundry left on the floor, parading around the house like she is Queen B!

After a recent storm, Willow brought a dead baby bird who fell from a tree nest and gave it to foster dad. After foster dad tossed it in the trash, Willow went back outside and retrieved a second baby bird who was also in the fallen nest!

Willow came to our house on Friday afternoon, so she has been with us for two days. Right out of the gate, Willow has been outgoing and friendly! Of all of the fosters the Irwin’s have had, Willow is definitely the most outgoing they’ve had!

Willow loves the resident dogs and gives them and the foster humans lots of kisses! She goes up and down steps without any issues.
Yellow Labrador retrieverWillow had two accidents in the house, but it’s the foster dad’s fault for not taking her out when the foster mom told her to take Willow out!

She likes to get into the 10 inch kiddy pool. Willow dunks her entire face into the pool. She’s a real character!

Some family will be fortunate to have this gem of a girl!
