Foxie rarely ventures onto Young’s Hill (or anywhere, for that matter), without a doll or two. The other day she took a troll and a Dora the Explorer doll on a walk around the hill. Having a doll in each hand slowed her down a little, but she didn’t seem to mind.
Foxie has a ritual when she receives a new doll or one she particularly likes. First, she holds it out in front of her and gazes at it adoringly.
Then she brings it in close to her chest.
In this photo you can see the bright green grass that has grown in toward the top of the hill since the Taylor Bridge wildfire burned through the grounds of the sanctuary a few months ago.
