Paiton's roommates wanted to celebrate her with some photographs so I stopped by with my camera on a sunny afternoon this spring. I was greeted at the door with a curious and sweet hello. Paiton's house is warm and welcoming and she received all the scratches, ear flips and love. She loves her snacks of carrots and cheese and I was so happy to have been able to give her a little carrot which she took from me so kindly. We went for a walk and lounged in the grass while Paiton chewed on some sticks. It was a wonderful golden afternoon with these three.
