Maybe I shouldn’t associate my child with various animals beyond just human, but it’s fun.
She mews like a kitten, squeaks like a bird, and behaves like a puppy.
When a large part of Jeremy’s or my family would go for a walk with the family dogs they behave in an energized, joyful manner. Their pack is their and all is well. Their tail is high and their trot is spunky. Coraline behaves much the same.
She turns into the group, sits upright, very alert and intent on the family. It is much unlike when I walk alone with her when she is relaxed and content and calm.
