Sookie was at the front of the kennel, shaking, when I approached her. She allowed me to placed my rope on her and lift her out the kennel. I carried her to the play pens where she sat next to me. I placed her on the bench next to me and gave her affection. She was tolerant of my petting and did not give me an issue when it was time to go back.-V.LD
