Olivia has been coming around our house, almost daily, for the past ~3 years now. She's been in our house in fact. Last year I was sitting at my computer with the front door open and she boldly walked in. She gave me a smug look and stole a shoe. I followed her out and she dropped the shoe, sat down and looked at me like 'what do you think?' When Olivia had a litter of pups last year she brought them to our house. Me and the boys stood on the deck and watched as 4 pups played in my back yard. Olivia sat just a few feet from me and looked at me like a proud mamma showing off her kids. I've walked out to my shed with Olivia at my heel and as I worked on my bike (my shed is my bike shop) she sat at the door and watched me work. I don't know what the life expectancy is of a wild fox, but I call Olivia my 'old girl'. She's a sweetheart. We have an entire wall of family photos in our house, our best photos of our kids. And there in the middle is my old girl Olivia. She came around today and walked up and sniffed my fingers... just made me think how much I truly enjoy seeing her. I don't want to take her for granted. I don't know how long she'll be around, and I doubt she'll read this blog post (ha) but she's made my life better.
