After seeing the way Jamie welcomed and raised Alice as a pup in 2010, we were eager to see him welcome Nancy into the pack a decade later in 2020. It was everything we expected.
Looking back over the photos of Nancy's early days with the pack, I'm struck by how she experienced so many of the walks and places that Jamie and Alice knew so well. Nancy was only in Seattle for eight weeks, but that was right at the beginning of COVID lockdowns so she got lots of walks around town with Jamie and Alice because we weren't going to the office or going out in the evening. COVID was tragic for so many in those early days, but for us it was a gift to have a socially acceptable reason to spend so much time bonding with the newest member of the pack.
