Her other big adventure was a visit to the neighbors' cabin- by herself. Winnie met the Alexanders' and their 17 year old dog Moose last summer, and we had a huge dinner of Swedish meatballs at their cabin this year just before we left on our camping trip. Sometime a couple of days after we got back from camping, we learned that Winnie walked herself over to the Alexanders' to say hi to Moose! Apparently Moose's mom was looking out of the second floor of their cabin and noticed Winnie sniffing around their driveway. She watched as Winnie trotted up to their cabin door and nosed at the screen. She let Winnie in, and Win walked into the bedroom to wake up Moose. They touched noses and said hi, and Winnie went back to the screen door to ask to be let out again. She trotted down the driveway, then turned down the path back to the Schommer cabin and walked herself home.
Meanwhile, we had no idea that she'd even left. Shows how observant we are! It's nice to know we have a neighborly dog.
