Ok, we got Gracie about 2 weeks ago. She is about 3 years old. First few times we had to leave her alone in the house we kenneled her and she did ok, but you could tell she isn't real fond of the kennel. We got her from a county animal shelter where she had been for about 5 weeks. Once earlier when she was having the run of the house while were outside for a little bit, she opened the fridge and helped herself to a couple of hotdogs that were on a plate. When we are home with her she has never even sniffed the fridge.
