This was her first means of getting out and roaming the neighborhood on her own when she started feeling the need for more independence a few years ago. And with the dog, we feel safe letting her wear her headphones and listen to music or books, whereas we don't let her do that when she walks on her own, because of the need for her to stay alert.
