Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization

Elina and I have a special bond. She seems to know what I'm thinking. For instance, I built a carpeted ramp that goes from the floor to the top of a shelving unit. I noticed that whenever I saw Elina or her brother come down the ramp, they raced down at breakneck speed, as if they were fighting gravity - and gravity was winning. Once when Elina was at the top I wondered silently if it were possible for them to control the speed of their descent. Next thing I know she started walking slowly down the ramp and stopped - not once, but twice. Both times she looked at me as if to say, "Yes, I can, Daddy."
