Almond | January 2022

January was fun, with adventures in the woods and some new toys to chew! I also continued to work on my skills, and I keep getting better at ignoring all of the distractions when we are out and about. My short raiser got a new desk, and I helped the tall raiser to...

Almond | December 2021

Almond | November 2021

November was a slow and rainy month, but that was okay as my heat started, and all I really felt like doing was lying in bed. I also got to spend some time with a sitter this month, and she took me to visit my sister Pecan – we had a great time! I also got a new...

Almond | October 2021

October was a busy month for me. I got to visit Vancouver Island again and ride on a big ferry boat. This time my big sis PADS Anna was not there to help me out, but I think I managed okay on my own. I continue to work on all aspects of my training, including going to...

Almond | September 2021

Okay guys, so this month I became an only child. PADS Anna went to go and train with a new raiser, so I have the undivided attention of the Tall and Short one! This is a good thing as I am feeling extra spunky lately, and my raisers say that I am going through...

Almond | August 2021

The cooler weather and clearer air this month meant that we could resume our normal training schedules, go on exciting outings, and train outside more. We even had a puppy class at a park out in Burnaby! The tall and short raisers take Anna and I grocery shopping on a...

Almond | June 2021

We had some crazy weather in June. There was some rainy days and some super hot days. When it was not too hot out, we did our normal stuff, like shopping and walking around the neighborhood. But when it was too hot, the raisers decided that we take it easy and spend...

Almond | May 2021

I got to go and visit my good pal Empress again this month. We snoozed in the sunshine, and apparently, the tooth fairy had to work extra hard while I was visiting, as I lost the last of my 5 baby teeth. Loud and Tall (Empress’ staff) gave me cold things to help...

Almond | April 2021

This month started off busy and then got really calm. The weather was sunny, so it was decided that we all would spend time outside relaxing on the front porch. It was fun to watch the people walk by, and sometimes even other dogs walked by! Anna and I kept calm and...

Almond | March 2021

I am starting to get the hang of this! My raisers are so happy with how fast I am learning my house manners; I am especially proud of how good I am when they are working out. March was a big month for me, I got to visit HRH PADS Empress and her staff took me to visit...

Almond | February 2021

Well, I started my puppy-raising adventure this month. I was introduced to my raisers and my “big sister” PADS Anna. There have been so many new “firsts” for me that it is tough to write it all down. My neighbourhood is cool. There is an...
