Misha | January 2023

Happy New Year from Misha! Misha has hit the ground running this year…or, more accurately, relaxing quietly on his fluffy bed. Misha is such a calm boy. He sometimes needs a lot of motivation to get himself up and running! Misha continues to love his training sessions...

Misha | December 2022

Misha would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holidays! This month’s snowy wintery weather has stretched Misha’s optimism a bit. He is definitely made for milder climates! He enjoys going out for bouts of zoomies in the snow but then is the first one to be back...

Misha is loving this extra-long summer we are having! The warm sunny days have meant we can still spend all day outside training and playing. Misha loves lounging around on the farm in between his training sessions. We are currently trying to narrow down which career...

As you are reading this, I will have started puppy university (as of August 2nd) – I have included “the last kiss”! Also, there may be some typos in this pupdate, because it’s the last one that I can get mom to help me write … and not sure how well she can see … as I...

Misha | June 2022

June was a mix of fun things and not-so-fun things. I received a clean bill of health from Dr. Chris early in the month, but later in the month, I think I got Doggie Covid… well, not really. It’s called a “Kennel cough. ” I mean that kennel cough...

Misha | May 2022

Talk about May Madness… it was actually GrandMAY Madness, as I got to hang out with all 3 of my Grandmas! My one “Gamma,” who I had never met before, stayed with us for three weeks. I got to go to a Tulip Festival with her and a Cidery! I went to the driving range and...

Misha | April 2022

April was a pretty good month. I went on a bunch of different hikes – some had lots of big puddles, and some even had snow at the higher elevations. (When my feet touch the snow, I tend to get the zoomies:) However, my favourite hike was when I found a big...

Misha | March 2022

I have been “springing” into a bit of action this month, but no robins are involved like last spring 🙂 I went cross country skiing a couple more times this month. I had a blast, especially running downhill and also meeting a couple of other doggies on the K9 trail. On...

It seems like just yesterday I was talking about “LOVE” in my Feb. 2021 Pupdate! All of those love things that I mentioned are still true and some have grown from “like” closer to “love”, such as training and even wearing my winter booties! Still top of my love list...

Misha | January 2022

2022 started off like a dream as I woke up at my girlfriend Sophie’s house. I was a well-behaved perfect gentleman, especially with their new wooden floors. The rest of January was not overly eventful, other than having my first sauna! I kept low to the floor where it...

Misha | December 2021

I think I was wearing something on every part of my body for all of December! It started off with wearing my neuter cone for the first 10 days, then it became a little more festive with my Santa neck thingy and my cool blue adventure cape. Then when the temperatures...

Misha | November 2021

I can’t believe that I have been with my puppy raisers for a year already!! Nov 14th was my anniversary, and I got to drive up into the mountains for a snowy adventure (just like a year ago, but I was really little and was only in the backyard). I had a photoshoot...

Misha | October 2021

October was so jam-packed I will try not to ramble on and just list the many ‘events’ that occurred (some will require a little bit more explaining); here goes: I had my first massage … well, I actually laid there quietly on the floor while someone else had a massage....

Misha | September 2021

I turned ONE year old this month!! (I used to be so little). I got to wear a funny hat and had a yummy birthday surprise treat in the backyard with a buddy! I was very patient with the hat, but by the end of the day, I wanted to eat it… well, not really eat it,...

Misha | August 2021

August was full of many new experiences! I went on the longest car ride of my life (I don’t remember the one when I was 8 weeks old so it doesn’t count). I ended up on the biggest boat of my life! There were lotsa skinny steep stairs that made me really nervous, but...

Misha | July 2021

July was extremely hot and smoky in the Okanagan, so time out and about was limited. However, I still got to see the alpacas a few times, golfed a couple times on the cooler clearer days and met my other two-legged sister finally, celebrated 10 months with my sister...

Misha | June 2021

June was a mix of everything! I went camping twice – one place even had cows! I got to go fishing 3x and I was so good jumping in and out of the boat when I was supposed to AND I got to kiss 3 fish before letting them go … they were all mom’s (dad got...

Misha | May 2021

May was an adventure month. I got to go camping at a couple of different lakes. They were way up in the cold mountains, and one morning my water bowl was frozen! So I have not gotten to swim yet, but I got to dabble my paws in the water (which made me giddy). We never...

Misha | April 2021

It’s April, and I’m growing up so quickly, but apparently, I walk like I’m captaining a sailboat – tacking right and left. I have to fix that soon so as not to trip anyone. And what rhymes with sailing? Hailing! A freak 15-minute storm while...

Misha | March 2021

Spring has sprung, and so did I…. I saw my first robin in the backyard and ran to play with it, but it flew away. Apparently, that will be the last robin I will try to play with as I have been told that I am not a bird dog in this lifetime. Oh, and I tried to imitate...

Misha | February 2021

I understand that February is the month of love…I love lounging in front of the fireplace and also love my snowy adventures. I’m not sure, though, that I love my snow booties, but I tolerated them for a bit.I love the playground, with see-through stairs and...
