This month the short raiser was super busy with work. It was decided that Almond go and visit HRH Empress and have her and her staff look after her while I make sure that the short raiser gets her work done. It was nice to be the centre of attention again for a while, but I did miss Almond and sometimes I would even go and look for her; just in case she came home early. Once Almond came home, it was time for some serious training. I took her with me and the raisers into grocery stores and to the library. I also showed her that walking along busy streets was not that bad… it helped that the raisers were there to give her snacks to make her feel better.
