Hi, it’s me, Arctic, bringing you my last pupdate of 2023. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I am wishing you the best for the new year. I sure like this Christmas thing – I woke up one day and had so many new toys to play with, treats to eat, and beds to sleep on! Can Christmas be all the time?!

Anyway, let me roll back to the beginning of the month. I started the month by hanging out with my best friend, PADS Merritt. He came to spend a weekend with me, and we had so much playtime and adventuring together. It’s hard to settle down when my best buddy is around, but after a day when he’s still around, I finally realize I don’t need to rush all my playtime.

I spent a big part of December getting ready for the holidays and celebrating the holidays. I went to the mall with my humans, participated in some Christmas parties, dressed up and attended lots of different Christmas dinners. I also got to spend a lot of time at home having chill time with my humans, as they both had lots of time off of work. I enjoyed the time relaxing and rejuvenating after lots of days working at schools leading up to Christmas. I am ready for a fresh start back with the kids, and excited to show them the new skills I have been working on over the break.

I am looking forward to a new year filled with learning, adventures, puppy playdates, and love. I wish you all the best in all you take on in 2024. See you in the New Year, when I will officially be 1!
