This month Charm had a walk & talk with the trainers to see how she was doing. Her biggest struggles were settling and sniffing. She started to wear a gentle leader to help with the sniffing. She continues to make small progress with durations of her downs when out, which will hopefully help with her settling. At the end of the month, Charm started her first heat. While inside, she did not have regular public access but could go to school. We talked to students about why she was wearing a diaper. I also got her some presents for going into heat. It seems those gifts were big and better than her first birthday gifts. I guess it is a bigger milestone.
