Summer is the best!  I get to spend time playing outside with PADS Iroko, and we like to lay down together to watch our raisers work in their garden. 

I love visiting new places, especially if I get to wear my vest.

I went on my first road trip and met a special kind of working dog called a ‘farm dog’.  She never wore a vest, but taught me the importance of returning to my raisers when we heard our names. 


This month I figured out that ‘kennel’ means that I need to go into my crate — usually for a nap!  I am working on my ‘off switch’ when I am at home, which means that I relax on my dog bed instead of sneaking off it to see different things around the house.
