August has been a fun month. I have been spending a lot of time outdoors enjoying the sun and exploring a lot of trails. I also had to assist Megan when she was teaching her courses online. I have seen many of my PADS friends like Nana, Hardy, Tira, Accredited Facility Dog (AFD) Iris and AFD Hero, retired breeding dog Samba, and released PADS dog Uno.

I got to go camping in Manning Park, sleep in a tent, and sit by a campfire. We did a lot of walking while we were there. Karen has joined the Trails with Tails Team as part of the Move with PADS fundraiser. She has set a goal to walk 13,000 steps per day – sometimes with me and sometimes without. I have also been continuing to work on my training.
