Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope Santa Paws was good to you all!

December was a pretty busy month for me. I spent a week with a puppy sitter and I was even lucky enough to be present at the name reveal of one of our newest Okanagan recruits. My raisers and I did a lot of shopping this month so I got to work on sharpening my skills around some very busy stores. We saw 5 other service dogs from all different organizations during one outing (I’m pleased to say that I managed to keep myself together fairly well, even though I really wanted to say hello).

Our house went through a rather dramatic transformation this month, a bunch of sparkly things appeared all over the place and a real live tree grew out of the living room floor. There was also a lot of delicious smelling food that kept appearing (unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to sample any but the humans all said it was good). I got several new toys from Santa Paws and my “cousin” came over to play with me a few times. However the best part for me was we finally got a decent amount of snow to play in.

Well that’s about it for me, I can’t wait to find out where I’ll be this time next year…

Happy 2019!
