December was another month of firsts for me. I met PADS Misha, who is at PADS university! He’s a very smart dog and wasn’t interested in my silly puppy shenanigans.

I also met PADS service dog Zaria at Lions Gate Hospital. Then I met my brother, PADS Radar, who I haven’t seen since we were 8 weeks old.

I went on a couple of big hikes with Liz because I’m a big strong teenager now. I celebrated my first-ever Christmas with all the McLean family, and it was the first year in 5 since Liz and Neil had all their kids home for Christmas and boy, did I ever get spoiled.
