Duchess is maturing into such a sweet, cuddly puppy. At 5 months old, she is starting to figure out how to behave well in the world. Through this, she is showing that she is ready to say hi to students at school without getting too excited — she remains in a sit, but boy oh boy, does that tail still wag at a mile a minute. She is pretty adorable, and we love having her around. From waking up with an abundance of energy, zooming around the garden with a stuffy in her mouth, to laying in your lap the moment you sit down at night, this girl keeps every moment unique and special. We continue to work on separation and attention-seeking, but she has already grown astronomically in that. 

This month, she also got to hang out with many PADS dogs, including PADS Hebron, PADS Bruni, PADS Dennis, and PADS AFD Summer.
