Holiday festivities: Handel’s Messiah at The Orpheum; family (eight of us) dinner at the Jericho Tennis Club (with Dune); family dinner (12 of us) with snacks out on low table, (and Dune was NOT interested); Goh Nutcracker at the QE (photos); Bridges restaurant + Miss Bennet at The Granville Stage; grandson’s hockey game; good progress with sit (to 7 minutes) and stand (to six minutes); usual daily walks in nearby Pacific Spirit Park; this morning after playing with a dog, walking away, Dune chose to turn around and run after dog BUT responded quickly to a loud and purposeful, “HERE!” New behaviour: “Bow” (photo) (just like Bessie bows!). Plan to take public transport downtown and visit Art Gallery (+ lunch there) in coming week.
