Elara Feb 2016 march 1This month flew by!  We got to go to Bass Pro Shop in Balzac and check out all the cool smells and the waterfall. I’ve also been out to the farm playing with the sheep and helping them be bottle fed. I grew lots and lots this month, right out of my small vest, my kennel, and soon I’ll need a new puppy woof woof bed! I’m doing much better with recall, but I still get distracted with food on the floor and love to enthusiastically greet people with my feet (which they don’t seem to like, so we’re working on that too!). I am also the center of attention in lots of the university classes I go to, and even got to give a demonstration to the class of all my puppy tricks!! My valentine this month was my puppy friend Mars, who I got to stay with in the end of January. I’m looking forward to March and Elara Feb 2016 march 2hopefully lots of runs in the off-leash park!
