December was a fun month for me. I graduated from puppy kindergarten to beginner training! I’m starting to learn that doing stuff isn’t only a matter of following the treat or my raiser’s hand, but sometimes she uses her words to ask me to do something. For example, I’m learning that “car” means I can hop up inside her car and we get to go places. “Perch” means putting my front paws onto something. I have a lot of fun learning new things like that!

Another awesome thing about December was that I got to spend time with someone special. My raiser went away for Christmas and I got to spend the holidays with my SPONSOR! How special is that? (Photo credit Bill Ng)
