Hi! It’s me Empress. I was born on February 22nd. I moved in with my raisers on April 26th at exactly 9 weeks old. I am still adjusting to living with my raisers in Kitsilano. I occasionally sing the song of my people when I’m in my kennel but not too long because there is always something to snuggle with in there and a lot of times treats come in from the holes. Magic.

Kitsilano is a nice neighbourhood and there are plenty of people, dogs, and lessons to be learned. Some of the things that I enjoyed doing in the first week with my raisers…
I took the bus for the first time. I went to my first puppy kindergarten class. I went food shopping a few times but there was nothing for me in the cart. Boo. I went to Granville Island and quietly watched the seagulls and pigeons dive-bomb the tourists. And, you guys, I went to the airport. It was busy and there were lots of hoomans pulling wheelie monsters on leashes.

Okay, that’s me, Empress, signing off. If you can’t wait until next month to see me then be sure and check out my Instagram @padsempress.
