July was a very warm month and I am trying to get used to the heat. I do enjoy an occasional dip in the water, but still not really comfortable with not having all 4s on solid ground.

My mates have been trying to teach me the CHIN command, but I am not liking it one bit. There is a bump on the bridge of my nose that they keep trying to touch so now when they say CHIN, I back away and run from them. I don’t think it hurts, but I don’t really like them touching me there (the bump – check it out on the photo). Other than that, I am loving my social time with my dog friends, chasing and being chased, lots of running in the nice summer day.
