What a month!!! This was my first month with my puppy raiser, and what a whirlwind it’s been since leaving my litter mates.

I spent the first half of the month having some sitter adventures as my puppy raiser was finishing up with a different litter of PADS pups. I was able to touch a bit on city life and got to go on some small adventures.

Then it was time to head to the mountains to join my puppy raiser. This place is so much fun. I have a couple of puppy mentors that are my housemates, and they welcomed me right in and have been showing me the ropes as I figure out this new big world. Apparently, a big part of being a baby is sleep so that I can let what I learn sink in and also to help me grow big and strong, so there’s been a whole lot of sleep this month. Don’t let that fool you, though; I’ve already learned so much and been on many fun adventures.
