My raiser has had me out in public lots this month…something to do with Christmas shopping. I’m doing my best to ignore people in the stores, but I wish they’d try harder to ignore me and help me out.

I’m getting better at walking next to the shopping carts, even when they’re noisy in the parking lots. My raiser says that my listening ears aren’t working as well with my recall lately, especially when I’m having fun playing with a visiting puppy, so I’m working hard on that.

Sometimes visiting puppies get to jump up on furniture, but you can see in the picture that I know I’m not allowed to and am happy to be on my dog bed, especially when I get to cuddle with my bestie Amber (released PADS pup).
