I had a lot of fun learning a new cue this month, “bed.” I am used to using the cue “settle,” so it was a bit of a challenge at first, but of course I picked it up in just a few tries. Now, I will travel from far away and lay on my bed when I hear the cue.

I felt more interested than usual in other dogs this month. In the past I have very often made eye contact with Nigel when another dog approached and would then just continue walking at the same pace. But quite often this month, I slowed down and turned to look at the other dog after it passed. I will work on that some more.
