Guess what, friends? December was my birthday month!! I turned one and celebrated with a tasty cake and some new toys. This year has flown by, and I look forward to the coming year.

In other news, hooman finished another semester of school. We spent most of the time on local trails and outside as we are still under POH’s. It was pretty fun. I found new places to have a good sniff, places to have a good zoomie session, and the cherry on top: new mud puddles! I still accompany the hooman to work to practice some of my skills in a public space. My training continues online. I am addressing some key areas such as walking nicely constantly, training, becoming a zen master in the kennel and having my meals on the go in the car.
