The spirit of Thanksgiving is always a good time to reflect on gratitude and what we are thankful for:  family, friends, puppy playdates, the incredible PADS community and PADS sitter network, our tireless PADS dog trainers that we meet virtually with on a weekly basis, spending time outdoors in beautiful BC, a warm and enthusiastic dog-in-training companion always up to anything we ask, and some solid cuddles anytime of the day.

October allowed for some puppy adventures, with a move to North Vancouver (thanks to all the PADS Puppy Sitters for support to help make that happen with ease), a trip to Nanaimo on the ferry and an in-person training class with PADS trainer Dana at Ikea…. all properly physical distanced of course!  With so much change, Lore proved he can handle all kinds of stresses thrown his way and provide much needed stress relief to the humans that need his emotional support!
