The first half of the month was the usual daily routine accompanying the raiser to work, learning to settle among all the activities in the long-term care facility—and then weekend meet-ups with other PADS pups to practice skills which are developing nicely. In the second half of the month, the raisers went away on vacation, so off to the sitters — which offered many wonderful experiences, including learning to adapt to new surroundings with amazing people. These new experiences are helping to build confidence and share my sweetness with others.
