A month of learning and building on skills (found my hind end — yes, that’s a skill), and some new experiences and changes in routine.

Enjoyed the extended sunny weather to play on the beach and go for a few kayak rides. Also, went to a new, noisy restaurant where I was able to settle well during the entire meal. Mid-month was the last day for the regular routine of going full-time to the workplace with my raiser or riding shotgun on the work van (she retired early)…so a few parties, pictures and some long cuddles.

Also, had a 10-day stay with a wonderful sitter who took me on some amazing experiences including travelling on the ferry, visiting Vancouver Island, a Halloween party PADS class, and runs in the forest — among many other adventures. Pup-in-Training life is good!
