This month was busy with Christmas! I was really good with the Christmas tree. I checked it out a few times but my raiser told me to leave it and after a few times I did just leave it. There were lots of trips to the shopping malls this month and to a hockey tournament. I did really well at all of them! On Christmas Day when we were at our family’s house for dinner there were fireworks outside! I was a little nervous and whined a little bit but sat beside my raiser and it was OK. We are still working on my “leave it” when we are out for walks, my loose leash walking, and my heels and sides. Sometimes it’s hard to be really focused when there is all the snow on the ground and so many things to smell.
