I’ve had another very busy month with my raisers. My mom is very focused on getting me to walk nicely and behave more calmly when around other dogs or seeing birds like crows on the ground. I’ve continued to grow and get very strong, so I know I can be quite a “handful” sometimes!

My dad tends to take me more on “nature walks” in the country when he goes birding; I like laying in the fall leaves. He also likes to take me to the library! I’ve recently learned how to jump in and out of our truck; I’m now also OK climbing open stairs like in parks…I used to be a bit afraid of those. My folks were quite concerned at how Hallowe’en and especially those crazy fireworks might bother me, but they say I did very well at dealing with them.
