August was a busy month! A couple of camping trips, lots of swimming, went to doctor/massage/dentist/blood donation appointments where Maya is always a star. The best part of the month was the PADS field trip to the PNE as well as celebrating her first birthday! A special meal for the whole fur-family – at first the dogs wouldn’t eat the delicious wet food as I think they were certain that it must be a trick – such a savoury treat couldn’t possibly be for them but a couple of ‘release’ commands later the plates were licked clean. Little Maya was also spayed this month and was rather unhappy about the whole thing the first evening home but recovered well and is back to training full tilt.
