MIT-BLUE joined the Team Burnaby Advanced Training string this month and has settled into the kennel nicely. She is making friends with the other dogs in the kennel and has enjoyed rooming with Lotus. Mit-Blue is the life of the party. She is always on board for a bit of playtime, especially with her best play buddy, Haiku. Mit-Blue is working on engagement with novel handlers and eye contact in response to her name being called. We are excited to spend more time getting to know this peppy and are looking forward to seeing where training takes her! Thank you to Team Mit-Blue for all the love and hard work you have put into raising her; you should be very proud of her!
