MUDGE has spent February dodging Cupid and working on her default behaviors around food. She has been maintaining her public access manners in community centers, elementary schools, and the mall in preparation for pre-placement testing. Mudge spent time at the Pet Lovers Expo as an ambassador for PADS and enjoyed meeting all the new people and greeting old friends. She was a great mentor and provided a great example for PADS-pups-in-training Jersey III, Gaia, and Nori as they practiced their dog distraction and house manners.
