It was a busy November for MUDGE! Mudge spent time at the Vancouver Police Department, working with a new-to-her handler, and she squeezed in a bit of networking with PADS AFD Lucca. She had a sleepover with Training Manager Margaret and ran through a practice public access test. She got a head start on her holiday shopping at the Abbotsford Christmas Market and spent time relaxing in a cabin in Ucluelet. Mudge had a working spot in a canine fitness seminar, where she was complimented on her excellent physique and body awareness. Her time with SuperDogs definitely paid off!
