October is my favorite month. Why do you ask? Well, it’s my birthday month, and I turned one year old. I even went to a birthday party for all of my brothers & sisters in the Avengers litter. It was a lot of fun. It was so nice to see them again & play. We even had our own birthday cake. Yum, yum.

Still doing a lot more training. I’m learning “Heal,” which is where I come to the left side of my human and “Side,” which is the right side. I am trying to learn more about getting on & off elevators properly too. Some people are always in such a rush they don’t want to wait for me. That’s ok; I’m patient.

This month was not very nice in the beginning, so I still got to do many things. I even went one last time on the paddleboard. Went to the beach a couple of times and walked around in the water.

Went to a Pumpkin Patch that had so many other things there. There were so many pumpkins, other dogs, lots of kids & farm animals. I even kissed a potbelly pig. I met some swans who were really mean, but I watched them from a distance.

I dressed up in a Halloween costume & went to one of my classes. That was a fun class. I went as a hotdog with spiders on it. Then on Halloween, there were so many kids coming to the door. I was so good and stayed in my bed. Even the fireworks did not bother me. My human took me out for a walk, and I saw all these kids dressed up & saw some fireworks too. What a fun & busy month this was.
