Summer break is the best! With both of us as teachers, our training routine is typically confined to the everyday bits and bobs, like school. During July, we took Nova on a variety of adventures. This included a trip to Kelowna, the movies, festivals, dog parks, big malls, the lake and outdoor plays/picnics. Her highlight was hanging out with PADS AFD Summer and PADS AFD Bruni at a summer barbecue. 

Nova is proving to be an incredibly motivated and intelligent young girl. Although very motivated by food, nothing beats a cuddle. If you sit on the floor, she is sure to come and plop herself in your lap. Not sure how much longer she will try to do this given that she is growing like a weed!
