Honestly, just about everything has been interesting and/or fun for Phie. I suppose her play date with Monet a week ago was a big highlight. Both Phie and Monet seem to have similar personalities (alpha) and although I initially found it quite alarming, both Meredith and Henrik assured me that it was a highly successful play date!

Training-wise, we are working on all the basics (loose-leash walking, potty training, sit, puppy puppy recall, etc.). She does really well in low-distraction environments, but really poorly in high-distraction environments. It’s all new for both of us (I’m a first-time raiser), so we’re just doing the best we can.
