This month it became so cold and wet. Turns out that I love a good puddle, but am not so sure about the rain… .

My raisers are all big readers which means two things: 1. Lots of books that I’m not allowed to touch and 2. loads of trips to the local library. The librarians all love seeing me and have been totally supportive of my training. I struggle with settling staying quiet, but thankfully the library has become a great place to practice.

I had a visit with my papa Cleat and sponsor Jane. Jane gave my raisers so many tips and tricks for dealing with me because I’m now a big boy. I also got to have the best play ever with my dad. He is an 80lb lab, and I might be following in his footsteps as I’m 67 lbs at 8 months.

I am now incredibly cuddly. I started my life as a very nippy puppy, and since growing all my big boy teeth I’ve become a cuddle bug. I love snuggling on my raisers laps while they sit on the floor. I’ve had the opportunity to hang out with a variety of sitters this month all of which were so fun and kind. Life is good and I’m ready to finally see what the raisers call snow.
