Russet started off the month of December celebrating (along with PADS Service Dog Gucci) at my work Christmas party. He then had to lay low for 10 days while recovering from his neuter surgery. He did, however, look quite fetching in his medical recovery onesie. By Christmas, Russet was back to 100% and ripped his Christmas presents open like a pro. Finally, he went on a week-long vacation at the puppy-sitter with PADS Pixie while we went to the coast.

At puppy class, Russet continued working on his luring skills and offering behaviours. He enjoyed practicing these skills at home and at our local pet store.
