Silky here. This month, I have spent lots of time practising my care skills such as getting comfortable having my nails clipped and brushing my teeth.

We had a very cold spell here in Calgary this month, so there was lots of time for relaxing at home, getting cuddles, and getting cozy in front of the log fire. My cat siblings also like the spot in front of the fire, so I had to share with them!

One of the hardest things for me to learn has been to not be distracted by other dogs, so my human was excited to see me lying down and completely ignoring all the dogs around me at one of our puppy classes this month. That’s me in the photo—doing a great ‘duration down.’ You can’t see the other pups, but there were lots of them, all around me!
