December is a busy month for everyone and I found it quite exciting.

I had a visit with my friend Esme, attended the PADS Christmas party, visited with Santa and did a little Christmas shopping.

I found time to go hiking and even swimming at my favourite lake, Sasamat. It’s cold, but I don’t mind it.

I’m working on my loose leash walking and doing very well on that front. My dog distraction is getting better. I can go into the park and walk by dogs who are off leash and not be distracted.
