While January is the time of year people try to get in shape and lose weight, I actually gained about 17 pounds since December. (I weighed in at 32 pounds at my last vet visit). I have been working out with my sister, Cranberry, at Bert Flynn Park on weekends. I’m also now walking longer distances with my puppy raisers. One of my favourite walks is to the beach near my house in Port Moody. Some of the highlights this month: encountering snow for the first time, visiting two new breweries and going to a puppysitter. I thoroughly enjoyed my day at the United Way with Cindy. She even had a bed for me and new toys! So exciting. I have been so busy this month I haven’t even had a chance to watch Animal Planet. I’ll need a Netflix binge in February.
