May is Mental Health Awareness Month so I attended a de-stress event at Coastal Health with PADS dogs, Esme, Pumpkin, Dervish and Gilby.  I was well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed greeting people and making them smile.

For the May long weekend, I went wine tasting in Penticton!  So much fun, with lots of nice restaurants, scenery and a bustling Saturday market where I found a food truck for dogs.  How great is that?  Because I was in my cape, the nice lady gave me extra cookies (the fancy kind with dog-friendly icing).

 I am working on my “here” command, acing my “wait command” and still struggling with the “mine.”  In my world, everything is still mine!
