Hi! My first Christmas was amazing. I loved playing outside in all the snow and seeing if I could find the leaves buried underneath.

Inside, I liked lying in front of the fireplace and looking at the lights on the Christmas tree, even if I wasn’t allowed to chew on them. I must have been very good because Santa brought me two new toys in my stocking. I liked them much better than the sparkly Christmas tree headband.

We went to Lafarge Lake and boy, were there a lot of lights and people! We walked for a while, but it was a bit too much for me to handle. I also went to Burnaby Village Museum. This was a much better experience for me; I checked out a couple of the old buildings, and I even met another PADS puppy, Sidney.

I’ve been working really hard at my skills: I’m good at sitting, standing and the release commands, but I’m still working on down. I’m very snuggly and love a good belly rub.

My New Year’s resolution is to keep working hard!
