Pupdate: December was my first month with my raisers. I am learning lots of basics quickly and going to see lots of new places with them.
One of the first things we did was go to the Harlem Globetrotters event at Prospera Place in Kelowna. There were lots of people and lots of stairs to do! I got to sit back and watch the whole event and it was so exciting! I did great and I was only 9 weeks old.

I have been to restaurants, coffee shops and did quite a bit of Christmas shopping. I met a ton of people and it was pretty tiring but I learned to sit patiently while people pet me and asked my mom and dad lots of questions about PADS. 
I went on my first little hike and I know I love going for walks and discovering new places. One of the most important things I am working on is being respectful to my raisers, learning they don’t like it when I bite and bark. I am quickly learning what behavior makes them happy and gets me my treats and rewards.
Hugo, a PADS release dog that used to live here is staying with us for 10 days and he is teaching me things like how to play nicely, sharing toys, not eating his food and having to be patient when I want attention. He is like my big brother and we are having so much fun!
