This month – Valentine attended lots of events and was able to spend time with her favourite sitters while her raiser had a busy travel and work schedule. Valentine was assigned to greet the guests at the PADS Gala and took on this responsibility with great enthusiasm and discipline. She also attended the BC Tech Summit with her work family and was able to meet the Premier.

In class, we worked hard on door protocol and the “stand” cue – which is a harder cue for Valentine at this time – but we’re close! At the end of the month, Valentine entered her first heat cycle and has been staying with a sitter until she has public access again – she is greatly missed by her office family and me (her raiser)!
