Have you seen my raisers? They are here one day, and gone the next! I’m having a hard time keeping track of them! However, thankfully,
Hero Dogs has an amazing network of puppy sitters who step in and let me hangout while they are off doing fun things.
Since my raisers have been so busy planning trips and something called a wedding that they discuss non-stop, Its been awhile since they’ve passed along my updates. Since we’ve talked last, I participated in my first quarterly puppy swap! I got to hang out with Hero Dogs Ashley’s raisers on a four acre farm! And Skye, another golden retriever! He was a bit weary, but I won him over eventually with all my puppy kisses. I got to run around so much! Plus, we took walks to the pond to watch the buzzards. I’d say farm life agreed with me, but in fairness, Ashley’s raisers started giving me bottled water because the well water upset my stomach. Talk about the royal treatment – M&J take notes!
I also spent some time with Becca P. who raised Hero Dogs Clara and Hero Dogs Ruby. You might have been surprised to see my face popping up on their social media. I had a great time with her. I got to play with all sorts of new dog toys, plus go on new adventures! She took me to the movies! And to Giant, Petsmart, Sams Club, Target, Chipotle, the list goes on! Then I spent a couple days in the kennel and with Jennifer. It made me miss the days I used to go to work with Kiernan at Hero Dogs before puppy class. I love other pups and am always down for a puppy play date.
I’ve been venturing farther afield with my puppy raisers, and am getting to be a pro at the metro, sitting patiently under the seat or bus. I got to go to a doctor’s appointment, a dentist appointment (that was weird – apparently I too will go to the dentist within the year), and even to cheer them on at volleyball. Well actually, they weren’t too pleased when I tried to tell them what a good job they were doing, but they must have appreciated it because I got a puzzle toy that I worked on for the rest of the game. Hopefully I can come stay with YOU next!
