September was another busy month. I am growing bigger and bigger!! Mom and Dad went on vacation for a couple of weeks and I got to stay with the Hero Dogs family. This really gave me the chance to play with the big Hero Dogs. I can really rough house with them!
I went to the dentist with Mom and Dad this month. There were all kinds of new sounds and smells there! I was on my best behavior and they really liked me and told me to come back any time. They took my picture so they can keep track of me and see how fast I grow!
I have been working on my confidence around large trucks and school buses. I am getting more used to them now. You know, those buses have kids inside of them! They may not be so bad after all!
I also went to the Modern Day Marine Expo at Quantico. I loved meeting tons of people, and I tried my very best to do my commands really well to spread the word about the Hero Dogs program so we can help more veterans!!!
My Auntie Linda is here to visit for three weeks! She came all the way from Oregon to see me! I don’t know where Oregon is but it sounds really far away. Many Hero Dog puppy sitters are taking turns helping to take care of me while the family is off doing special events. I went to a swim practice and a neighborhood dinner. Party time! I am getting to meet new families and their pets and I am having lots of fun!
October looks to be another busy month! I’m looking forward to every new adventure and to learning so many new things. I want to grow up to be just like those big Hero Dogs!
