Maggie Goes to School
Maggie's ready for her first day of school!

Maggie went to puppy school on Monday - She was so cute! She was clearly out-numbered by the bigger puppies but she was such a trooper! She wasn’t quite sure what to think right away but soon as she got over her shyness she was playing with the “big guys”.

Maggie’s first 24 hours were filled with lots of hugs, kisses, exploring, naps, potty training, and playing! She was a little timid at first and cautiously explored her surroundings. Within an hour she ate, drank, and of course had her first (of many) accidents! ...

Now is a great time to take your dog to the beach. Please remember that the sand can be extremely hot, and it can easily burn the pads on your dog’s feet.
