Happy Birthday Faye---Oh What A Year It's Been!

Today we are celebrating Lafayette (Fayes) first Birthday!!    I am always surprised how quickly the first year goes by.  Those first few weeks with a new puppy are so busy and tiring, there is never a dull moment.  But in the blink of an eye our sweet little Faye is turning 1 year old.  It has been a fun filled year living with Faye, she's got it all, beauty, brains and personality. 

Faye began training at 9 weeks old by attending my group classes with the help of our good friend Judy who worked as her handler so I could teach the rest of my students :)   My hardworking Assistants Joy and Jacob were always there to lend a hand too.

Along with training, Faye has made many friends along the way both human and canine.  She works hard but I make sure she plays hard too.  Whether it meant standing in the freezing cold , wading in a lake or logging hundreds of miles on walks, Faye has had no shortage of outdoor fun. 

As a Therapy Dog In Training we are always working and training in the community, lots of outings, visiting the Hospital, local stores, schools, parades, the list is endless.  As I have watched Faye grow and mature this past year I'm so excited to see her well on her way to becoming a Therapy Dog.   Again, many thanks to our good friend Judy for helping us train, we couldn't have done it without her.

Even though Faye loves to have fun, her favorite activity is hanging with Leo and she does it very well. 

We look forward to spending many more wonderful years with Faye, Happy Birthday Fayby!!
