happy friday + juno’s graduation





Juno graduated from obedience training a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be more proud. On the last day, the trainer evaluated Juno’s understanding of various commands and his temperament–he nearly received a perfect score! Maybe I am bias, but I think Juno was the brightest pup in class;) Can you tell he’s serious about learning?

Here’s all the commands Juno knows so far…
