Clementine had her first round of lessons at puppy charm school and she did great! She is now learning to sit on command (more or less). Also, she is learning to stop barking at other dogs.
Dog treats are so motivating for her. Her favorite treats are pieces of Mili's food.
Five more weeks of obedience training left to go then she can move to the intermediate class.

We got up early today to rush to school to set up for the Winter Festival held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. It was a fantastic event but with most people in shorts and tank tops, it didn't feel very wintery.
After we cleaned up and got most things back in their rightful places, Julia and I came home for a short rest before heading out to the local Christmas parade.
It was Julia's first time ever seeing a parade and she was thrilled with it. Even when the rain started pouring down, her enthusiasm never abated.
Julia went home with a friend and the man was working -- so I worked late helping to set up stuff for the Winter Festival on Saturday. When I finally got home, I cleaned the house, did laundry, and wrapped gifts.
We are getting excited about watching her open those gifts! But we can't put them under the tree. Clementine is in a chewing up everything phase.

The girl has been so excited about celebrating Hanukkah this year. We make merry for Christmas, too, so she is loving all the celebratory events.
In her mind now, you light candles and that prepares you for a gift. She has been excited about all the little gifts she has gotten since Thanksgiving (the start of Hanukkah).
Tonight, she got the movie Matilda from my oldest step-daughter. She jumped up and down with excitement and then we watched it while we ate dinner. We don't usually watch movies while we eat but it just seemed right to make an exception tonight.
