Pia continues to walk confidently on her lead. She has also been to the ballet, which she enjoyed very much. But there’s nothing she likes more than playing with her family.

If there’s water around, Rita will find it – she just loves to swim! She’s also been busy visiting cafes and restaurants and is now very good at going to the supermarket.
Rita also loves to meet new people, which she got to do at two recent guide dog fundraisers. They loved you too, Rita!
