Good News From Camper Pup
Ronnie and Petey snoozing.
The only really hard thing about our Caring Kids Dog Training 101 -- Tricks, Treats & Tips Camp was saying good-bye to the pups. The eight campers not only taught the four pups to sits, lie down, stand and a couple of tricks, they bathed them, cleaned up their soiled areas and loved them like they were their own. One of the pups was adopted by the pair of brothers who trained her. Their good-bye, was more like "See you in a couple of days." But the other three pups were adopted into new homes the weekend after camp ended, leaving the six remaining campers wondering about their pup's post-camp life.
It looks like all is well. Our campers received the following update --
Pickle is doing great! Her new name is Rhonda Pickle but we call her Ronnie for short, sometimes just Ron :) Ronnie has a brother named Petey that she loves to play and wrestle around with. Ronnie is growing everyday and can now jump up on the couch and the bed. She loves long walks and just started having fun at the dog park. Ronnie loves to snuggle up on the couch. Her favorite thing to do is chew on her bully bones. You kids did a great job teaching Pickle how to sit and to use the pee pee pads....Ronnie Pickle is almost potty trained. She is such a sweet dog and we love her so much. I have attached some pictures of her for you to enjoy. Thanks for taking such great care of her. She loved her time at the Rescue League.
