A welcomed hello from a former Snack Pack Pup, one Popcorn turned Bonney Boodle.  New mom and dad, Jeannette and Graeme Currie are thrilled with her progress, including a stellar performance at her first puppy class!

Pictured below is former NCBCRA foster Hugo, now known as Buster (on right), along with pack mate Sam, sharing a scratch behind the ears from dad Brad (mom Mary Jo snapping pics?). Dad reports Buster and Sam are best of buds. Thank you Coopers for providing Buster a great home!

Young Isabelle showed herself to be a top notch dog handler when she met Dixie, no wonder Dixie looks up to her! Dixie tends to be a little timid, but Isabelle put her at ease by walking her about the yard and speaking softly to her. Really not much talking was needed between the two, they just seem to go together like peas and carrots.
