The puppies in Chippewa Correctional Facility were SO good...
How good were they?
They were so good that Santa Claus came early - and brought puppy gifts!
|FLD Nell needs a little coaxing by her raiser to slide "under" Santa's chair.|
But after Santa, there was still training to be done.
|FLD Bravo waits for the cue to "come."|
Practice recall. Add distractions.
|FLD Drummond gets his nails checked.|
|FLD Bravo has his nails checked too!|
Perform the "handler's exam." Check puppy paws and nails. Look in ears and smell them. Lift lips and check teeth. Eyes clear? Body weight lean?
Then puppy counselor Tammy gave the inmate raisers a task they couldn't resist:
HUG YOUR PUPPY!
|FLD Zella gets a big hug!|
|FLD Sammy seems like he is hugging back!|
And after all of that, the puppies are sprung on furlough to attend a Pickford High School basketball game!
