After one night, smiles grew. One inmate cut his hair. This was the time for stories, questions and last minute advice before Deb and Tammy sprung FLDs Jedi and Harper and we headed south.
KEEPING THE PEACE
FLD Bear's team said that the black lab slept quietly all night. FLD Axel did not.
"He was up every two hours," one of Axel's handlers said. The vocal pup wouldn't settle down; other inmates were riled and wanted him to SHUT THE PUPPY UP. "So I got into the crate with him," he said. Axel's lead raiser added, "So we just shut the door on him."
RUM Steve piped up, "Who said our crates were too small?"
Last November, when Deb and Tammy and I toured the Baraga facility, Steve showed us a prototype crate that was constructed and installed in one of the living "pods." FLD Harper tried it out for size. We thought it might need to be a little bigger, especially if they raised a German Shepherd.
It appears we were wrong.
