Dear K-9 Companions,

Knowing that my 21 year old daughter and her husband decided to serve in an orphanage and Christian School in Port au Prince , Haiti their first few years of marriage caused my wife and I a bit of concern given the kidnappings and other violence that occurs in such an impoverished nation. While ultimately, we place our faith in Christ, we definitely feel better that Atticus is there to guard Brittany , Rod and the home.

Atticus has adjusted well to the heat and his patrol duties. All though he is just under a year old, he has definitely found his bark and always patrols the property keeping an eye out for our daughter and the pre-school orphans that she tutors. He has a great disposition as both the younger and the older orphans love to play ball with him.

Thanks also for the 3 weeks of puppy Boot Camp™. It made a huge difference in his obedience. Hopefully he can come back to K-9 for more advanced training.
