So adorable and so scared of all things in a house since he has never been in a house before, the TV and other household sounds have taken him by surprise. I am socializing him by taking him to places and letting him see the world. It is a lot of fun also to see how smart these little guys are.
I am going to do paint pictures with him to raise the funds for him to go to the $70 - $100 obedience class at Petsmart. I am sure I can get $20 of it from my husband and then I can put in $20. I am going to have my animals paint pictures. One way is to have them hold a paintbrush with my help, and paint on a piece of paper. Then when it dries, I will put a picture of the artist and frame it in an inexpensive frame.
This way the animals can all pitch in to help with fundraising for the little puppy to get educated. I am very picky who will get this wonderful young man, and I will require a phone interview and two or three house visits, and a phone number of any landlord, etc.
Just wanted to let you all know how proud I am of this little guy and my plans of raising his scholarship funds!

Great story, and a really neat idea for raising money to go towards his training. Reminds me of something my 3 daughters did when they were 6, 8 and 11 years old. They had our Tuxedo Bootsie male kitty "paint" a picture
for my birthday one year. It was just straight lines on the inside of my birthday card...not much of a picture until I asked the youngest what was the name of Bootsie's painting...She promptly replied, "Fiddle Sticks Mom, Fiddle Sticks. Can't you tell?"
Anytime now when a family member asked a "dumb question", someone is bound to say, "Fiddle Sticks. Can't you tell?" We just might have our Sir Catty Kit paint a picture now that you've brought back a nice memory.
Thanks for sharing, and Elrod is a lucky fellow. Good Luck with your plan. Sending a picture of Sir Catty Kit who was 5 years old on Feb 14 this year... Our Darling! Julia in Boca Raton, FL
It is wonderful that you are helping this precious dog. I had a pitbull for 14 years. She was a wonderful dog and a great ambassador for this breed. I am now fostering a boxer who is an older dog who lost his home when his family lost their house. I love your creative idea to raise money for Elrod's obdedience training. I know you are giving him a great opportunity for a wonderful life.
