Have you heard of this? It's a scouting program for dogs and their owners. I didn't know such a thing existed! Would you participate in something like this?

"A growing movement in doing good with your dog, the Dog Scouts of America program, is now in 22 states, according to the AP. What started in 1995 as a non-profit aimed at enriching the lives of people and dogs, has become a highly sought out club, complete with merit badges (for the dogs), cookie sales (also for the dogs), and community service awards (for the people)."

I had not heard of that either! It sounds like a great program, although I don't know how many merit badges our girls would be able to acquire...I don't see them excelling in Water Rescue, lol!
