Sherbrooke Record - - THE BORDER REPORT - By Clea Cor­man

Tyler is a happy and friendly 8 month old pup who loves a good belly rub. Tyler is a great young dog who is well be­haved over­all but he some­times gets a lit­tle over ex­cited when out­doors for his walks and play­time. He is prob­a­bly a lit­tle bored. Tyler gets his daily walk, some one-on-one play­time in our dog park and he is out­doors in a large grassy pen most of the day but he is a puppy and he needs more at­ten­tion and ac­tiv­ity than we can pro­vide.

What Tyler re­quires is a mo­ti­vated adopter who is pre­pared to put in the time and ef­fort to give him the ex­er­cise, train­ing and men­tal stim­u­la­tion he needs. He was su­perbly be­haved dur­ing his re­cent photo shoot and clearly loved the ex­tra at­ten­tion he was get­ting.

Smart, en­gaged and ea­ger to please, with a con­sis­tent and com­mit­ted train­ing reg­i­men, Tyler will be on track in no

High school can be tough, es­pe­cially go­ing from a small ru­ral town to a large re­gional high school. Ev­ery­thing seems big, for­eign and un­known. For stu­dents in the Stanstead area, tak­ing a bus to Galt or La Ruche can take over an hour, one way. Imag­ine fin­ish­ing a long day of school at the age of 13, hav­ing to ride the bus for an hour and then start­ing home­work. For the first cou­ple of years at Phelps, we would re­mark on the ded­i­ca­tion of the small group that would faith­fully come to Phelps ev­ery week, know­ing full well that many were al­ready ex­hausted, both men­tally and phys­i­cally, by the time they walked through our doors. For those who did not at­tend, it must have time. He loves hang­ing out with peo­ple and he'll be much hap­pier in a home. If you are look­ing for an in­vested walk­ing or hik­ing part­ner Tyler is your guy. He also loves to play ball. Best of all, at the end of the day, he'll be equally happy to chill with you on the couch. The re­al­ity is, ev­ery dog ben­e­fits from train­ing and it's a great way to build a re­la­tion­ship and cre­ate a bond with your newly adopted dog. It's a win, win in our books.

Tyler is a good dog with a good heart, he just needs some­one to help guide him from pup­py­hood to be­com­ing a well rounded and ma­ture adult dog. Tyler is dog friendly and seems fine with cats.

We are pleased to say, at Phelps, that this fall has been in­cred­i­ble. We have par­tic­i­pa­tion num­bers like we have never seen be­fore: stu­dents are get­ting off the bus in droves, stomp­ing down the side­walk and com­ing in to Phelps smil­ing, ready to work. We used to peer out the win­dow, hop­ing for just a few kids to get off the bus; now, we do a dou­ble-take at the large groups com­ing to­wards Phelps. These stu­dents are be­ing brave and tak­ing charge of their own fu­tures, mak­ing those cru­cial first choices and de­cid­ing, whether they re­al­ize it or not, that do­ing your work and fin­ish­ing high school is im­por­tant.
