This was Kayleigh’s first visit to Emancipet. She was really excited about how affordable it was going to be to keep Ralph healthy. She found Ralph when she heard about a family whose dog had had puppies and they couldn’t keep them.
Since Ralph is Kayleigh’s only (and first) dog, she says he is very spoiled.
He also knows how to get out of being scolded — when he gets into trouble for doing “puppy things” (like piddling on the floor), he immediately rolls over and gives her a beseeching look until she tells him he can get up (she didn’t teach him this).
