Kennel Essay Contest…What has Reynolds Kennels Taught Me?

Every year Reynolds Kennels has an end of summer campfire night.

Just some good ole’ campfire fun

We have so many teenagers that work for us that it is important to have a fun night of marshmallows and chocolate.

Our employees are friends with each other too.

Derek and I love to watch them jump on our trampoline, chat about going back to school… just being kids.

As a  “get ready for school” activity, we ask all the kids to take a few minutes to write an essay based on a topic we give them.

We offer some cash prizes to the top 3 entries…and frankly, it can be very entertaining.

In years past, the topics have been subjects like…

“How Poop and Slobber has changed my life” and “When I look through a dogs eyes I see…”

Those are a couple of examples.

This years our topic was….”Since working at Reynolds, the most important lesson I’ve learned is…”

Here is our first place winner this year, Ryan Elder.

(Sorry it is a bit dark…it is night time)

We love how creative these kids can be. We love to hear the many angles that this working experience shows them about life. We appreciate that they can see beyond just the kennel tasks to see that they are learning skills they will use beyond their time with us.

Great Job Ryan!…and everyone else who participated.

Derek and I enjoyed our bonfire night and maybe…just maybe…. they are ready to get back in school…not!
