Doggone It! Dog Series
*note - we are going to go out and verify this box this week- will update shortly if clues still fit and box is still there. thanks! *
This box is the second in a series called “Doggone It!” The purpose of these “Doggone It” boxes is to provide letter boxers who bring their dogs letterboxing quests that are dog-friendly, i.e.: dogs are allowed on the trail.
The Callisto box is created in honor of Callisto (Callie), Dan and Rachel’s yellow lab. We adopted Callie from the Portage County Humane Society, which was housed right next door to Bukolt Park. Before we decided to adopt her, we took her for a walk in Bukolt and that is where we realized we were meant to adopt her.
