Please return to Ascot Staffing's website, as we will update pictures and progress notes on our very own CCI puppy, Ascot.
Here is Ascot on his first day at CCI. The green you see on his ear is from the identification process, but it will disappear with his first bath. Just like a boy, getting all messy on his first day at school!
Ascot's not a puppy anymore....here are some updated pictures of our favorite CCI dog! Ascot works hard, but makes time for fun as well!
