Can't get passed Task 2 of this challenge.

I did like in the video but still not working. What did I miss?

CodeChallenge.java
Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
Resources resources = getResources();
String buttonLabel = resources.getString(R.string.morePuppies);
loadPuppiesButton.setText(buttonLabel);
strings.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
  <string name="morePuppies">See More Puppies</string>
</resources>

Hi, you don't need to get the resource. You just need to use the getString method from the Context class...

Button loadPuppiesButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.puppiesButton);
String buttonLabel = getString(R.string.morePuppies);
loadPuppiesButton.setText("LOAD");
