The hard-coded String is "LOAD"... it needs to be changed. :)

I didn't know this challenge myself but a simple google search of "use variable to setText for another variable" helped me find the answer in a stackOverflow post. You should also try it, you get a pretty good feeling when you solve the problem. Anyway the code below should work. :)

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