Finally, use the buttonLabel variable to set the text for loadPuppiesButton instead of the current hard-coded String.

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

You're mostly there! Instead of using a hard-coded String value (you have "loadPuppiesButton"), you want the String value that is currently stored in the buttonLabel variable. buttonLabel holds the text that you want to use on the button itself.
