Why isn't my code working?

I am supposed to retrieve the String from the strings XML file.

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

I am doing everything I am supposed to do but I get a message saying, "Bummer! Don't forget to call getString() to get the string value from strings.xml!"

On your .setText try passing in 'buttonLabel' instead of "LOAD"
