We love to hear from stories from our adopters! Each one of these beagles touches our lives in a special way - hearing the "Happy Tails" makes everything we do worthwhile! Below are just a few examples of some of our happy beagle tails!
Read all of the Happy Tails by paging through them below (stories are listed from newest to oldest) or click on a name to go to a specific article.
Do you have your own Happy Tail story about adopting a B.O.N.E.S. beagle that you'd like to share? Please send it, along with any pictures, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bob is GREAT! What a love, he just wants to be with us, and has attached himself to me. (Guess who feeds him everyday!) We've had a great summer together and have been taking classes at our local Pet Smart. He is doing beautifully, except for barking at one particular Husky, named Jackson, whom he does not seem to care much for! Fran and I were so surprised to see him react like this when he does not bark much at all. It is only in the store that he becomes a loud mouth beagle!
There are times when I think his name should have been Napolean - he has little big dog syndrome! He only barks at dogs bigger than him!! Buddy the cat is still only tolorating Bob; and Bob continues to want to play ball with Buddy. Oh Well! Andrew has taught him "paw" and Kevin has taught him to "drop it", the ball, most of the time. Bob has a difficult time listening to Kevin because he sees him as one of his pack, not in charge.
We started back to school last week and Bob does not seem to mind being in the crate. I still feel guilty. He walks a mile with me at 5:30 am, with the boys after school at 2:30 pm, and again after dinner when, if time allows, we do 2 miles. I have had to cut back on my 5 miles due to an injury to my heel. Hopefully it will heal fast because I miss our long walks around the bogs.
We almost had a crisis on our hands when the blue ball that Susan gave him went missing. Bob was mopey for a few days until I found it under the basement stairs. I went on line a ordered 2 more as back-up to avert anymore trauma. He has taken to sleeping at the foot of one of the boy's beds, and first thing in the morning jumps up on my bed, when Fran gets up, to say good morning and to get his belly rubbed. I have attached some old pictures before my digital camera bit the dust. More to follow after I get them developed.
Thank you again, Kim, Fran, Andrew, Kevin, Buddy and Bob
