From the time I saw Billy Beagle on the BREW website, I knew that he was "my" dog. My mother was concerned because he was older (between 8-10) and had some medicial issues - he had been in foster care a LONG time because of this - but I knew that he was my dog from the moment I saw him. On March 31, 2002, I took the day off work to drive the 3 hours to see Billy, and right then, I knew it was right. I took Billy home that day, and that is when our lives together began.
Billy lived the last 3 years, 7 months and 15 days of his life in relative spoiledness. He had multiple beds - one for all the different seasons - a large wardrobe of bandannas for all occasions, and "grandma" who constantly fed him table food. Never the most energetic of beagles, Billy was content to snooze in his bed most of the time and go on the occasional walk or ride in the car. Still, when he got goofy, he got REALLY goofy, giving us a good laugh. And he greeted me at the door every night with his eyes happy to see me - missing that is proving to be the most difficult now.
Billy was my first beagle and is the reason I am involved in the rescue now. I know that the day will come that Billy will send me another beagle to love and for right now, I am happy to be involved in the rescue of so many of his beagle friends.
