Barney boy & Snoopy Girl
Connie I often visit your website because I love to look at the beautiful pictures.
I noticed that you had a new section called wallpapers. Of course I had to check
that out. What a delightful surprise to see Candy's (formerly known as April)
picture. Needless to say, her pretty face is now on my desktop. Please thank
Patty Carson for me. It is because of her pictures that I came to Beagles and
have had Candy three months now, and she is delightful. She is housebroken and
walks perfectly on her leash. She took a while to trust my husband. I think
she had some bad memories about men. But, with gentle, patient love Steve has
won her over. She now adores him too. My granddaughter, Amy, also loves Candy.
I told Amy she could give April a new name if she wanted to. She chose to name
her Candy, because she is such a sweet dog. Candy and Jake (her cockapoo big
brother) are the best of friends. Candy loves to get Jake to run and play. They
have the most fun playing chase. Her little legs can really move. Candy throws
her head back and runs like the wind. Her addition to our family been a wonderful
thing for Jake too. They are so cute together. Thank you again for letting me
adopt this adorable little girl. She is such a good, happy dog.
all just love her. Judy Graves
Beagles and Buddies,
I just wanted to check in and let you know how our adopted beagles are doing.
We picked up Barney Boy and Snoopy Girl from B&B just two weeks ago and
it feels like they've been in our lives forever.
Snoopy got over her kennel cough and both of them are full of energy and love.
Snoopy Girl (now Suenyo) has adapted to life in the "pack" right away,
no surprise since your bio of her said she was used to having a canine companion...
but Barney Boy (now Basho) is having to learn how to be part of the pack and
share his humans with another dog. We're all adjusting to the new life
together. My husband put pictures on his website: http://www.phys.lsu.edu/faculty/cjohnson/beagles.html
to them, I have an excuse to walk along the San Diego River at least twice a
day. The exercise will probably help both of them lose a few pounds, too! Everybody
smiles when they see the eager beagles coming toward them, and they are great
with children. They still wear their B&B tags and we have told everybody
about your good work in El Monte.
That's all for now. Let me know if you need any questions.
do new dogs and babies get along?
The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.
However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds
such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely
to snap at children.
Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better
than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.
With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't
know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older
dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into
