Dear Beagles and Buddies :
We are the Shih family, we adopted Thomas (a Basset Hound, and a Boarder Collie
mix) about a month ago. He is a very sweet dog. We love Thomas very much, so
does Minnie. At first Minnie (our other dog) was a bit jealous, but now they
are best friends. We know that Thomas is very happy here. Thank you very much!!!

guys, just wanted to let you know that 'lemmi' is doing really well. He settled
in really well and gets along with our dog,maxi really well.
He has lost a lot of weight and can actually run for a short distance and is
alot more alert.
Thank you for doing the job that you guys do, its so important.... The Bartholomew's...
is doing great. She has apparently been a spoiled little girl in the
past as she is always looking to get her tummy rubbed. We gladly induldge
her of course. She also seems to be house broken already too. My daughter
is getting more comfortable with her and my son doesn't want to leave her
alone. Lulu is a good sport about it and just walks away from him when she
doesn't want so much "attention." She Follows Mom and Dad around
everywhere we go and loves to go for rides and for walks in the park. She
even rode along in the back of Tanisha's jogging stroller while she ran around
the Rose Bowl. Like I said, "Spoiled." Anyway, we will continue
to keep you informed.
Thank you for
your help and the service you do.
Sincerely, Scott H.
hot, summer Sunday, a little boy and his parents came to visit Beagles and
Buddies. It was his birthday that day. This young man had asked all his friends
and relatives to bring doggie toys instead of human birthday toys so he could
donate them to all the big and little woofers and Beagles and Buddies! Altogether,
they brought in 4 huge bags of toys & other things for us to use! Amazing!
Below are some pictures to show you this wonderful little boy.
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
