Arrival Story:
I had a wonderful dog, Teddy, that I had raised from birth and he was almost 15 years old. He had arthritis in his back, ate special food for his kidneys, and couldn't stand up on his own until I helped him to his feet. I knew it was time to let him go, but I also knew I couldn't live alone, and if I had to give him up, I had to have someone to fill the void. I finally had him euthanized, and the following day my daughter found an ad in the newspaper for beagle puppies. We went to the breeder's house and they had four or five puppies in a little pen in the yard. They let the puppies out, and they all looked exactly alike so I couldn't choose. My daughter knelt on the ground and Sparky was the first one to come to her, so we took him. The breeder lived about 40 minutes from us, and he cried all the way home! It didn't take long to figure out that Sparky is not your average beagle. He is quite aggressive and when he was younger he bit us rather frequently. Now he has calmed down a lot, but he is a little hard to trust. A lot of people probably wouldn't have tolerated his behavior, but as I have learned to exercise my "pack leader" mentality he has become a lot more docile. And I love him!
