Arrival Story:
My daughter's cats were taken to the humane society and we went to recover them. While there, I decided to look for a companion for Sparky. In our shelter, they put the medium and large breeds in walk-in kennels with chain link gates. She was sitting with her side up against the gate, and her nose stuck in one of the links, and was just looking at me out of the top of her eyes. It was so cute! They have a room where you can meet your potential new family member, and it is has a lot of echo. When they brought her in, she started baying and didn't stop the whole time. She has a very high, girly voice, and I think by the end of our visit my ears were nearly bleeding from the noise. And I fell totally in love with her. She was picked up as a stray and whoever lost her didn't claim her. I got lucky because the day I went in was the day she was adoptable. I snatched her up!! They had named her Petunia, but we didn't like that much so we tried to find a more doggy name. We settled on Delilah after the dog in Homeward Bound II, and then it just ended up as Lila (unless we are scolding her). She was the calm to ease the little storm that is Sparky. She has been great, because she is all the things a beagle is supposed to be - patient, loving, calm, gentle. We did find out why she was picked up as a stray though - she's a runner. If she can slip out the door, she is GONE! I had to have her microchipped for my own peace of mind, but luckily she never gets far without stopping to let us catch up!!
