Our beagle came into our lives right on queue, like it was meant to be. We picked him up from his old family as their circumstances had changed and they couldn’t give him the attention he needed. He got into our car and never looked back.. our lives changed from that moment onwards. We’ve had tears of frustration when he kept doing his Houdini trick by escaping from his harness..…only to turn up with a look on his face that seemed to say ‘what’s the problem with you lot?’
After the age of 2, he began to settle down (sort of!) developing so many little idiosyncrasies. We are sure fellow beagle service providers will recognise some of them…we can only list a few:
Bed Thief & bed hogger
Teddy thief & teddy destroyer
Chief food manipulator
Beagle many beds
We are 100% sure Beagle had an internal alarm clock, which never ceased to fail, making sure to notify us at every meal time and whenever he decided a snack was due.
All of these characteristics only enhanced his unique personality and made him our Beagle. He has been the best friend to each of us, he gave each family member a personalised emotional therapy service…only requesting belly rubs, yummy food and long country walks in return. He gave way more than we could ever hope to give him back. He was the life and soul of our home, and he was, and remains, at the centre of all our hearts. Beagle knew us better than we knew ourselves and was always aware of our movements and moods.
Thank you so much Beagle….you are forever in our hearts….see you on Rainbow Bridge x
PS Yes our Beagle was called Beagle
