Why do you love Beagles?

I love their curiosity! I see Griffin and wonder how he experiences the world and delight in seeing him explore his surroundings through that nose! He's a classic beagle; friendly, playful, funny, and always hungry! That little nugget will do anything for a treat, and I love being able to reward him by letting him just simply be a beagle.

What made you want to own a Beagle?

My earliest memory of wanting a beagle was watching Snoopy as a child. I loved the sass and funny antics of Snoopy. When I was 10, my parents adopted a beagle but sadly, he ran away after only a week on moving day. I was devastated but learned that day that the next time I got a beagle, I would have to be grown and responsible enough to train both myself and my beagle properly. So here I am 25 years later the proud (and smitten) owner of my beagle, Griffin. I wanted a faithful companion to join me in my daily life; exercise, volunteering, and a cozy tv buddy to snuggle up with at nights. The vivacious little spunk I loved about Snoopy long ago is completely present in my Griffin. He's funny, smart, sassy and a joy to be around.

How has your life changed since getting your Beagle?

Griffin is my mirror. He picks up on my emotions (even better than my boyfriend does!) and because of this I have learned to be more aware of how I impact the people around me. My sweet boy knows when I've had a hard day; he'll jump into my lamp and just look at me with those big beagle eyes like 'everything's ok.' On a good day, he'll run to his leash and bring it back to me, "c'mon, Mom, let's celebrate by taking a walk!' Is it strange to say that my beagle can read me? Maybe, but its true and he sets an example for me to follow; treat others with love and joy, always. i once read a bumper sticker that said " I want to be the person my dog thinks I am." Ever since sharing my life with Griffin, I make that my goal every day.

Introduction

I'm "Griffin's human" but I actually do have a name, Sally. Both Griffin and I volunteer for Missing Pet Partnership. While we love going on searches, we do need some fun and more beagles in our lives- and this good looking group sounds perfect!
