Don't Go!!



Five years ago, LONG before I was even born, my mom fostered a beagle family. This poor beagle mama had been abandoned by her human family. They moved and left her!! The beagle mama went next door and cried on the porch for some help and the neighbors took her to their vet. Their vet knew of SOS Beagles. SOS Beagles asked my mom if she could take the family after the babies were born and she did (ha, like they even needed to ask).


She called the mama Sweet Pea. When the mama was adopted her new family called her Meadow. My mom picked one of the puppies for her friend in NJ (who had already adopted Twinkie--a beagle running loose on a local college campus)

Twinkie


This is baby Sweet Pea:

Big girl Sweet Pea:


My mom leaves tomorrow so I am sticking close to her, even closer than usual. We know what happens when the suitcases come out. First she is going to visit her family then she is going to a BEAGLEFEST. There she will see some of the Sweet Pea family! I know she is excited but I am NOT. We will have our favorite petsitter who comes and plays with us but I want my mom! Please don't go!!

She says she will send us pictures that our petsitter can show us. And when she gets back she will help me celebrate my first blogoversary! I hope she brings me lots of presents.

I know it will make her happy to see those beagles again...but I wish she wouldn't go...

We saw some beagles at the store last week. They were much better behaved than the Chihuahua that attacked Brice.

Aw, it's always hard to watch them leave and wait for them to come back. But she will be back.

That's a sweet story about the mama and baby beagles.

I hate when my Old Girl leaves, too. It's the pits! But I'll bet she'll get some great pictures!

Hello there River,

Your mom's a real hero. We're glad that she stepped in to help Meadow and her puppers. We're glad too that the puppies have found new homes.

Don't be too sad. Am sure your momma will be back in no time and with loads of presents too!
