email us the story and picture of the
happy and successful adoption of your CBR-East Beagle!
Dear CBR-East, Two years ago we
said goodbye to our best friend, Delta, a beagle/bassett mix who had
shared our lives for > 11 years. At that time we agreed... There was
another dog in our future, but not a beagle...
out of respect for Delta.
OK, we were wrong! When a friend adopted a beagle mix
and brought him
to visit, Cleo the cat was clearly fascinated & seemed to be telling
us she remembered her friend Delta. She marched over and sat next to
the new dog, purring up a storm.
In February we adopted Zoey from your program. She is
now known as Bourbon, the Kentucky Beagle :) She and Cleo are best
friends - most of the time. Bourbon has brought humor, silliness and
fun into our home, and it feels as though she has been with us for
longer than a few months. She is a total bed hog and loves to greet
us when we come home by standing up to look us in the eye (or as
close as possible!) While wagging her entire back end like crazy. We
adore her!! We are so grateful to CBR-East for matching us with Zoey/Bourbon.

Thought it might be about time for an
update with a picture or two attached! Maggie, now also
affectionately called Queen Maggie Moo Moo, Moomalicious, Miss
Wigglebutt or just plain Maggsie, is delighting us every minute
of every day. Her personality continues to come out as she
settles in, and this is
indeed a happy home. She spends most days with my mom, who has
decided it's a good thing to have a dog in her bed or on her
lap! At 35 pounds (verified at the first vet appointment last
weekend, and we took a couple pounds off of her before that!)
she is a lapful, but nobody here is complaining.
loves the fenced in yard, and we love watching her tear around
it...amazed at how fast she is, and how light on her feet as
well. Funny to see that she does not like to step on anything
icy, so she very gracefully vaults over the frozen puddles or
low areas that have iced over, just like a freakin antelope!
has had her first basic obedience class, and was immediately the
teacher's pet. Not sure who is being trained, her or us, but is
fun nonetheless, and will be invaluable as she gets more sure of
herself here (cocky is the attitude that is showing itself at
times!). And other than some occasional curiosity with the
birds, she is basically not interested in either of them (except
for the spilled seed she can lick up!) Our lives now seem to
spin around her, and when are we going to walk her, feed her,
play with her, etc. There are not enough ways or words to say
'Thank you' for that. I hope this finds you well and working
your magic with new CBRE inductees!
