BUDDY & OZZIE, The Rescue Beagle and Hound Dogs That Keep Each Other Company (PART 5)

“I didn’t know what beagles were like so I had no idea what energy they have.  I thought because he was a little bit older that he would be calm.  I tried to keep him contained in a pen and that didn’t work.

Once I put him on the patio while I was cleaning the floor and he broke through the plastic screen covering a window, so he made his own doggie door.

Buddy is more concerned with what I am doing and Ozzie is concerned with what Buddy is doing.

The only scare I had with Ozzie was when he ate chocolate pudding, but he was okay.

There was never any jealously between them.  They know their pecking order.”

“I felt like she had given up.

The shelter people told me they found her in the street and she was afraid of everything.

They tried to dissuade me from adopting her.

She was days away from being euthanized.

This shelter put their animals down after only three days.

It was a high kill shelter with little resources.

I put a deposit on her so they wouldn’t put her down and told my boyfriend, who I lived with at the time, I wouldn’t take her back no matter how many problems she had.”

“He said, adopt her.

I did.

I called her Shy, because she was so scared, and designated Valentine’s Day as her birthday.

The veterinarian told me she must be six months old when I got her.

That made her birthday sometime in February.

I made it Valentine’s Day because she was the sweetest gift I’ve ever received.
