There are times things don't go how we expect. DD1 sadly told me that the previous owners of Sunny, the chunky beagle, really want her back. The issue that allowed my kids to have her was a severe asthmatic issue from the former owners chil... Read more

DH met the new granddog Sunny this weekend. He approves, not that that matters to DD1. She's still in love; gave the dog a bath which was not so easy. We've all decided Sunny is not pure beagle, more likely a Basset, Beagle mix. She's too long a... Read more
