It’s so quiet here! And so much room in bed! But we loved having Buddy and Holly, and Camp Kramer is open to them all-year round.

    Yes, it’s bittersweet when they head home. It’s fun to have them, but nice to have your (relative) peace and quiet back. They’re all so cute!

    I’m sure they miss you too!~ I am totally amazed that the boys share their bed with the campers. My girl won’t even share her bed with her brothers. sigh.

  4. Just a general comment. I just love seeing all these beagles! Laurie and Phillip thanks for opening up your home to us. My avatar is (of course) Scout – mixed beagle, with very beagle traits. He’s set in his (13 yr old) ways, and that’s putting me off from getting a (real) beagle at the moment. But, when that time comes, I am going to adopt two beagles, hopefully find a pair that have lived together so they aren’t split up. In the meantime, I get my multiple beagle fix right here!

      Scout sounds lovely Scott and it will be wonderful if you can give two beagles a forever home sometime in the future.

        A bonded pair is very hard to place no matter what the breed. Of course Beagles are special.

        From someone who works with a rescue, thank you for considering adopting a bonded pair. You are #1!!!

      Scott, you’d be surprised about how adaptable they can be, even at 13 (assuming Scout doesn’t actually hate other dogs). When we lost Jordan last year at 16, Josie definitely mourned (even though she always treated him like the village idiot). I took her to some adoption days and “yappy hours” to visit with other dogs, and she was bored and snobby. I figured at 12 (and now 13 this year), she really did not want to be bothered with another dog in the house (and definitely not a puppy!). Then Lady “found” us and needed a home, and I was stunned at how accepting and actually pleased Josie was to have the silly little 9 year old monster around. They don’t play together or anything like that, but Lady stuffs her face into Josie’s food bowl and Josie just “laughs”, where as years ago she would have kicked her little beagle butt across the county.

      That being said, I believe when the time is right and the right dog (or dogs!) come along, you’ll find each other. In my life, I’ve learned that if I was hasty and “made” something happen, it usually hasn’t had the best outcome. :->

      • Hi Susan,

        About three years ago, Scout actually shared a town house with three other dogs for about 6 months while I was working out of town. He got along “ok”, but was very protective of my bedroom which was also my office. So, I’m just not sure if he would ever allow another dog to have the same space as he has. I wouldn’t want a second dog to fear coming into my room. Then again, the situation is different now. I can always try it as rescue groups are willing to allow “trials.” Maybe next Spring……when my course load decreases.
