For some reason I am reminded of the little Prince George. With his proud papa.

    I lost my beloved Petey on Saturday. He was a rescue that was about 13 or 14 years old. We got him when he was about 9-10 and had 4 wonderful years making memories with him and making his life special like he was. We miss him so much as does his beagle sister Terra. Rest in peace sweet boy….

    • So sorry to hear Darlene! You gave him the best 4 years of his life and he went romping to the bridge knowing he was loved and will be patiently waiting for you and Terra to play together again.

      Darlene, I am so sorry to hear about Petey… cling to your sweet memories and the knowledge that he had a good life, thanks to you. You have my sympathy.

        My heart breaks for you and Terra. Petey spent the best years of his life with you. Till you meet again…..

      Oh, I am so sorry. Laurie said something on this blog that I always thought was nice – that they really don’t have any memories of the hard lives they had before. Dogs live in the present and the wonderful years he had with you cancelled out anything bad that happened before.

      So sorry for your loss but take comfort in your memories. Petey sure knew that you loved him and was thankful that you took such good care of him.

    • Kate (Gandolf's mom) said

      Oh, I am so sorry for your loss. But what a wonderful thing you did, adopting an older dog and giving him his wonderful life for the last years of his life. Bless you. And I hope you take comfort in the wonderful memories you have. So so sorry.

      Darlene, we all know how hard it is. And bless you for taking in an older boy and making the balance of his life happy. That outweighs everything that came before for him.

      So sorry to hear. We love our pets like children. How amazing you are to adopt a dog that you knew you would only have a short time. Petey’s life was blessed because of that!

    • Luana, Cody, and Henry said

      Darlene, I am so sorry to hear about Petey’s passing. You gave him a warm, loving home in his last years, and I’m sure he loved and appreciated you for that.

    I too see a striking resemblance.

    Sorry for your loss Darlene. I lost my best buddy, Barney (14 year old beagle) in October. I’m still having a hard time with it.

    I adore this picture. SO sweet. 🙂

  5. Susan in DE said

    VERY cute picture!! And I think Sherm has Phillip’s eyes. :->

    So sorry to hear the news about Petey. Take comfort in all the lovely memories you have of him and never forget that you gave him so much love and a wonderful home.

    Just read the comments about the special bowls for slowing beagles down eating (an impossible task?!) JB eats at a reasonable pace but Cassie gobbles hers down in seconds if she’s allowed to. I read a tip in a doggy magazine – select three or four largish stones from the garden (make sure they’re too big to swallow and not the kind that will splinter, nice smooth hard ones) and put them in the bowl. They have to push the stones around the bowl to get all the food and it slows them down considerably. It’s worked very well with Cassie; she eats much slower now than when she first came to us. Perhaps the fact that she’d had her food scattered in the garden hadn’t helped. Apparently it was done because she eats fast but I think that probably only made her worse, because she would eat it fast before the other beagle she lived with found it. The stones work a treat though and it means you don’t always have to use the same bowl to feed.

    • Kate (Gandolf's mom) said

      My brother puts his dogs’ kong in the bowl. SImilar idea that his boxer has to push it all around while he eats. Otherwise, she eats too quickly.

    • Susan in DE said

      They do that with horses that eat too fast as well …. a couple of good sized smooth rocks in the bottom of the feed bucket will slow you down! Hmmm, might have to think about doing this with my own plate …. ;->

  7. Yes – Sherman and Phillip have the same tilt of the head. You can difinately tell they are related.

  8. Carol, Eddy's mom said

    Love the picture, definitely two peas in a pod. (and they both have lovely manicures)

    Rest in peace Petey. Lots of hugs to Darlene and Terra
