I grew up with a beagle, Caramel. Pretty little girl...
At my first visit yesterday they had an 11 yr old beagle too.
He was all grey and his name was Henry.
I don't touch other people's dogs. Ever.
But for beagles... I make a HUGE exception.
For 1/2 the visit Henry sat by me on the floor as I worked with the kid and I scratched Henry's neck and ears just like we used to with the beast.
Then he went an sunbathed on the floor in the corner.
I missed my puppers but was so grateful for Henry letting me love him for a moment. I swear I felt puppers' little spirit saying hello. She knows we miss her and still think of her, love her, and look for her in the back yard.

Happy Day Moment #34
Service project with the stake, boxing canned goods for the Salvation Army. Showed up and friends from the ward actually knew my name. Felt a small step closer to belonging.
