We adopted Honey’s predecessor, Shadow, when she was about 9 years old (give or take). We have no idea what went into the recipe but I’ve always thought I saw some shepherd in her coat and tail and some hound in her face and nose. Her bay and her intelligence (or lack thereof, she was sweet but slow) also were more hound-like.
The funny thing is Shadow had lots of dopplegangers. One we were pleased to see was Eric Goebelbecker’s Gage. And we met others around and about the neighborhood.
Dark and mysterious–who knows what beagles lurk in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows.
