This past Saturday, we were delighted to have Dan and Cheryl W. from Whitefish, Montana, adopt our deaf boy, Stuart the Beagle. Dan and Cheryl had recently lost their elderly blind and deaf Beagle, Penny, and were looking for another special dog. It turns out that just about the same time they contacted us initially about Stuart, they also heard about another Beagle in their area named Daisy who was looking for a new home. They went to see her last week, fell in love, and took her home. That's Daisy on the left.
Well, Dan and Cheryl thought Daisy would like to have a boyfriend, and they drove out to the ranch on Saturday so the entire family could meet Stuart. Daisy took to Stuart just fine, and pretty soon both Beagles and their new Mom and Dad were headed home to Whitefish!
Dan emailed on Sunday to say that Stuart has settled in and Daisy had already bonded with him. In fact, when they first put Stuart in a kennel next to their bed Saturday night, Daisy grew frantic. She wanted Stuart on the bed with her and Dan and Cheryl. So Dan and Cheryl relented, and both Beagles spent the night on their bed. (I don't know how well Dan and Cheryl slept but I'm sure the two Beagles slept really, really well!)
And, Dan told us, Stuart had already given Daisy two complete head baths Saturday evening. No wonder she likes that boy!
Thank you, Dan and Cheryl!
