Off To the Happy Hunting Grounds

We’ve had Tobie for the past ten years. She has been a really good dog for us. She was our kid before we had any.

She was always good with the kids too, even while dealing with their good natured torture of daily tail pulling, dog food soaking and wrestling in the grass.
Tobie has traveled to Oregon, Arizona, Mexico, the mountains of New Mexico and California with us. For all her travels… she never did learn to enjoy rides in the car. She much preferred the back yard or a neighborhood walk. Especially if we allowed her the time to smell. She couldn’t help herself… being a beagle her nose controlled her life. She was a pretty smart dog too, racking up some mad skillz… rolling over, speaking, shaking hands, sitting, staying and she’d even ring a bell to go outside.
The last few months have consisted of lazy days laying in the backyard… too tired to do much more. Today was her day… She headed off to the happy hunting grounds where she can chase rabbits all day with no more cancer or pain to slow her down, plus she’s probably enjoying all the table scraps she wants and couldn’t have while here with us.
