Although it has only just been a month since we adopted Pickles (we changed her name from Lucinda), she fits in as though we’ve had her forever. Pickles gets along beautifully with our other beagle, Phoebe, and they love to play chase in the yard. I enjoy taking the beagles to our son Max’s baseball games, where many people admire, pet, and ask about them, and Pickles loves the attention.

I always take the opportunity to share our story of adopting Pickles from Houston Beagle & Hound Rescue. As Pickles is very affectionate, well-behaved, and intelligent, I tell them we got all the joy of getting a lovely new family member without the hassles of housebreaking and training.

Keep up the awesome work!
