    I just had to share this note from a fellow RJ member (with his permission).
    He has an older beagle who he loves dearly. He had asked me about my beagles and I was curious about his older one.. how did he come to get him

    This was the response:

    From RJ member YAAD2000.....


    I have had beagles all my life. My most recent one "Magic" was found as a stray. Middle of Jan in northern Michigan, very cold out. Here was this 1y/o male beagle out sniffing around my van. He was nothing but skin and bones. I got him into the house...got him warmed up and fed. My daughter had a female beagle at the time, so I went and gave the stray a bath (didn't want him to pass on anything nasty to my daughter's beagle) I noticed he had a open sore on his backside. Didn't think much of it except to keep an eye on it. He of course slept with me that night. I didn't think he would last through the night. But when I woke up the next morning there he was curled right up next to me. The next day I took him back to the house where I thought he belonged. In not so many words, he told me that he gave the dog away and didn't care what happend to him. So I took him home with plans of posting an ad to find his owner. In the meantime I took him to the vet to get checked over. She saved the hair away from the open sore on his back and then shaved another spot on the other side. She told me that he was shot through the back with a 22. She had to take a step back, she said she never saw anyone eyes turn red before. Needless to say I was pissed that anyone would shoot this dog. I made my mind up right then and that this dog is mine. I have had Magic now for 13 yrs. He came into my life when I was in the process of getting a divorce. I needed a buddy right then

    He is tri-colored, the best dog I have ever owned. It will be really hard when he passes on. He is still in good health...good wt on him, friendly with everyone...and of course loves to bark and howl.
