Penny is a classic beagle. She is sweet as honey and has a keen sense of self- sometimes a mind of her own. We have been taking walks and rides together for the past ten years since she walked down the wooded path into our lives. Penny has shown me what it is like to be really laid back and patient while at home; and to be a persistent crusader outside. Her sense of smell, adventure and endurance leads us to often learn more about the other "wild lives" that inhabit this land.
Penny can sleep real late when it is raining outside, but out on fine days, going in her own chosen direction there is little reason for return. I call her my beagle kite heading out on line, and sometimes when turning around she is more like a bowling ball.
Circular walks always work best, but a little marching song on the return journey always helps us make it back home. I make up song and sing them to her. I think she likes them. Here is an early phrase:
"Look at Paul, running tall, chasing after Beagle small. Nose to ground, eye with glee, try to catch me and I'll flee!" We have other songs too, like "It was a Chihuahua day" or "She's walking fine." You might hear another song on the audio/video.
Most important, We thank Miranda for caring so much, and creating this special project - Penny is quite pleased!
