Hello my name is William and my wife, Judit, and I adopted Gieselle, a female white beagle with several brown/black spots. She has been a true joy in our household and it appears she has settled down, finally adopting us as her new family. We have her registered at the Bee Ridge Veterinarian Clinic in Sarasota, our other beagle has been attending her vet appointments there and we feel very comfortable with those veterinarians. Thank you for inquiring about "Jess", her nick name, its nice to see that these dogs are still cared about from their previous homes. Please feel free to send correspondence about Jess and we will gladly reciprocate, I believe I sent a few pictures of them last time but if not then here is one of our favorites! Thanks again and take care! Sincerely, William & Judit Sterbinsky
Our baby (the beagle once named Alamo), Buster, is doing wonderful. He's happy and he's keeping our older dog, Mocha, happy and young. Buster and Mocha reek havok throughout the house but it seems to be what dogs belonging to the Murphys do. He and Mocha play tug of war with rope toys and how they ever end up shredded is amazing. I thought these toys were supposed to be tough. They run and jump all over the furniture and lay around like the king and queen of the place. When Bill and I are at work, the kids certainly don't help keeping them off the furniture, they love it and play with the dogs. We don't mind....its the way we've always been. A little extra cleaning is all it means. Anyway, here are a few pictures. As you can tell Mr. Buster is a happy little guy. Best, Terry Murphy
2/23/10 I don't know if you remember me but I found two of your old emails when we were in the process of adopting Ella II. We lived in Melbourne and adopted Ella II in July of 2007. Ella is the light of our lives. She is the most adorable thing. We are now in Fairmont WV, we moved here in the fall of 2007. Ella just loves the mountains. We live back off a one lane road and have hall nature around us. She is in heaven. She loves the snow and just bounces all over it. She LOVES everybody and has just a wonderful disposition. You would think she was almost human. :) Ella is doing just fine. She's very active and the house training is going good an occasional mess up, nothing big. We do playing all day and exercising, but she seems to be at her highest point of playfulness around 7:30 in the evening until around ten just into everything,trying to get her to reverse it to the afternoons. haha She will be starting her obedience classes on august 22. All in all she is settling in great. We love her dearly. Patty ***2nd Update*** A little note to let you know that Ella is doing just great. She is healthy and happy. She's been in obiedence classes and she is doing great but he beagle nose leads her astary once in awhile. haha And she is a digger outside. I guess we'll find ourselves in China one day. hahahahaha... All in all we LOVE her to death, she is the sweetest and most loving little dog anyone could ask for. I want also to let you know that my husband has had a promotion and we will be relocated to fairmont west virginia. We just found out 2 weeks ago and he will start Oct 1st. hopefully Ella and I will follow the middle to end of October when we do closing on our new house. So we will all have a big change to the weather. I myself have lived in florida for 45 years since I moved here in high school. All these years I've been back 4-5 times a year to vist family. My sons are Pitt graduates and decided to live up there so they are an hour away. We will love it I'm sure. if we get a chance we will email you updated pictures of Ella and I'm sure we will stay in touch over email. Thank you again for saving all these beautiful dogs and giving them a second chance at life. You are all wonderful people. Patty, Bill and Ella
Hi Angela, Charlotte is wonderful! She fits into our family so well! She's such a sweet dog and loves to be petted, which everyone loves to do! Of course, she still loves to chase those balls! The last time we weighed her at the vet's office, which was around Thanksgiving, she was right around 30 lbs. We have her on Wellness HealthyWeight dog food. Of course, she is always ready and waiting to eat anything she comes across, so we have learned to keep the door to the kitchen garbage can closed and food out of reach on the counter! (I guess you would say she just about has us trained!) She sleeps in her crate at night and we also put her in the crate when we are gone. She still will try to sleep on the furniture, if she thinks we are not paying attention. She has a comfy dog bed, which she also enjoys sleeping on. As I said we put her in the crate at night, but my husband loves to let her out in the morning and send her in to jump on the bed to wake me up or if our granddaughter is spending the night, she will race upstairs to wake her up. Our granddaughter loves for Charlotte to wake her up in the mornings! Our daughter lives next door to us. Charlotte gets to play quite often with our daughter's chocolate lab, Libby, and she gets plenty of exercise when they are together. The lab loves to run and play, so she gets Charlotte to running around, too. Occasionally, Charlotte has to remind Libby who's boss and will snap at her. Libby loves to fetch sticks and Charlotte will run and get the stick before Libby. Charlotte doesn't do to well at returning the stick; she just wants to keep it away from Libby. I don't know if you are interested in college football, but I should tell you that Charlotte has become a University of Alabama football fan. I'm sending you a couple of pictures of her and we're sure she's saying "Roll Tide!" We are so happy we found TBBR and that Charlotte became part of our family! Hope you enjoy the pictures! Best wishes to you and TBBR in 2010! Linda Sanders
A few pics from Watson's fun. He was great camping in Arcadia at Peace River at Halloween. We didn't have time to get him dressed up but he did go canoeing and even rode with us on the ATV! We took him last weekend with us camping at the Nascar weekend in Homestead. He got "pimped out" for the occasion! We met another couple camping near us with 2 beagles that Watson just went nuts wanting to play with them. We did many walks with the other 2 beagles. It was so cool. People are simply amazed how mellow he is and yet he plays like a puppy at times. Thanks Jeff
