My Parents and I had to say goodbye to our 16 year old Beagle mix, Kelsey this morning. So very difficult because in my eyes she was/is the best dog we had.
We were introduced to her (not sure of her name before she came to us) in May 2004. I was 24 out the time still living at home and that February we had to say goodbye to my childhood Beagle Mandy. My Mom and I were headed to Giant in Greenbriar and we noticed Puppy Adoptions next door at Petco were going on, so we decided to go over and look. The first pen we came to were the Beagle mixes. We looked at each other and went over to pick one up. Kelsey at the time growled (we later found out she doesn’t like to be picked up). Well we were instantly hooked and I know I needed to fill the void of a dog. We put in an application and she was ours. It didn’t take long for my Dad to be on board. My parents we’re leaving the next day for Italy for 2 weeks so it was my job to potty train her. I think I did a fabulous job.
Thank you A Forever Home Rescue for my best dog yet, Kelsey. She helped me to get over my childhood dog and we made so many other memories. I have since moved out of my parents house and wanted a dog but didn’t want to remove Kelsey from the home she knows, so I decided to go back to A Forever Home in 2011 and adopt my 2nd Beagle mix, Josie. Kelsey idolized and followed Josie wherever she went. They (Josie rather) got into several fights and had many times being together. I will miss the love Kelsey has for Josie. Kelsey is and will be extremely missed in our family.
