This is Sophie, our sweet beagle. She was rescued in Tennessee as an unhealthy, very pregnant stray. Unfortunately, none of her pups survived, but she made a nice recovery thanks to the help of several caring people. Now, even though she's been safe and happy with us for more than two years, she still carries around and "buries" any small stuffed toy that resembles a puppy. We're not sure if she is just hiding the "pups," or if she is truly laying them to rest, but either way it is a sad but charming quirk. Our "beagle with baggage" adds a great deal of joy to our lives, and we hope to return the favor for many years to come. — The Sinon family, West Suffield
