Anyway, that's neither here nor there. The point is this.
All these years, I've had esteem issues about having a poorly trained dog with a devil may care attitude. I now realize that no one was really to blame for Henry's issues. He was just a friendly dog cursed with the legacy of a rascally breed. The NYT has an article just today by a woman who wrote an entire book about problems with beagles. The author, Emily Yoffe, is concerned because a beagle just won the Westminster Dog Show, so she fears every citizen of this great land may head out this spring to get a beagle. I want you to know that I share this writer's concerns. Do not get a beagle. Beagles are cute dogs, but they have been known to wreck lives.
