alittleleeway readers lives with a beagle (pictured above) and this beagle goes by the name of Gracie. And also come to find out Gracie supposedly does not fit the beagle bill and is allegedly much loved and appreciated by her guardians. As we all know, I'm always open to telling the whole story here. So I will be working to learn more about Gracie in the coming weeks. There may be some evidence of guardian bias in the reports I'm receiving about Gracie, so I'll try to get to the crux of the matter in answering the question, "Can a beagle be a good dog?" I'm nothing if not open minded.
As for goals this week, I'm thinking we should all be as kind as possible to those around us and primarily to ourselves. Testing season is coming up and there's going to be a need for some extra TLC for all concerned. I'm already getting a little testy about the tests. Goal: Kindness in the form of extra gifts for ourselves and cheerful, supportive chat with others.
