New Beginnings 

It's been over 7 months since Miles left us and on any given day, as I walk up the front steps I will think "better hurry up and open the door because Miles will be anxious to get out for some play time in the backyard." When the dishwasher door is opened, I still expect to hear the clickety-clack of his paws on the kitchen floor as he comes in to scope out possible snacks (some bad habits were hard to break - he saw the dishwasher as his personal smorgasbord). Miles will always be missed!

Today we bring home a puppy, another beagle, that won't take Miles' place in our hearts, but will wiggle his way in to find his own little spot in our hearts.

This is a picture taken about 6 weeks ago. His father is a beagle originally from Sweden and his momma, a local Fraser Valley beagle. In keeping with his Swedish lineage, we've decided to name him Markus, Lars, Bjorn, Benny . . . . maybe, I'm not sure - it's still up for vote between the girls.

One this is for certain . . . life with a puppy in the house should be very interesting!
