Malori, the full Beagle, will be 12 on October 11th of 2008.
She's been in my life nearly as long as Canela Bella. We got her so that she could be a companion for Canela. But people remained Canela's favourite, and Canela has always been Malori's favourite.
Malori has seemed to lose her bay since we've gotten cats at the doggies' more advanced years. Malori used to bay, in such a lovely way, whenever there were cats on the fences of the yards wherever we lived...
Both dogs, through much patience and tolerance, have allowed me to achieve a childhood dream of having kitties in the house, too, something my parents said was impossible to mix with dogs, as a way to prevent me from having a cat for a pet.
Well it's been one year now, that I've had cat/s in my own life, and thanks to the benevolence of my older lady doggies, I have a lovely home environment of two of the sweetest dogs who've been with me for about a third of my life, and two wonderful newish additions in cats, and it's been one very interesting and happy year, in this kind of way, which I've needed. I have been so pleased at truly how well they've all gotten along. PEACE!
