I was cruising around and found the pages associated with, to that date, the largest effort BREW had undertaken: pulling 16 beagles living in hideous conditions on a WV property with an impending ice storm approaching. We had a number of cars make the long drive up there, brave bad weather, VERY unsocialized beagles, and despite it all, there was a happy ending for each of these dogs!
Here's a screenshot of one of the pages (click the pic to enlarge):
My family, then just me, Russ, and our young son, Harrison, fostered one of the oldest beagles from this bunch: Susie. She was quite ill with cancer and had only a few months to live. So she spent it with us - enjoying a life of good food, no chains around her neck, and a warm dog bed in a sunny spot.
All 16 beagles were eventually adopted out to families in OH, PA, MD, VA and elsewhere.
If you want to read the story of the beagles, go here. (Give it a minute to load...most links and photos (can be enlarged) are working)

- Do you remember when BREW was bringing in these beagles, we'd love to hear from you with a comment below!
- And if you enjoyed this trip down memory lane, let us know with a comment. We can do this again!
