We lost Lola on Friday, December 11, 2015. Lola was our first BREW Beagle, and in fact our first Beagle. She joined our family when Wade wanted a dog like Snoopy for his birthday in May, 2007. Her loving nature and personality convinced us to get another Beagle (we kept going until we had four). As we added more Beagles to our family, Lola (or as we called her, Lola-Belle) was always the Alphadog, having to be in front no matter what we were doing. Anytime we went out for a walk, as soon as we left the house, she would pull us towards the car. She loved to ride in the car, and would quickly head for the front seat or the lap of anyone in the front, where she would look out the window, panting with excitement. She also loved walking in the woods, and when we went to Prince William Forest Park, Leesylvania State Park, Occoquan Regional Park, or anywhere else where she could be on unpaved ground, she would pull us along with joy, stopping only to bark at any other living creatures we passed. She got along well with our other dogs (unless they got near her food) and when we adopted Flo we found out that Lola had a nurturing, protective side to her.
We’ll miss you, Lola. Thank you for showing us that there’s something about a Beagle.
