My family adopted our dog on 12/5/10. She was called Mindy by her foster family, but we named her Mandy. We were told she is a beagle mix, but our vet, who breeds beagles says she is a purebred lemon beagle. There were a few bumps in the road the first months but she has become, what my kids call, my favorite child! She sleeps in bed with someone every night and is quite the princess here. The attached photo is from her first Christmas with us.
