This is an oldie but still a favorite of mine. The original was sent to a friend in Portugal who is a big fan of beagles :-) We adopted our dog Constance a little over 6 years ago. They were not sure how old she was then, somewhere between 6 and 8. So she is at least 12 years old now, a senior girl, but still full of energy. And she has these long, long ears that flap in the wind!
