FLASHBACK FRIDAY ~ CHESSIE


Today, we are flashing back ~ way back ... to remember, and share images of one of
the best pups ever!  Miss Chesapeake Red ... a pure bred (from a rather famous hunting line
of beagles, raised in central Michigan) came to us as a pup and was part of our family for
nearly 18-years ... through two generations of "little ones".
She was a lover, though never lost her hunter instincts.  We always said she walked on five paws,
nose to the ground and every critter was her target!  Off the leash?  An open door?  Away she
went, following whatever scent was in the air.  
Thankfully, always found, though often miles from home.
We had only lived in Michigan a short time when we adopted her, so her name was in memory
of the Chesapeake Bay region (we had moved from northern Virginia).  And "Red" was due to 
her bi-color, rather than the traditional tri-color of most beagles.
Over her years with us, she lived in three states, always adaptable and was sadly missed
when her time to cross the rainbow arrived.  But Chessie gave much to our lives and we thank her.

Our friends, the FiveSibes host a
FLASHBACK FRIDAY Blog Hop.
