Story: I brought Graziella home two weeks before (May 2006) my beloved Begonia tripped on the last few stairs on her way out to the bathroom. Her stumble caused much crying and pain and upon taking her to the emergency room for animals, the x-rays showed that she had bone cancer. It seems that God knew I would be loosing Begonia and sent Graziella into my life to help with the void. No dog will ever truly "replace" my Begonia, she was my special girl, but I'm able to redirect my grief into helping Graziella. This incident created a permanent place in the pack for her which is when I decided to give her her permanent name. I named her after genus name for a very pretty red ornamental grass, Graziella miscanthus. Her name also means lovely and graceful in Italian.
Graziella's personality went from being so shy as to hide in another room behind furniture, to a rather confident member of the pack. Graziella made huge strides with in the short time I've had her. Graziella became the busy body of the pack. She LOVES attention and likes to "talk" to us when she is excited or wants something. She will even sing for you if you ask her to which usually turns into a howling duet with Verbena, our beagle.

Story: I have been wanting a beagle for a couple of years now. After spending so much time with out a little dog in my pack, I was finally in a position to adopt a small beagle. I found Verbena's profile on petfinder. She was available through Vashon Island Pet Protectors. They had found her as a stray and after no one claimed her, they put her up for adoption. After talking to her foster mom and meeting her, we set off on a week long trial period. By the fifth day of having her, I knew I wanted to love her forever and keep her in our pack! She is such a sweet, friendly, inquisitive and cuddly little dog. Life is better with Verbena.
