Seems I got an anonymous poster about the girls! You know that drives me crazy!!!! Anyway, to anwer your question, I acquired my beagle 11 years ago (can you believe that?) and have had her since she was 6 weeks old. I took one look, picked a flea off of her nose and said, "Girl, you are MINE!".
The Calicos we got 3 years ago from Happy Tales in Franklin at the Factory.
More musings later
