Rasha was born right around the time I found Beagle World. (My Sadie is just a couple months older.)
When I saw Rasha's first pictures, I thought she looked like a Beagle Angel! :angel:
Happy Birthday, you beautiful girl! :heart:
She was originally called RASHER as a pet name when she was born beacuse she looked like a little piglet, all pink and a squished up nose. All the puppies were given names when they were born so we could tell them apart.
We thought Rasha was going to die on her second day as she went down hill and was a very sick young pup but we forced her to feed off Willow and went to bed expecting to find a dead pup in the morn.Next morning we went to check on the pups and low and behold Rasha was alot stronger and feeding off Willow. This made a strong bond with Rasha and our selves and she was the pup we kept.
We kept her name but made it more feminine by adding the 'a'. We wanted to have another 'show Beagle' but unfortunatly after a very good early show career Rasha failed to stop growing and is now just not the right quality for the show ring but she has taken to agility with gusto and therefore lies her future /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
