Hi, my name is Kim. I just got my beagle in November, 2007. My little girl came from a research facility outside Guelph, Ontario somewhere. Thankfully not much has happened to her as far as i know. My sister came across her in her class. She is taking vetrinarian and knew she was special. Now she is all mine. She's a year and 8 months old. Very small, extrememly quiet and absolutely adorable! I love her to pieces. She was in a small cage for most of her life so I had to take it slow for a bit. Her paws would bleed on the first few walks from not being used to the pavement and she didn't have very much energy. She also had a bad skin irritation from living in filth /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif . Thankfully she is all better now and living the spoiled life hehe. I'm glad I found this place...I'm going to have tons of questions!!! Here are a few pictures of my sweetie...her name is Pixie.
