I agree with Eleanor--they're very pretty babes, whether their colors are muted or bright. I think Shiloh was about their age when she started really going gray. And of course her --er--chubbiness
made her look older than her years too. People would pass us on our walks and say things like, Oh, what a sweet old girl. !!! I was offended for Shiloh's girly vanity and rushed to her defense, letting the person know that she wasn't old,that beagles just gray early. Now, at 12, she really is a sweet old girl.
What great pictures or such expressive faces! Like Sadie and Pooh, Moosie is 8 and has lost a lot of colour from his face... he looks a LOT like Sadie! I think it just makes their lovely black noses and brown eyes stand out even more beautifully, though! And Pooh looks sooooo distinguished.
For some reason Booker, who is 11 1/2, still has almost all of the colour in her face except for her eyelashes and eyebrows which are now white - I wonder why they are so different?!
