July 15, 2011:
week after losing my Elizabeth, we said goodbye to our Clark. It was time. His little body was worn out. But that doesn't
make it any easier to let go. My deepest gratitude and love go out to Beth, his devoted perma-foster mom. She is the
reason Clark was our superman. Because of her, Clark lived a beautiful life spending summers at the cottage. He's
gone from one heaven to another because of you, Beth.
It's been a while since we let you know how Clarky is doing. Clark is an old guy as you know
and will be staying with his wonderful foster mommy for his golden years. We know he's slowed down quite a bit over the last
year or so following his appearance on Animal House Calls last February, but he's still enjoying his leisurely life with Beth
and her beagle, Sheba. We hope to have a pupdate from foster mom soon!
All About Clark...
Clarky was everybody's baby at our April Howlers Meetup on Saturday, April 4th!!!
had a hoot at Pawsway on Saturday! If you haven't joined our BYOB (Bring Your Own Beagle!) Meetup group, become a member TODAY!
We try to get together at indoor and outdoor facilities once a month! There's nothing like bringing a million beags together
for playtime! On Saturday, we had a few of our BOB beagles up for adoption make the scene too, including Dwight D. Eisenhowler,
Pepper and, of course, our little charmer Clark! He's too cute for words really! And he got plenty of cuddly attention at
the shindig. Hard to believe he hasn't been adopted. There's no such thing as OLD when it comes to a beagle, don't you know!

Clark is still waiting for his Forever Home! Could you be the Super Family
of His Dreams?!!
UPDATE as of May 12, 2008:
officially changing his name from Clark Can’t to Clark Can do!
How much do I love this dog? No words can
describe. Yes, I have a weakness for the oldies but he’s so extra scrumptious! He may not be able to leap tall buildings
in a single bound, but I’m guessing once he’s fully recuperated from his neuter, this boy is going to enjoy a
second puppyhood! I can see that familiar twinkle in his eyes to prove it!
Where did Clark come from? We’ll
never really know. He was discarded by someone. And only they know his real age. We’re guessing him at about 12.
scars on his face and ears come from a past that will remain a mystery to us. Are they war wounds courtesy of other dogs?
Or are they the lasting memories of hunting days, ravaged by thorn bushes time and time again?
Clark is not the first Ohio dog we’ve reached out to help. He won’t be the last. The situation
in Ohio is more critical than you can imagine. So many rural pounds not more than shacks, with little to no resources. American-based
rescue groups are overflowing as a result. That’s why Canadian rescue groups like ours have offered our help when space
allows. After all, a dog in need is a dog in need – no matter where they are.
Clark was worth the trouble.
He arrived on the same day as Magnolia Pearl did from Windsor. Thanks again to an incredible team of Rescue Transport Volunteers,
he was in our arms by that rainy evening. Given the time of his arrival, Clark overnighted with yours truly. And he
was so tired. Exchanged polite howl-o’s with my beagles then went straight to bed.
The next day, my wonderful
vet clinic prepared a cozy spot for him with them as he underwent a full blood profile, followed by a surgery from which he’s
still recuperating. Along with being neutered, Clark had to have 8 rotting teeth removed. The teeth were so bad, they were
rotten to the roots which was no doubt causing him a great deal of pain. That pain is behind him now, thank goodness.
is now settled into his foster home and enjoying his snoozes and his short walks in between those snoozes. He’s also
loving the food which I’m sure he thinks is being prepared by the top chef of the world, it’s so tasty! I can’t
imagine he’s ever had it this good before.
We’re giving Clark time to recover from surgery and learn
a thing or two about being loved. He’s already had his first few lessons!
Your support makes it possible
for us to bring life and love back to a deserving old beagle boys like Clark. Please keep it coming so we can keep coming
to the rescue of our wonderful and inspirational rescue beagles!
