Spring 2017


Welcome to the Fall 2017 issue!

Our cover story is about Bogart. When you meet Bogart, you meet a cool as a cucumber beagle living the lush life with a brother named Boots and humans who just can’t stop kissing him. He loves it; don’t let him tell you any different. He will work for treats, but anything else … well, he’ll think about it while he snoozes on his favorite blanket. On the couch, of course.
It’s hard to believe that Bogart had any other life before this one, but he did. His name was 5989418 and he was a laboratory research beagle. Bred specifically to be sold to a research lab, Bogart lived his entire life in a cage, never walking on grass, never feeling sunlight on his face, never experiencing the loving touch of a human companion.
