Lucy is a Lemon-Color Beagle. She was born January
14, 2012. I bought her at Mt Hope
swap meet in May
of 2012. I bought her from an Amish boy at the
swap meet. He really was not selling her, but, I asked
if he had any other puppies. When he told me no, I asked

more for her, Darla dropped the food in front of Lucy
and waited until Lucy would eat it. She did this
for about 4 times a day for a couple weeks. I
found it to be a little strange, because,
that are "helper foxes" for another young fox

food and toys. I never
seen a fox do this for a dog.
The only problem I had with Lucy is when she would

has ever hurt each other.
