My beagle/husky mix just passed away this last wednesday (9/5/12. She was the best dog I have ever owned. I have 6 children and I also run a daycare. She treated my kids as her own and would even do crazy things like follow them INTO school, she went swimming with them in the public pool, tried jumping into the drive thru window at McD's where our oldest son worked, went camping with us and treed the coons, she would follow our mailman on his route, visit with the autobody shop guys up tphe road. She was a dog that loved to run and that was really our only problem with her. She had figured out how to open our door and would get out and it was usually just to check on her kids, or visit the neighbors. Everybody loved her and our whole town knew her. So, not surprisingly, one morning, last wednesday when she got out, she got hit by a car. I have never been so devestated in my whole life. She had helped me thru one of the roughest years of my life emotionally and would talk to me everyday, yes, actually talk. She would howl and bark her lingo and I was acustomed to actually know which bark meant she wanted out, to eat, play and so on. We were very close. She was the best companion and slept with me every night from the day I brought her home. Even tho it is still early, I most definitely want the same breed when we decide to get another dog. The problem is, it's such a rare breed, it's usually just a fluke when they are created. These dogs are very high maintenance, and need daily training, but are the most loveable, loyal, beautiful dogs you could ever own. I know the mistakes I made now with my Peaches, so that I would train early the next one. This breed fits perfectly into our highly active lifestyle. Does anyone know what might be the easiest way to find another dog of this breed? The blue eyes are also a must. Thay are completely mesmerizing. I know there will not be any dog that will "compare" to my Peaches and I could never replace her, but the empty void is almost too much to handle. If anyone can help, please let me know.
The issue is that any specific mixed breed dog is hard to duplicate. Most mixed breeds are an accident (or so I hope) and have to be sought to find. A beagle mix is a very common breed that gets mixed though, as is a lab or sheperd. My suggestion would be to go to petfinder.com and look there. It will show you all the dogs in your area of shelters or pounds that are in need of homes. You can type in specific breeds, etc. You may luck out and find the same mix, but if blue eyes are a must, then there are few breeds that carry that trait specifically. You may want to just search Husky or husky mixes and see what comes up.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
