Miss Christina was proud to see what her son Cody did with a group of other Volunteers from AmeriCorps on a 3 day retreat to Natahalla ... it wasn't about River Rafting , or Hot Tubs, or relaxation .... they went to help others
he works for Boys and Girls Club of America in the schools of Asheville as a mentor in after school programs with underprivileged kids
after having served in Americore helping victims of Hurricane Sandy in NYC.
Miss C is so proud :)
we got this adorable update from the Murray's showing Constance home safe and sound with her new family enjoying their new Beagle Puppy in Myrtle Beach now !
Good morning! Sorry for the delayed response, we’ve been spending all our time enjoying Scarlet! She is just so sweet. Here’s a few photos we’ve taken of her so far:
we had a big day today with 3 of Patience's pups getting adopted !!
Patience's khaki mini girl Pippa aka now known as "Frannie " was adopted today .
her new owner met with our courier in
Augusta Georgia to save her driving to Moultrie so she could make the trip all in a day. We loved seeing these adorable photos Duffy sent us of her new baby content in her
lap on the trip home to Folly Beach South Carolina where she will be treated like a little Princess !
She is happy and doing amazing. No problems with anything....steps, harness, leash walks.
She's fabulous! Duffy in Folly Beach SC
Rare color beagles in Vero Beach Florida ...
Bette Jean sent us this photo of a banner of 3 Sunshine Beagles she made for the Vero Beach Art Club to display in Down town Vero !
it shows her son ( who is a Foreign Diplomat representing the USA abroad) along with his wife's 3 rare color beagles adopted from us.
a Chocolate beagle , orange and white beagle, and most recently adopted silver beagle that are world travelers , they head to new far off countries to represent America and with each foreign soil they live on we bet the locals have never seen our uniquely beautiful purebred beagles in such Gorgeous colors... we are very proud they chose us to adopt their furry family from ours, and continue to stay in touch over the years even sending mementos and coins from far away places to the kids knowing each is interested in learning about the cultures and traveling to see how people around the world differ but are ultimately all the same :) Luckily both Cody and Christi have been fortunate to study abroad and spend time in various countries overseas with their respective Universities and with friends from overseas.
Just finished another painting of the Beagle Point boys. It was my favorite picture to paint. Bette Jean
Bette Jean adopted Pepper years ago from us in North Carolina, and stays in touch sending u-tube videos and , cards made with Pepper doing cute things... she even published a book named B is for beagle for children to learn the alphabet with funny pictures of Pepper posing for each page as she grew up doing funny things that display something relating to the letter of the alphabet..
the above photo she sent after the Westminster Dog Show ... Pepper was very interested in the Hound Group when they were up ...
but not so much when the other Breeds were strutting their stuff lol she captioned Peppers bored... lol !!
Miss Christina and kids feel very fortunate that our love of the breed and 25 plus years working to improve the beagles in our line for House pets has connected us with so so many wonderful individuals who like us have a true love of the Beagle Breed for companions !!
during the Holidays we received this sad email from a family ...
Hello Sunshine Acres!
I am writing to inquire about the possibility of getting on your waiting list for a beagle puppy. I have read a lot about you and got your information from a friend of my sister. They have adopted two beagles from you in the past.
My sister got your information and shared it after we had a heartbreaking experience. We found a puppy that we thought we were going to adopt online and it turned out to be a scam. I was just heartbroken because it was the cutest little puppy and I had already fallen in love with her. Luckily, I have not mentioned it to our boys, so only daddy and I were let down.
poor things after reading this we wanted to help : below is how it all turned out for the family :)
