Someone is Having A Birthday!

This little goofball, our little Percy-Pie is five years old today. Five! He still acts so much like a puppy that it’s hard to imagine he’s already 5. 

He's Celebrating big Time

But, yep. Born June 4, 2011 and kept at a research laboratory in Northern California for god only knows what horrific reason until December 11, 2012 when Beagle Freedom Project rescued him and ten others.

Then he spent four months with his foster mom Vanessa, until we adopted him in April, 2013.He’s been free and happy longer than he was caged and victimized, and I can honestly say he is one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever known. He’s appeared on television twice, done numerous book signing events, helped raise thousands of dollars for Beagle Freedom Project, traveled throughout California on book tour, and, basically, charmed the world. 😉10734037_945534762125066_5441354002326305188_n10612934_945534795458396_1286875810541149951_n

He looooooves pretty much everyone he meets, and he’s clearly never met a stranger.

He’ll climb in your lap, sit on your feet, paw at your leg to pick him up and pet him,kiss your face and wiggle his whole body at you, and that’s just the first three minutes he meets you. But, if Chris is nearby, all bets are off– his full attention will be on Chris, the love of his life.

We couldn’t be happier he (and Vanessa!) chose us as his family. If forced to, Daphne will even agree with that. He’s her annoying little brother but (secretly) she loves him too. wine shop scream

Join us in wishing him the happiest of birthdays! “Percival Taco, Percival Taco, Little Beagle In our Bed.” 

This is his serious look. Which basically only happens when there is a camera around.
