The Irish twins
We had just lost our beloved beagle in spring 2006 when a friend wrote to me about a litter of puppies at a shelter outside Dublin. The mother had been rescued from teens who were trying to drown her, and her puppies were born within ten minutes of her arrival at the shelter. The lady who ran the shelter drove a hard bargain: She wouldn't send a lone puppy all the way to Sweden, but she would send two. Three years later, our "twins" are our pride and joy: loving, intelligent and fun. We can't imagine life without them!
