Mom meets Beau

Joey and Katie are fostering a rescued beagle named Beauregard. We always had a dog growing up. First a weimaraner named Heidi, then a chocolate lab named Maggie. I remember my mom’s millions of lectures about having a family dog means everyone in the family is responsible for taking the dog for a walk, cleaning up dog poop from the yard, feeding the dog, and so on and so on. I wondered how mom would respond to having Beau around. As you can see from the video, it was a great meeting. The point where we try to all cram into the car at the end of the video is maybe my favorite video moment to date.

      Thanks Molly. It was so much fun. I’m still not convinced she should be holding that leash unsupervised. She and that dog are not the least bit shy. It’s hard to tell who’s car they would end up in. 🙂

    Hi Joey,
    It has been a long time since we have spoken. It’s Becky (Grow) Gross…how’s that for a name! I somehow stumbled on your blog and just wanted to let you know how touching it is. Being a caregiver is difficult. Your Mom is so blessed to have you and Matt! Take care and know I am praying for all of you!
