Maria (Cookie-Thomas pup) is visiting with us while Lesley and David are away. On her 1st day, we went to the Monroe show to watch Maria's dad, Thomas, in the ring. Thomas won the beagle group and then placed 3rd in the Hound Group. And what a nice surprise for Jo and I - Roo (now Jack (Abba-Jazz puppy) was there as well with his family. Jack has grown into a handsome young beagle and will be starting his show career in January 2010.
