Love is a Beagle Hug + Jim Shore Giveaway

Last night I participated in a discussion with some fellow dog moms about our furbabies and swapped stories about their personalities, how spoiled they are, etc. But what it ultimately came down to was how much we love our pups.

It’s no secret that my beagle-mix, Sheba, is my best bud. I adopted/rescued her just over four years ago and while it was totally unplanned, it’s definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! You can read why here.

Another beloved beagle in my life? Snoopy! While I’ve learned quite a bit from my own pup, Snoopy has been around for decades, bestowing his life wisdom upon us and will be for more to come. We can all certainly learn a little something from Snoopy!

Beagle Hugs


To celebrate all things May, I have a fun giveaway for you! One lucky reader (open to U.S. and Canada residents) will win this adorable “Love Is a Beagle Hug” figurine by Jim Shore. The piece stands 7 inches tall, is made of stone resin, and each one is individually hand-painted, meaning every figurine is unique.

Good luck—and “May” the Snoopy force be with you!
