About Us
Mike, the Dog of the Day
Name: Mike
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Breed: Lemon Beagle
Home: Cheriton, Virginia, USA
   Mike is a loving companion which replaced another black & white beagle who died on a Sunday night with heartworms. We said that we would not get another pet. However, we missed her so greatly we decided that, with no children now living at home, we needed another pet to give our love and attention to.

    One bright afternoon the chairman of our deacons came to visit us with a six-week-old puppy (Mike) under his arm as a gift to us. We fell in love with Mike and he has been a great comfort and blessing to our house. He has learned to do several tricks. His favorite thing to do is to play with his ball. He does this for hours at a time until he becomes exhausted. He even sleeps with his ball, as a child would with a blanket.

    Almost every afternoon at 4:30 P.M. Mike and his master watch WishBone on TV.
