I have been wanting a new beagle for a while. A new bloodline that was separate from my own, but a girl whose structure could compliment mine so I could integrate her babies back with mine.
Bory Wood Kennels, run by Ildiko and Levente Koszorus in Romania posted about a litter they had a couple of girls available from. One in particular caught my eye. Her name was Bory Wood Velvet.
We chatted, and somehow it all came together and within 5 weeks, she was on a plane to Washington state. She has integrated into life here well, and will be hitting the showring this Summer.
We have named her “Allie” – in honor of Alyce Gilmore from Bayou Oaks. I have long admired her dogs and the impact her kennel has made on our breed (world wide). She recently passed away from cancer – much too soon – and I wanted Allie to honor her legacy and hopefully make a mark in my kennel the way Alyce did.
