Last weekend, when I glanced across the room to see Luke at my hubby’s side watching him intently as he ate some licorice, I had an instant flashback that brought a smile to my face. I had seen that pose and look many times before on our beagle Kobi’s face when he was also watching my hubby eat something he loved, and hoping he would share. Kobi loved red licorice amongst other things (we only share small amounts).
I snapped a photo and then later I had to go looking back through old photographs to see if I could find one with Kobi giving that stare. I found not one, but two, beagles giving that look to my hubby, (you can just see him holding a dish of ice cream).
I think the looks are pretty close, don’t you? (Both photos were taken with cell phones in low light conditions, so please excuse the quality.) At times like that, I still find it difficult to believe that there is no beagle in Luke’s DNA. He’ll always be an honorary beagle to us, whenever he brings back fond memories of our beloved Kobi!
