I found this photo of Cricket and Kobi when looking for photos for a post recently, and it struck me how different the two of them were. Kobi was laid back, easygoing, scared of nothing. He loved everyone he met. Cricket is high energy, high strung, and often shy and fearful. Kobi never had any interest in playing fetch or going in the water, and Cricket is obsessed with her ball, and loves the water. They do/did have the same beagle colors (tri-colored), and of course, being beagles are/were driven by their noses and the desire for food and treats. Kobi would eat pretty much anything, fruit or vegetable, but Cricket is finicky and will eat very few fruits or vegetables.
One thing they both loved equally was a good walk, and they went on lots of them together. I’m sure Cricket is going to miss those walks with her beagle brother as much as I will. Hopefully she will be able to carry on the tradition with her other siblings, and her beagle cousins, this spring!
