Beagle of the week: Luna of Beagles and Bargains

Time for our Beagle of the Week! This week, we're talking to Jessica Shipman from Beagles and Bargains about her beagle Luna!

1) How old is Luna? 
She is a rescue dog, so we can only guess. We think she is around 2 years old. We picked her birthday to be March 21, 2011, so she can have a day to celebrate! Any day Luna gets her own pupcake is a perfect day. Those days can only be topped by the days she gets two pupcakes.

2) Where did you get Luna? 
Luna was adopted from the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART), which is a local no-kill animal rescue organization. Her rescue story was published on I Love Dogs not too long ago.

3) How long have you had her? 
Her Gotcha Day is October 13, 2012, so we are just two months short of a year. That doesn't sound like a long time, but Luna is such a huge part of our family that time doesn't matter. October 13 is also my anniversary with my boyfriend, so it is a day full of celebrations!

4) What's her favorite food? 
This dog will eat anything except lettuce. She loves cheese, peanut butter, pumpkin, and anything with meat. Unfortunately she also thinks a balanced diet includes cardboard, a lot of fluff, a Kindle, and recently an entire tissue box.

5) What's her favorite thing to do? 
As a Beagle, her nose is always working, but sniffing is only her second favorite activity. When I see her in true bliss, she is rolling in the grass on a beautiful summer day. Wiggling away, that is her favorite thing to do.

6) What's her favorite toys? 
She loves anything she can chew, so Nylabones can keep her busy for a while. Squeak toys do not have a very long life span with her. As a result, we have lost many.

7) Does she take part in any special activities (i.e. therapy dog, service dog, spokes dog, etc.) ? 
Not formally. She is my personal therapy dog. Nothing makes you feel better than cuddling with your wiggly Beagle. She is also the spokes Beagle for Beagles and Bargains.

8) What's the best part about owning a beagle? 
You don't need to buy a shredder and you always know when a firetruck is coming. I love her Beagle howl!

She is also the most expressive dog I have ever met. I'm not sure if it is a Beagle thing or just a Luna thing, but I always seem to know when she is frustrated, tired or relaxed. I never knew a little dog could say so much with just a few sighs.

9) What's the worst? 
Your house always seems to be covered in fluff. Always. It is a never ending cycle. Beagles also shed. A lot. Way more than I thought a short haired dog could.

I have also had to learn some crafty ways to hide food and defend my dinner. A hungry Beagle will find food if left unattended and Beagles are always hungry.

10) Anything you'd like to add?
Follow Luna and I at for pet deals, product reviews, and pet parenting tips. You can also find us on Facebook (, Twitter (@beaglesbargains), and Instagram (@beaglesbargains)! 

Also, every Beagle deserves a forever home, so please share the Beagles who are still looking for loving homes!

And speaking of which -- here's this week's beagles who need rescue!

We're checking out beagles from Hillsborough County Animal Services in Tampa.

They have two beagles -- Adria and Smokey Dog.

Adria -- A156-4220
Smokey Dog -- A1564204
 Adria is a girl, and Smokey Dog is male. There's no more info other than the fact that they are adult dogs, and they are fixed.

Please help by sharing this post. Hopefully we will find homes for these beagles.
