I cannot help but respond to your delightful story, “My Dog Let Me Down,” [May/June issue] about the beagle named Beans. We have owned several [beagles] and know how intelligent they are.
One day my husband and Becky [our beagle] went for a walk. When they got to the corn field, he let her run, then “lost” her. He walked home to get the car to look for her, but when he arrived home, she was already there, sitting under the tree in our front yard, waiting for him.
