TUPELO – It’s been almost two years since we added Chipper to the family, a decision made with no small amount of thought.
The idea of a puppy sounds really good, but the idea of puppy maintenance – and to whom those responsibilities would fall – gave the home’s more seasoned residents some reservations.
That’s water under the bridge now. Chipper’s been a great addition, though his taste for the nearest television remote has been frustrating at times.
A beagle mix, he has given the family a great deal of affection, and I’d have a hard time seeing him in a puppy mill. I’d also have a hard time seeing him in Michael Vick’s dog fighting ring.
