My beagle-coyote lookalike quickly makes friends with humans, especially those with treats.
It began with her baying “oooh” for “food” after prompts from me. Human friends responded generously.
Now, she’s added talking. Are you a beagle mix? “Woof.” Are you a snack slut? “Woof.” Sometimes she doesn’t even wait for the question. All for handouts.
Initially, I was embarrassed.
Then I noticed that whenever we’re near, Jesse’s human friends smile and call her over.
Another life lesson learned.
Sometimes the gift is in the giving.
