About the Book
Biography of a Beagle is a tribute to Brandy, a swashbuckling little canine rake that saw life as one grand opportunity for adventure and ´fear´ as the only true obscene four-letter word. As Charles Schultz once wrote, "Happiness is a warm Beagle."
Biography of A Beagle is the winner of the 2001 Dog Writers Association of America Writing Competition best book of fiction award.
