Stanze is the mother of 14 baby beagles in two litters of registered puppies. She was bred with some boy named HR Puppystuff, who did the job well. It took Stanze over eight hours to deliver each litter, and she was a great mother to the little tikes. When the puppies were old enough, we sold them for big bucks, but out of each litter we kept one long enough to get attached. In the first litter there was Catherine, who had perfect markings, and in the second litter we kept Wolfie, who was a rambunctious little guy. We eventually had to sell them when things got out of hand - Cheri and I had other pets to take care of, too.
Over a year ago, Stanze was diagnosed with cancer and given two weeks to live. But after trying out a new treatment (with "people" drugs) suggested by a veterinary oncologist, Stanze is still happily begging for all food in sight - a true miracle puppy.
