The Happiest, Houndiest, Howlingest Place on Earth!
Usually Disneyland carries the moniker of the Happiest Place on Earth, and well it should. But for one day mid-May in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge, it's handed over to a small, closed-in park where Beaglefest takes place. The fest is a fundraiser/big party/mega-dog park for BREW Beagle Rescue, the wonderful rescue organization where we got our dearly departed Mabel and our present furry baby, Ivy.
Imagine a park where about a hundred and fifty gentle, howling, scampering beagles are all free to roam and play, to sniff, wander and wonder.
It's a kind of heaven on Earth.
Pictured above: our little Ivy, enjoying her own special heaven: peanut butter.
