For those of you not on our mailing list, you might have not heard, so I want to share this important update here for you as well.
I want to thank you for all of your continued support and loyalty. You all have been amazing to stick with us through the last 14 months of restrictions, business changes and lockdowns.
For many years, Beagle Bed & Breakfast has been my dream job/business to work with dogs, provide a happy, care-free, and secure place for dogs of all sizes, shapes, breeds, and types to play and stay. You all and your dogs have been an extended family to me and it breaks my heart to share that we will be closing our doors by the end of 2021.
The pandemic hit our business extremely hard, like so many other small businesses. I have hung on as long as humanly possible, not wanting to disappoint the dogs and their families, through 14+months of restrictions, lockdowns, and travel restrictions that affected our occupancy horribly. I sadly don't have energy left to hang on any longer.
I want to thank you all for all of your support and donations to help keep us going as long as we have. We couldn't have gotten this far without you.
The photo attached provides additional detail about the changes to our services.
So many of you have reached out to me asking what you can do to help. I appreciate your kindness and generosity more than you know. This decision was extremely difficult to make. I ask that you grieve with me that we will be closing, but respect my decision without asking for additional explanations.
As many of you know, I have started a Dog and Family Photography business in addition to Beagle Bed & Breakfast during the past year to help make ends meet. I would love your support as I build that business as my new venture. I will still be able to work with all the wonderful dogs and their families, just in a different way.

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for supporting us through the years, please give all your doggies kisses from me, and I am looking forward to seeing as many as possible through the end of 2021 for Overnight Boarding reservations and hopefully as new clients for photographs!
