I was only a five year old starting kindergarten when I received Scooby, he was a pup and so was I. Over the course of the next thirteen years of Scooby's life he did multiple things that still make me laugh to this day. He was the only dog I've ever known that could do back flips for the fun of doing them, climb over any obstacle to come see what I was doing without him in the backyard, patiently wait at the kitchen doorway just for the free smells while dinner was being prepared, and jump up to the foot of the bed every night that he was inside. That all being said, beagles aren't always the perfect epitome of the good dog they try to portray themselves as. On multiple occasions Scooby did things such as rip open a package of oatmeal and do laps around the house leaving destruction in his wake, but the good outweighs the bad in my opinion making this the perfect dog for families with small children and beyond.
