Beagles See Sun and Grass for the First Time After Life in a Lab
This breaks my heart but at the same time beautiful to see these dogs free to enjoy what is left of their lives after years of abuse. In labs, rows of beagle dogs are trussed up and masked, and each compelled to smoke up to 30 cigarettes a day. Some of the dogs go on smoking for up to three years. Then they are killed. All, of course, in the name of research. Testing is also done extensively on beagles in university and other research facilities including medical/pharmaceutical, household products and cosmetics.
Beagles are the most popular breed for lab use because of their friendly, docile, trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities. The research industry says they adapt well to living in a cage, and are inexpensive to feed. Research beagles are usually obtained directly from commercial breeders who specifically breed dogs to sell to scientific institutions.

I like to encourage folks to consider bringing love into an innocent animal's life. I also like to expose objectionable or activity or that which can stand improvement in the name of science.
I include this image as symbolic of different phases in our lives.
I hope you realised my "oh boy" wasn't a criticism, I was just moved...
No more using animals as test subjects!!! They are living creatures not "things". This breaks my heart and soul. Thankful for the beagle freedom project.
THANK YOU Sir Blunt, I suffered so many different emotions watching this!!
I figured, Flake, and I agree with your response. In the case of this posting my feelings are strong due to my sensitivity to the feelings of the innocent (all non-human forms of life are innocent; of which, imho, dogs are the most human-like), mixed with the fact that I'm recently thinking of adopting another dog. My boy Bo, whom I had to have put to sleep in November, was a Beagle mix. I've been looking at Beagles at adoption websites, but am finding that I suspect I'm looking for Bo; which means that adoption should be postponed for the time being, because when I do adopt, in order to be fair to him or her, I must be fully prepared to accept into my life a new dog.
Also, I'm grateful to be able to post things that may encourage others to rescue animals from the evils in this world, to deliver them from abuse, neglect, and pain into love.
I'm sorry if you suffered. I thought I'd post a happy-ending encouragement, but forgot.
NO, no, very, very scary in the beginning dog seemed to have been abandoned and then he looked from below just like what a shark hunts for and then the wonderful dolphin knocking that ol' shark away and slipping under the dog to ride him back to his boat. Real life drama there! YEA!!!!!!
Want to join my (as yet imaginary) Kid and Dog Sanctuary? So many of both are abused, neglected, or plain unloved. Breaks my heart. I want to Mama them all.
I think I'm already a charter member. I was just thinking this morning, as I considered my cats, that while I figure three is maybe one two many, that were someone to need to find a home for a stray or one whom no one could care for anymore, I'd end up saying, "Sure". There were eight cats in this house at one point; four of them my own, the rest indefinitely boarding.
