Item Description...
Describes the author's relationship with an abandoned beagle who resisted all human advances for months before learning to trust again, and who became over the course of fifteen years a source of unconditional love and inspiration. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
A touching and humorous account of the author's fifteen years with her beagle, Bea, a refugee from an animal research laboratory.

Harried by recent upheavals in her life, the last thing Kristin von Kreisler needed was another dog. But when she came upon Bea, a scrawny beagle abandoned by the roadside, she couldn't turn away. Bea became part of her family, and changed it forever.

Disheveled, malnourished, and terrified of human contact, Bea seemed damaged beyond repair. But, gradually, she began to trust von Kreisler. After resisting her touch again and again, the dog one day leaned in and nuzzled her neck. From that moment, Bea began to give love as well as receive it. With the typically unforgettable personality of a beagle, over the next decade and a half she taught von Kreisler the value of living utterly in the present, of meeting each day with a good bark, and of moving forward in life without being dragged down by past grief.

Written with rare eloquence and down-to-earth wit, this memoir of Bea and von Kreisler's fifteen-year love story will charm "beaglers" and touch the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog.

For Bea  Dec 13, 2008
I enjoyed this book so much. What a wonderful story of determined love and devotion. We can all learn something about relationships in this book.
Loved this book  Jun 17, 2008
I just finished reading 'For Bea' and I loved it. Having a beagle of my own, Sam, I can relate to the very special nature of these dogs. Bea's story gives you hope and Von Kreisler is a credit to the human race. She and Bea were lucky to have had each other. It's a beautiful and heartwarming story, I hope many people read this book and realize how cruel and useless animal testing is.
For Bea  Jul 22, 2007
This was a true story about a beagle that began her life in a research laboratory. I have adopted two such beagles and could relate to Bea's owner. The book is well written and very moving.
If you need to cheer up, or get some hope, this is the book  Nov 5, 2006
This book is so powerfully moving that every time I pick it up - I must have read parts of it and/or looked at the pictures dozens of times - I get weepy and feel so grateful that in this complicated world, there are still such wonderful examples of kindness and compassion. Bea will become your hero, your touchstone representing hope.
Miracles Do Happen!  Sep 22, 2006
If anything this story conveyed to me how there is another option for abused and rejected animals like Bea. There is the option of giving life to them. The option to not turn away from a hurting animal, because even they seek companionship, stability, and YES, even LOVE. I don't believe Bea would've ever made it past the age of five years if she wasn't found one dark night. She was a 'lab' dog and obviously very much abused. She was traumatized, but the author and her husband took the dog under their wings and after years of emotional rehabilitation, Bea learned to trust again and to enjoy her life.

It is a powerful thing to have the option of saving a life or letting a living thing die frightened, abused and alone. It is so easy to turn away and make excuses as to why you shouldn't reach out your hands to help them. But this book reminded me that we all have the power to give life just as much so as to ignore it. This book is just one precious example of a life saved. This book tells Bea's story.
