It is with a heavy heart that I announce my wonderful Daddy, Buck Sasnett passed away on Sept. 18, 2013. He was the greatest father in the world. He loved the Lord with all his heart and "walked the walked". He also loved nature and his Beagles and will be missed tremendously. I know he is happy walking the streets of Gold and I can not wait until I see him again. A special thanks to all that adopted Beagles from him! He really enjoyed sharing them with you guys. We will NO longer be breeding Beagles.
