Named after Jack Frost – personification of frost, ice, snow, sleet, and freezing cold weather, Frost was born on april 7th, 2014 in Latvia.
When puppies are born, the litter is given a certain letter for a name, so for Frost it was the letter “D”. We gave him a second name of Dasher, that is also the name of Santa Claus’s reindeer, just to keep the winter theme. As a typical beagle, Frost’s favourite activities are running, eating and making sure that everyone is his friend. Being a high energy beagle, most of the time he is in motion, participating in marathon runs and canicross races (only 5-10km distances), running beside the bicycle and even a longboard. In fact, Frost is also a show dog and has many titles and experience being in the show ring. It’s safe to say that Frost is not a couch potato and loves to be outdoors.
We are the people behind Frost’s social media – Ray and Ilze. What started as a simple documenting of Frost’s first days with us on instagram, grew into something bigger than we expected it to be, gaining followers quickly, we met a fantastic beagle community that also shared their photos on instagram.
Right now, Frost has a following of 10K people and we are interested to see how far can we take it and what opportunities it can bring to Frost and us. Both being graphic designers, we have made our little beagle community on facebook for people with beagles from Latvia and with help from our closest friends we have been making beagle meetup events during which we encourage people to make donations to help other animals in need and take donations to shelters. Our main goal is to try and help local animal shelters and give Frost the best life that we can.
