What To Do About Cookie?

I have been trying to figure out what to do about our dog, Cookie. She is a very friendly, extremely cute little pure-bred beagle, and we love her, but it's not clear that we are able to take care of her properly now. Kevin used to be home during the day, and he would take her out on walks multiple times a day, pay attention to her during the day, etc. Over the summer, the kids were here while I was at work, but now the kids are all at school, and Cookie ends up alone here all day. She can't make it through the day without having accidents in the house, which is a big problem because the older kids often get home before I do and they have to deal with it. Cookie isn't eating as well as she used to, either.

So, what should we do about this? She'd probably be better off in a home where someone could be home with her during day, but how would I find her a new home? I wouldn't want her to end up at the pound, or without a family.

Thoughts?
