The Hound (name of Lizzie) is a 3 yr old Beagle. While she is a totally spoiled dog, she is a hound dog that is ruled by her nose. She gets usually three walks per day and she has become obsessed with a really cute wild rabbit that lives around us. She flips out trying to get a whiff of the rabbit - the kid has named the rabbit Buster. Once she either smells the rabbit or sees it she goes crazy. She is of course on a leash so either me or the kid must run with her to give her the illusion that she will catch Buster the rabbit. Once she goes into full-on Beagle mode she starts howling, baying, and just about moaning because she wants that rabbit so bad. She is loud and it sounds like she is getting run over by a car - over and over. I can't imagine what the people living around me must think when they hear this crazy dog going crazy. It really sounds painful but she loves every second of it.
