Hail the Beagle



Behold Uno the Beagle (pic on top). What a cutie. He is much lighter in color than our Beagle Lizzie (next pic).

From Yahoo: His tri-colored image certainly drew a nationwide following, and that will surely prompt a spike in beagle adoptions. Wilkerson had one bit of advice for anyone planning to get one as a pet.
"Better have a fence," he said.
Again - if you get a Beagle, plan on having a fenced backyard ( a very good fence) and/or NEVER taking the dog off of their leash. They do not listen - they are RULED by their nose. They will sniff their way pretty much anywhere. Our Beagle Lizzie has gotten away from us a million times. When Lizzie goes to a dog park she really isn't interested in the other dogs, she just wants to sniff around or be pet by any human. As a puppy she chewed EVERYTHING. Shoes, glasses, sunglasses, dolls, CDs, remotes, furniture, SHOES. Beagle puppies are the cutest things ever - but make sure you research the breed before you run out and get one.

Thatr is a damn cute Beagal, of course, after my cat puked on my couch today, a dog doesn't look half bad......

I'd say that I am more of a dog person than cat. We've had some great cats - our cat Sammy (died about a year or so ago) was the best cat ever. And dogs are A LOT more work but yes, am a dog person.

I have a 100 lb Flat-Coated retriever who still thinks he's a pup. It's the nature of the breed, I'm told. It's kind of like having a 100 lb Beagle.

I had a total of 11 dogs in my life....love dogs, but about 6 years ago I bought a cat for my mom (my ex's idea)....

Little did I know her and my stepdad decided to go to Hawaii and I was stuck with Cleo.....

Wouldn't part with her for nothing now....

Yes, pets are the best. I prefer them to most humans. No matter what my dog Lizzie is always thrilled to see me.
