And I want a hot, red-headed Russian wife that only knows "choice" English words, cooks all sorts of good treats, and has the ability to put her ankles behind her head. And y'know what? It ain't happenin!!


... well, okay, it could, but you have to pony up the money man. That's how the system works.

My best friend had a beagle forever, and it was the only dog that didn't bark at me when I walked down the block. It was super friendly, and was the dog that convinced me that I shouldn't be afraid of dogs. It was awesome.

In closing, get yourself a beagle.

Absolutely.

My beagle is 100% incapable of malice. She just doesn't have it in her. She's the sweetest thing I have ever met.

Oh how cute how long have you had the pup and what it's name?

Her name is Checkers. I got her at 5 months old in 2002.

She moved across the country from MD (where that picture was taken) to Seattle last year, and she's made the adjustment from outside dog (with a big yard to run around in) to inside dog (in a small apartment, on leashed walks) very well.

She also developed a nasty skin condition when we got here some kind of allergy that we haven't been able to pin down yet. But that's not a breed thing, that's just her.

They're wonderful little dogs. But I do believe they need a lot of exercise.

Well, mine's not a purebred (she has a bit of basset hound in her, I think), but she's taken to being a slothful inside dog pretty well.

Sounds like a basset trait. My girlfriend wants one of them so bad, and I must say, I've grown attached to the idea of owning one as well.

i've always been a kitty man, but i do really want to own a beagle one day. i wish i could be more creative than calling him "Snoopy," but the temptation would be so strong.

That's it, I'm getting a beagle. I already have a Golden Retriever, but I want one I can carry.

I always said she was a walking ad for the breed.

I need an energetic dog again. Red is so lazy nowadays:(


Does anyone else have a problem where the dog barks at absolutely everyone outside the house, but is completely friendly as soon as they come in?

I have a beagle. She is very old(15). She is an awesome old dog. She just lounges and stares at you unless you are in the kitchen making food then she will follow you everywhere until you are done eating.

One word of warning; beagles are tough little fuckers who laugh at Invisible Fences. So if you need to keep 'em on your property, you have to have a real fence.

I thought my buddy who has two was full of crap when he told me that, but a quick google search confirms it.

My brother just got a puggle, which is some sort of filthy mutant beagle. He's a really sweet little puppy. Cute too.

Yeah, Beagles are great and super-friendly. I had one growing up. We named him Copper after the Fox & The Hound.

I'd take Ringo, he is probably easier to deal with than Paul.

Oh wait, you wrote "Beagle", never mind...

Also, given the chance, beagles will literally eat themselves to death. So, keep them on a steady feeding schedule of manageable portions.

Ours was a show beagle bought from someone who didn't have the papers. He patrolled his back yard with a never-tired nose, and he bayed at any scent the wind blew his way. He was a total whore for affection, but he barked at strangers until he inspected them. He loved to run. Even in the middle of fetching, he would zip around at full speed just for the fun of running, then go back to fetching. He loved playing tug of war, and he once won a fight with a doberman. Also he cornered a possum despite getting bad scratches on his nose and ears.

He was my only dog. He set too high a standard for another dog to follow.
