Rum - love that name
a childhood friend of mine also had a Beagle.
They can be perky, fun little hounds, though they don't think they're little!
No problem, WDYS, I thought everyone would enjoy
ahhh, maybe not the best memories for you - those names - but I was thinking in terms of, the name taken by itself.
Seems I used to see a lot more people with "pet" shep's than I do now.
I can only actually think of two that were regular "customers" of the store where I worked. One was a Black Shepherd, who came in with her goofy 1 year old pittie brother. I always enjoyed seeing both of them.
What color was Gin?
He looked something like this. He had a scar on his nose when we got him. It looked someone whipped the poor dog . He wasn't little a puppy I guess he was about a few months old .
How people be so cruel to lovely dog like that,he happy now
I 'm sure Gin was a beautiful dog, just like the dog in the pic.
Though I can logically state what the excuses might be for abusing, it's still hard to fathom or think about. One of the reasons I liked working in the pet supply shop was that most of the people who came in there really doted on their pets, loved being with them and getting special things for them.
In the U.S. most Beagles are companions, or for the show ring. I did see a tv program about the rare situations here of a few examples of Beagles still working in hunting packs. Most people here who run hounds have any of the Southern hunting hounds <Plott, Coonhhound etc>
Quite appropriate for a Beagle, to have food names
they're not known for being picky.
I couldn't resist showing that vid to my hub. He's not big on Beagles <he likes pitties/bigger dogs and the working breeds> but thought it was pretty funny.
I think they lovely dogs but fox hunters go on about them hunting dogs not pets I sooo disagree as do most of population.It British fox hunting thing
