Love and a Beagle

So, I met a lady at PetCo who had a fluffy dog in tow and saw our beagle.  "Awww" she said, "I have one of those old girls at home".   Then she said,  "I'm not sure I want to do the Beagle thing again".  Which gave me paws....!  To which she responded to herself, "yeh, I'm gonna do it again".  Beagles are surely special.  They have their own way, and they are sooooo sweet.  I know there are other very sweet breeds out there too.  They all have so much love to give. 

Errant Beagle

Like most beagles, ours watches for the door to be open so that he can take his trip around the neighborhood, sniffing at this and that and marking just about everything vertical.   Who knows what makes beagles tick.  If dogs are one species, they sure are varied.  The personalities are so different.  Just like human beings.  We come in all different shapes and sizes and personalities too.  Does every species?  Interesting to contemplate.

To Kennel or not to Kennel

We are considering putting our beagle into a kennel while we're away for 12 days.  I hope he is happy there.  I suppose he'll bay the whole time.  He is very attached to me, but we have to go.  Thought of having someone stay with him.  Anyone have an opinion?
