To the wood shed with you !! (seems like a good swap to me) LOL.

When my Kevin was a baby I said to John my other son "I need to go change Kevin" He said " change him into a frog.."

LOL Z and Marge! You are nuts! I wouldn't trade my little girl for anything in the world! She's my only princess and I'm going to work so hard to get her this dog. She said it was free but something told me that wasn't quite right...LOL She pulled $2 from her pant pockets and said, "I have money, here's my $2."

Thanks for all of your info about beagles. I love dogs and we will be so happy with this new family member.

Our Duncan (usually called Dunky Bum) is half beagle/half peek-a-poo. He is a sweetie-and-a-half! But it is true--I've known a few beagles in my life, and beagles are definitely barkers! I don't know if it is the interesting combination, but Duncan is definitely spring-loaded! He is a bundle of energy! The curled tail is from his peek-a-poo half. Enjoy your beagle Dina! There are actually websites dedicated just to how to train a beagle. Just google.

Incredibly sweet and loving dogs, both. Particularly good with kids.

But they are diggers and runners away, so you need to be very careful to keep them fenced in and/or on a leash. I'd definitely microchip it.

They are obsessed with food.

And they bark and bay. Brewster howls whenever fire trucks go by and he barks and barks at trucks that have low rumbles.

They are a bit hard-headed, one-track mind dogs sometimes (esp. when food is concerned.

I'd do obedience lessons right from the start.
I'm very interested in learning more about the obedience lessons you perform with your dogs. We need all the help we can get to get us ready for our puppy.

Barbara,
Duncan is gorgeous! You must have fun with him.

We got a nice Beagle (free) for my oldest when she was also a pup. He was a sweet and lovable dog, but he did bark...a lot. That's what they do...they flush out rabbits and racoons.
They sure are good with kids, though. I remember one big snow we had, and the kids were sledding down our hill. Happy got out there with them, and showed the kids how to do it "belly down".

Thanks texasgirl. Jumping, running, dancing, you name it! He even gets up on his doghouse like Snoopy!

Thanks Dina. Yes, he is a lot of fun. He is so funny though. There is a stray white dog that hangs out around here (she was dumped nearby a couple years ago and just eats at everyone's houses--she is a sweetie, but extremely skittish). If we put meat or other regular food out for Duncan, he will let her eat first, then he finishes it (if there is anything left!), but if we give him tortillas or bread, he will snap at her and won't let her have any!!!
