I can relate to that, Dawg
The neighbors behind our first house had beagles; raised a litter, too. Ended up keeping three of the four from the litter because they didn't try too hard to sell them. I think it was love.
Anyway, "Cupcake" was a small female and didn't say much. Neither did her Mom. However, "the Lads" were singers. Rather dis-harmoniously, too. But the human neighbors were great. All I had to do was call and say "Guess what?" and she's say "oops, dogs must be barking, huh"? They were used to it - I never have been able to ignore a barking dog.
Anyway, one call and the Lads were back in the house. Harmony restored.
