You have a sweet little puppy! Have you got a name for him yet?

Does he look like you?

I'm making no comment about his genitalia.

Hey, he's cute! Good thing, too, 'cause he'll be peeing on your rugs and eating up your furniture in no time! :biglol:

& Dawg, puppies are a great warmup for having kids, btw.... ;)

He's a Beagle. He's only 3.5 weeks there, so he still looks like some sort of rodent.

He'll fill in and become a majestic animal, eating my hot dogs when i'm not looking and humping the throw pillows.

It sorta brings a tear to my eye... :eek:

Still no name. We're thinking of Winston or Buckley. I tried Kool Mo Dee, but that was shot down.

My female lab is the nicest, most non-aggressive animal on the planet. - except when it comes to food.

Nothing and I mean nothing can be left on the countertops overnight. A pizza slice, cookie - not even a three pound lobster.

It's all fair game...yes the animal has Amazing Climbing Powers.

I think she came equipped with the Optional Kitchen Counter Food Cleanup Package.

Would not have guessed a beagle, I'm sure it's the age. You're gonna be busy, they have huge amount of energy.

I'm sure you already know this but if not, get a crate and use it. We didn't do this with our first golden because we thought it was mean. We learned our lesson and crated the second and it was easier for everyone, including the dog.

Bravo:
I don't how, but we did mangaged to train our goldens to stay off the counter. It's funny to watch really, they'll just stand there and stiff and cry but not reach up to take anything. If anything hits the though you better get out of the way.

Watch out beagles are realy hardheaded dogs. I have been around them all my life and if you dont have a big yard or somwhere to take him look out they are wild. When she was a pupp she would chew on my bed, i went and got this shit called bitter lime to stop her but she licked it all off lol. She got hit by a bus 3 months ago and had to be putt down. So i went out and got a GD cat.

This is the third Beagle in our family. I've had one, and so does my brother right now. Great dogs. And yes, their noses get the best of them sometimes.

We have 3 goldens in the family too. Bazil, he likes to swim in my Dad's pool. Don't worry, he climbs out using the ladder like one normally would. :)

When Baz was a pup, he had a good Valentine's day. My grandmother always bakes each household a red valentines cake. My dad was wiping down the counter one day after dinner and was holding the cake in one hand while the phone rang. For some reason, without thinking, he set the cake down on a chair near the kitchen table. He went on with his conversation in the other room as he would any day of the week.

Apon returning, the plate was licked clean, yet there was no dog to be seen.

Dad says to me in the living room "Uh, so the dog ate the whole valentines cake."

Me: "Uh, is that good for a dog?"

Dad:"I guess we'll find out."

My brother came home from work and we sat around the living room watching some hockey. Little Baz comes bounding into the living room just loving life. Then the hoarking noises start. My brother wide eyes me just as it all comes up.....in one huge dog vomit loaf of red cake. Unknown to my brother, of course. He looks down and start screaming at both my Dad and I "Who's been feeding the dog raw meat?"

Dad and I laughed and laughed. I wish I would have had a picture of my bro cleaning up that vom. Baz just sat there with this "I'm REALLY sorry" look on his face.

Kudos to bro then. My siberian husky always gets into trouble, but doesn't know the "I'm REALLY sorry" look.

Goldens are born knowing that look because they need it so often.

My brother is five years older than me. He got married when he was 20 and graduated from college when he was 21. He bought a house nearby and had the biggest lab I have ever seen: Gus weighed in at 120 lbs. Beautifull yellow lab.

At the time, I was sixteen and my buddies and I usually went over to his house for a few brews in the backyard.

Gus was out there with us and we started pouring the last ounce of beer in each can (and the suds) into Gus' water bowl. He lapped it all up. He was having a great time.

About two hours later, Gus started weaving as he walked....kind of stumbling from side to side like Otis on the Andy Griffith Show.

Then he sat down in classic dog sitting position. I called him and his front legs started going but his back ones stayed on the ground. I think the beer somehow turned off his back legs.

It was a scream...his front legs pulling him over to where I was standing with the back ones dragging the ground.

Needless to say, we stopped pouring beer in his bowl at that point.

My brother called the next morning and wore me out. Gus pukked all night.

He never wanted another beer again.

Ya, we've had good luck with dogs. All of them have been really, really intelligent.

Bro's beagle has epilepsy, which sucks, but she's on meds and attacks are less frequent now, maybe once every 6 months.

But other that that, we've been lucky in terms of health, obedience and dog pound. We had a little poodle terrier named Nick that used to be good friends with the Dog Catcher. He'd head out cruising the neighbourhood (checking both ways when crossing the street, no lie) and peeing on this and that. Then some old nat would call the pound and James would grab Nick and bring him home, just a smilin' away....The whole neighbourhood loved Nick, except a few old people with too much time on their hands.

We had an Dachshund/Sheltie cross too that got hit by a car. That was tough, she was an oustanding animal.

Hehe....this just came to my head thinking about Nick....we used to have dwarf rabbits too, about 15 of them. Nick used to sleep with the rabbits in the basement because they were so warm. Or maybe because he used to eat their shit. Either way, he was a great dog.
