Savage Hunting Beagles? Isn't that the new Nic Cage movie?


aw, that aint nothin' but a hound dog

*snork* @ stevie!

LTNS - How's it going???

'Those terrorist bastards: 1st bagels, & now...'

Is that little beagle in the picture wearing a leather jacket? You can tell a beagle has turned when he has tattoos and smokes little camel cigarettes.

Hmmm...anyone seen him???

The Plight of the Wild Beagles

Unfortunately, I can't find much funny here. People who abandon their pets (or companions) should magically feel everything the animal goes through.
Sorry to dampen the mood.
Due to circumstances beyond her control, we are taking care of our daughter's dogs temporarily. The older one is an OCD mess but he is very good natured and loving. I can't imagine turning him out. He just wouldn't understand that. Or much of anything else, come to think of it.

My sister's Beagle (Rex) is a little excitable, but nothing like these bad boys.

Steve, I have 3 dogs and a cat. All are rescues and I also cannot understand how anyone could mistreat any animal. But, sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. Every animal I have ever had, except for one, has been a rescue. I was selected to be my cat's owner by her about 6 months ago. She was standing on the side of the road and was only about 5-6 weeks old. She saw me, ran over, meowed and demanded I pick her up. I did and now she is my baby. My very spoiled baby.

Cindy, same here. Both dogs (16 and 8) and cat (2) are rescues. Every animal I've owned I've either rescued or adopted or they've adopted me...you get the picture. I have "SUCKER" written all over and the smart animals know it. They're all very loved and spoiled ;P

I understand there are some pythons and anacondae looking for a good meal home, right in your area, Siouxie.....

Seriously ... abandoning pets (or even animals used solely as "employees", like hunting dogs) is a miserable, cruel and cowardly thing to do.

I have had hunting dogs, herding dogs, and mutts. They all lived in the house, ate before I ate, and when the time came, I was standing with them when they were put down.

None of them were "employees", they were partners. (In some cases they have been "the boss".)

I know people who consider their working dogs like employees, but I have never known any of them to dump them.

There is a "special place in hell" for those who do.

I agree with snarky and mtb 100%. And Siouxie, I yelled at my dogs one day that this was my house and I wanted everybody to sit down. They all looked at me like I was crazy. I know what they were thinking. "Her house? She really thinks that?" My pups and cat get fed everyday before I eat and they all have their own beds and blankets. They also have more toys than I ever had as a kid.

That just makes me sad. I am a real beaglehead. Our beagle, Jack Bauer, is also a pound pup. He was named by my daughter. Unlike his namesake he is the quietest most laidback dog I have ever seen. I think his previous owner tried to train him to hunt only to find he is gunshy and took him to the pound.

Now, a savage beagle is he perfect pet for the "real" Jack Bauer.

"t" for the.

some owners just cannot be trained

(and noone 'trains' jack bauer)

Awww poor beagles. It's interesting that her larger dogs were scared. I remember taking a Golden Retriever for a walk (he was a big, friendly laid back sweetheart of a dog), and a tiny scrap of a dog challenged him. The Golden Retriever was more then ready to take him on and probably would have if I hadn't interferred. But maybe the case with the beagles was the domestic dogs having an instinctive fear that might protect them against rabies. And I alwo know of a Shepherd mix who let a daschand (sp?) bite him without retaliating.

I have 2 cats, one from the Humane Society and one a "giveaway" kitten (someone I knew had a cat with kittens). I don't understand why people dump animals. It's cruel. Most domestic animals, including cats, can't deal well with living in the wild.

My parents rescued a male Siamese. He paid it back. I believe my father would have died years earlier if it hadn't been for that cat caring for him.
Kindness pays with unexpected benefits.

Steve, you got that right.

I went to college with some beastly hounds from Long Island. No wonder the other dogs were frightened.

Extreme Peanuts!
