Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement.

The Beagle is a descendent of dogs who came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. The Beagle is a hunting dog - his quarry: the rabbit and hare. Classified as a scenthound, the Beagle has an exceptional nose and uses it very efficiently to track his prey. 

Humourist Dave Barry once described Beagles as "noses with four feet attached". Once his quarry's trail is located, the Beagle gives a distinctive howl to alert the rest of the pack. Gentle in expression and nature, Beagles also shine as therapy dogs.

"Beag" is the Celtic word for small. The Beagle today stands no more than 15 inches tall at the shoulder. He has a short, dense, weather-resistant coat that can be white, black, red, tan, lemon, or any mixture of these colours. A Beagle's diet must be carefully monitored (they will eat anything) to fight a tendency to obesity.

Arguably the most famous dog in the world, Snoopy, is the poster dog for Beagles. His intelligence, humour, and that unmistakable "ARROOOOO" define the Beagle personality. Compact, clean, and cuddly, the Beagle is a fun-loving and amusing pet. He is active, inquisitive and friendly. He gets along well with other dogs and is extremely fond of children. This is the dog to keep up with active kids! Bred to work in packs, the Beagle loves company and should not be left alone for long periods of time. Boredom can turn your Beagle into a nuisance barker. The Beagle also makes a good watchdog as he will alert his owners to any unfamiliar faces.

Intelligent and eager, the Beagle takes well to obedience training. Although the Beagle is an inside dog, he needs lots of outside activity. A tendency to 'follow his nose' can be curbed by ensuring he has a fenced yard in which to romp and play. He should always be leashed when out on a walk. Be aware that Beagles are natural diggers, especially when they are young.
