The Beagle

Little is known of the origin of the Beagle. Rabbit or hare coursing is said to ha^e been a sport as far back as Grecian times, and it is possible that some type of Beagle was created then. As the breed is known to-day, however, Beagles have been developed in England through crossing early type dogs with the old southern and other hounds. The breed stock in this country has been imported from England and differences in type between English and American Beagles are attributable to the varying factors of climate and management.

Any good hound color is acceptable for Beagles—black, white, and tan, or any two of these colors, hare or badger pied, blue mottled, etc. Individuals are separated into two divisions by heights; (1) 13 inches and under and (2) over 13 inches and not exceeding 15 inches. No weight specifications are set by the standard.

The typical Beagle resembles the Foxhound in miniature, a dog solid and “big” for its size. The body is rather “cobby” with a short, muscular back; broad, deep chest; clean, muscular, sloping shoulders; medium-length neck; rugged, square-set legs; and strong, muscular hind quarters. The ears are of the pendant type and fairly large; the muzzle square-cut, straight, of medium length, and not snipy, with the general head character indicative of a happy but determined worker.

Watch That Doggy Door!

Could you imagine coming home from work to find this tiny creature napping on your couch with your dog? Guess who came home for dinner? It followed this beagle home, right through the doggy door. This happened in Maryland recently. The owner came home to find the visitor had made himself right at home…

AKC Insults Pomeranians!

The American Kennel Club has announced it’s favorite top ten dog breeds for 2007, and unbelievably, Pomeranian dogs were not even in the top ten. This is an insult to Pomeranians everywhere. The American Kennel Club has obviously made some serious error, and I am demanding a recount! Supposedly, they base these numbers on registration of AKC members. Personally, I feel they may have special interest dog lobbyist, I think it is very suspicious that Labrador Retrievers are always getting the top spot. Here is the stupid list:

1. Labrador Retriever

2. Yorkshire Terrier

3. German Shepherd Dog

4. Golden Retriever

5. Beagle

6. Boxer

7. Dachshund

8. Poodle

9. Shih Tzu

10. Bulldog
