Rabbit hunting and eating

Roscoe being in his face, Nemo being in his face, taking things from him, when hunting season is over, and being left alone

Favorite Toy:
JR has a stuffed lamb that we call "lamby" and when he is left alone, he does a horrible cry (it sounds like a dieing coyote) while carrying it around the house in his mouth. Then he'll hide it. He also likes his stuffed "Beary"

Favorite Food:
Anything and everything (except black jelly beans)

Favorite Walk:
rabbit and cat hunting around the barns

Best Tricks:
Sitting, begging for food, eating and sleeping

Arrival Story:
Maggie (his mother, and a hunting beagle) got in an accidental tie with West (a hunting beagle also,adopted as a stray) and ended up having 12 puppies. She had mastitis (which is poison of the milk) and all the puppies started dieing off rapidly. She was rushed to the vet, including JR but he was the only survivor. He was bottle-fed and hand raised.

JR (prounounced Jay- Are) not Junior, is a VERY large and very sweet beagle. His mother is a bob-tail benchlegged beagle, and West was picked up as a stray & has seizures. Both his parents are hunting beagleys who live with him in the family. JR is an excellent rabbit hunter, and though he is a "little" big and wobbly, he keeps up well with the others and has a excellent treeing bawl. About a year ago JR was diagnosed with Edisons disease It's where the body doesn't produce Potassium, and because of this his organs began to shut down. JR must recieve a 125$ shot every 25 days just to keep him alive. Edison's disease is also why his fur is grey. Unfortunately, like Roscoe, JR has severe arthiritis in his hips. JR spends a lot of time sleeping. He is a very large boy, bigger than both his parents & Roscoe combined.
