Arrival Story: I always scanned the local newspaper's classifieds and read all of the puppy ads. I felt sorry for most of the puppies because most of them had irresponsible breeders. I came upon an ad that read "BEAGLE PUPS- lemon, tricolor, and chocolate! Hunting pups. 6 weeks". I showed the ad to my dad (I was just 14 at the time) and he recognized the number as an old friend. I wanted to see the puppies and so off we went. We drove through a wooded area until we came to a clearing with a small house. There were dogs everywhere. The first thing I saw, before all of the dogs, was a rickety homemade rabbit hutch. There were puppies in it. I ran to the cage as soon as we parked and was horrified at what I saw. The puppies were dirty and very skinny. There were remains of some type of animal in the cage. One puppy in particular stood out. It was the tiniest skinniest one. Her belly was bloated from worms. I coudn't leave her there. The 'breeder' told me that I couldn't have her because she was sick and not gonna live. However, prying a puppy our of a 14 year old girl's arms is not easy. Finally I took my discount ($25 because she was sick) puppy home. After extensive vet care and tlc she made a full recovery. This was the beginning of my best friend, and the greatest dog I'll ever know, Hallie.
Everything is going great here! It's getting cold so mom has to walk me earlier. Mom hasn't spend as much time as usual with me, but I moved to a soft sided crate so I can sleep right beside mom's bed in my big, soft crate. I'm getting all my tricks down fairly well, my stay is exceptional for a rowdy puppy. Mom said I have enormous talent! Lately I have been getting distracted lately, a huge detriment to our training. It's hard because I have just inherited a little furling sister, a CAT! She is always chasing my tail and I've lost my self control a couple times and chased her and mom chastised me for it :(. I'm adjusting to family life perfectly though! Last night I got into mom's paint and left big brown foot prints all up and down the floors :D. Mom didn't mind she just didn't want me to get sick. Guess what? I'm a whopping 20lbs!! Yep TWENTY. How did I get from 2 to twenty so fast? I'm about to hit my first heat and mom is sad to say i'm growing up, mom hates that. I'll still be her big baby though! I've adjusted to my rotation very very well. Nothing can upset my stomach! I have a little skin irritation though, and mom has to bath me in smelly shampoo every other day! It sucks because while I'm getting a dreaded bath my mom (instead of rescuing me) is hovering over me with a camera! See my dephault? mom put my back hair into an mohawk! Well there goes that darn kitten I feel as though I must chase it!
Ok so mom's dad runs a mini sactuary. Well I'm UTD on shots so mom thought she would let me run around with all 14 dogs in the BIGGGG pasture field. Well mom's dad lives far far away and has cows and horses and who knows what, but I felt like I was at the zoo! Beast the lab stepped on me once but I got right back up and kept running And then I encountered the scariest thing of my entire life...a cow. All you pups out there probably thing great danes are big well the biggest great dane doesn't have anything on a cow. These things are huge!!! and they dont go "moo" they make this loud frightening sound that shake my little beagle feet! Of course I was terrified so I made mom carry me.And then mom noticed I have a deformity on my leg where left leg goes in a little when I run im not in pain and It doesn't affect me at all, mom will mention it next time at the vet.
Also Cow pies are yummy! But watch out becuase when you dig in your human might scream and scrub you with kitty wipes if she sees you!
Well this little beagle has to go get into something
Bark atcha later :0)
Mom said im growing like a weed I've gained two pounds already!!! That means im four pounds and almost 7 weeks.I've been really sick lately and im starting to not act like my beagley self. I had the runs REALLY REALLY bad and there was a trickle of blood also mom freaked out but the vet said it was from me being dewormed and being really wormy! Well I hope I get better
Ill keep you updated
