|Oh man, the skinny police.. I've had people tell me both my dogs are too skinny. Ria is a PUPPY first of all and has yet to fill out, secondly, she's not going to get fat with how much she RUNS. Secondly, Charlie is extremely fit and GAINING weight in his old, lazy age(was about 25lbs last time he saw his vet, now about 28 and sitting). That said, my Vet took one look at Charlie, and asked "What are you doing with him?" I asked what he meant. He said Charlie is the ONLY Beagle he's had come in to see him that was of ideal weight.
On another note, people are SHOCKED that my intact Beagle doesn't hump, doesn't mark, and isn't aggressive.
I've had a lady downtown, while I was walking Charlie, look at me and say, "Is he purebred? He's wayyy too good to be pure Beagle!" Sorry honey, he's purebred. It took SEVERAL YEARS to get him so good, lol!
I still can't believe the one so-called dog trainer that thinks Beagles are dumb cause she couldn't get one to stop lifting his front leg when he sat, and couldn't get him to stop pointing. When she called Beagles 'dumb Jack Russels', I smiled politely, looked at her and said, "So THAT explains why he knows over forty different commands!" She was shocked to say the least. Shocked that I had trained a Beagle so well and even further shocked that I had dared to talk back to her like that. My fiance just kept his mouth shut, with a knowing grin on his face.
