They are gorgeous...thinking of getting one?
I'd love to get another dog mate, but I work 9.5 hour shift and the wife also works, so it wouldn't be fair to leave the dog on its own. But as soon as I retire!!! :)

Yea I'm in the same boat :( We have a cat, and I actually have a pretty flexible working pattern where I work from home every Wednesday and Friday, but I still don't think it's fair on the doggo...

I want one of these...absolutely obsessed with them!

When my wife did her degree, she had to visit a pharmaceuticals lab where they had cages of Beagles, rabbits, mice and rats that were used to test shampoos, eye makeup etc. she said it was horrible. They basical put it in the animals eyes to see what reaction it causes!!! :blink: As an animal lover it really upset her and she didn't go into great detail.

Doesn't bear thinking about really...

I worked/still do some work in the pharmacy industry and have visited many of the extravagant HQ's, which include lab testing facilities. I've never gone in them though....

A bit like the meat industry, I sort of accept some animal suffering for drug development as part of the 'greater good'...(jesus I feel horrible writing that out...), but hope that they are treated as well has humanly possible and with the dignity they deserve.

However, I absolutely do not accept any harm to animals for cosmetics. Completely unnecessary....I go out my way to never buy any product that is known to have tested its product on animals.

If you ever see someone walking round with an empty lead in their hand, shouting 'Fido' (or similar) frantically, they probably have a Beagle - they're nuts (but really good natured)!!

I’ve always had dogs since I was a kid and my last dog a Labrador x died last year we got him 9 years ago from a dog home. My daughter loved the dog and it’s mad how dogs can be so gentle with kids even with all the poking and prodding. I think every kid should have a dog growing up and I’m thinking of getting a beagle for her 3rd birthday

We have a Westie who will be 12 this year & I hate to think about the day he will no longer be here. He has been all around Europe with us the last to summers & never destroyed anything in the house even when he was a puppy.

My boss has just walked in saying he's just been to see a customer and "they had ****** beagles". Said he used to have one himself and he used to walk round looking odd, clutching an empty, lead whenever he took it for a walk. Definitely wasn't just my grandma then! :grinning: The handy thing with a beagle, is the white tip on the end of the tail, you can sometimes see it far away in the distance, so you at least know the direction it ran off in!!

Here's my beasty woo woo Milo. He'll be 5 on 11th April. He's a Staffy X German Shepherd, very strong, agile and intelligent, knows how to open living room window and doors around the house etc...

He's like a brother to my son, and typically of Staffy's like a nanny to him, when we have fire on he'll come over and put his head on him to make sure he's not too hot and close to the fire.

Looking at him you'd expect him to be stereotyped and mean and aggressive etc, we've even had people picking there kids and dogs up away from him when we're out walking but he's the biggest dopy loving dog I've ever known.

This is my mates male and female 'so called aggressive type dogs', the female was still a puppy in this picture, they are stupid soft with his kids and follow his son around everywhere he goes.

I found losing my dogs was more upsetting for a longer time than losing a relative! It just left a bigger hole in my heart :( Does that sound bad???

No my last dog was same breed as I have now, only realised when he was getting to grown size.

When my last was took the vets by my mum when I was in work I knew she'd gone before my mum told me, was stood there and all of a sudden just felt empty like something had left me. I text my mum saying she's gone hasn't she, her reply was how do you know....

I've got some pictures of mine in silly dopey positions ahaaa

My two Jet & Bear, this was a few years back, just happens to be good timing as it looks the same up on Epsom Downs!

Needless to say we've never been burgled! (although they are both soft as anything, but the bark doesn't imply that!)
