SparkPeople Beautiful Beagles Team Messageboard Beagle owners unite! Let's talk about our beagles and our journeys to better health for us and our beagle pups! SparkPeople Beautiful Beagles Team Messageboard Hi Everyone :) I just joined today and I'm so happy I found Beautiful Beagles. I adopted my Shelby 8 years ago (Nov. 1), from our local SPCA. She was 3 years old and only at the shelter for 5 days. I was mourning the passing of my 17-1/2 year old Shepherd Mix, Aerial. Aerial went to Rainbow Bridge 6 days short of one year, when I found Shelby. I had Aerial since she was 3 months old and weighed only 7-1/2 lbs. I knew, when I saw Shelby's picture on the SPCA's website and read her history, that this b...

I, and my now late beagle, Ellie, were the "founders" of this team, but have not been active here for a long time. I am happy to see some new administrators and members and am glad to see the team is still on. <BR> <BR> I am sad to report that Ellie, my 10 1/2 year old beagle, has passed on. Not even two weeks ago, she seemed healthy, happy and wonderful pup she always was. But she started losing her appetite to the point of not eating at all. Then throwing up bile... Thu, 12 Jun 2014 22:33:27 EST Any suggestions for hotel stays? We are going to be traveling this weekend and staying in a hotel. The problem I am having is I can't leave Lil' Ann in the room with out her barking. She doesn't like to be left behind, so I have to take her and leave her in the car while we do what ever we are going to do. ( thankfully the temps will be almost ideal for this situation this weekend) <BR> This puppy will jump in my car and plant herself if she even suspects we may be going in the car. <BR> One of the problems is, I wo...

Taking the day off of work to clean her, clean me, and hope and pray the carpet cleaners can come in today and do their thing. Windows wide open to let air in, but it's a bit chilly....55, but will soon be 62. Thank heaven for that at least! Googled skunked dog, and many are saying NOT to use tomato juice. Debatable if it works and can leave a red tinge in your dog's hair. But instead, use hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dish detergent. Rub in and let ...

She is taking Prednisone, and is confined for strict rest and relaxation for 3-4 weeks. No up and down the stairs, no walks, no playing. She's 10.5 years old. Has anyone else experienced this with their Beagle? Apparently smaller breeds, including Beagles, are predisposed to have this disease. Any info or advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Mon, 4 Feb 2013 08:04:08 EST Does your Beagle Love or Hate the snow? Hi all...just wondering how your beagle does in the snow? Toby tolerates it better than the rain. When we get a lot of snow my hubby makes trails for him, AND ME, so he can go and do his business! <BR> <BR> This year I bought him a coat and he really enjoys going out in the cold now. I had no idea how much heat they loose off their backs...must be like us how we loose heat from top of our heads.

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 10:21:14 EST Hi I'm new here! My beagles- Major and Kritter I've had one beagle for 1 1/2 yrs and just adopted a rescue that has been abused. I'm having a few issues with my new guy, Kritter. For one, I've had him over 5 wks and cannot get him house trained! Aaa argh! I had to put my beloved beagle Riley down in March of 2011- he was also a rescue and older (Kritter is 6 or 7) but I didn't have this much trouble house training him and definitely not my other beagle, Major. I just don't get it. I take him out, praise him, give him a treat....yet he con... Mon, 15 Oct 2012 17:56:56 EST The Green Bean Diet! I noticed that my Toby started to huff and puff on our walks these past few weeks. I was thinking that maybe he was getting too many snacks so I started him on the green bean diet. It's very simple...cut their food portion back and supplement the rest with green beans! My vet recommend it a few years back and it really does work. My dog LOVES green beans so it's pretty easy to do. I buy the canned variety and at night I drain them and rinse them. The next day they are ready for his breakfast... Sat, 25 Aug 2012 18:40:16 EST Hi i'm new to the team Hi everyone. My name is Liv and i'm a mama to two beagle dogs, a boy "Vito" and a girl "Gabbie". They have joined me in my fittness routine every morning and inspire me to eat right with their love for carrots. I am so happy to be joining this team and know that there is someone out there who understands what a blessing it is to have a beagle in their life :) Wed, 8 Aug 2012 09:27:35 EST IMPORTANT ~PEDIGREE DOG FOOD RECALL<BR>all/pedigree-dog-food-recall/ Sun, 1 Jul 2012 09:52:58 EST Beagle Bailey I'm pet sitting 5 dogs counting Beagle Bailey,1 cat 1 parrot and an elderly possum,and a barn full of feral cats and assorted skunks who help eat the feral cats food.Bailey can't understand why mom won't let him play,chase and or eat the parrot.I have the cage on my kitchen drain board just out of his reach.

Tue, 26 Jun 2012 19:11:50 EST Beagle History Beagles have a long history, but the most famous of them all, of course, is Snoopy, whose delight in food and travel exemplifies the breed. This small, popular trail hound, used chiefly to hunt rabbit and hare, was developed in England. The breed name is thought to have come from the Celtic word beag, meaning "small." In color and outline the Beagle resembles a miniature Foxhound. For purposes of field trialing and conformation judging, Beagles are divided into two sizes: 13 inches and under,...

The other day I made pancakes and in this house we use real butter. Well We were done and getting ready to clean up. My son stepped outside to throw the garbage away and I stepped into the living room for a minute. I made sure that the pancakes were out of beagle reach before leaving the room. I was so afraid of him getting into them I didn't think of anything else. Well I heard NOTHING and peeked in to see what was going on. All I saw was a napkin under Toby's feet and him frantically doing ... Thu, 3 May 2012 07:24:13 EST Fond Beagle Bailey's hiding place Beagle Bailey loves plastic bottles! When he was a baby I use to hike with my friend and pick up cans and bottles along the way. So Bailey loves plastic bottles.He plays with them then apparently he hides them in the house when he gets tired. I was cleaning my sons room plus the kitchen /office, I found enough plastic bottles under the desk and under sons bed to almost fill a large plastic trash bag.I wonder if he expects the money for them when I cash them in..I will buy him a few treats or... Sat, 11 Feb 2012 19:25:34 EST Beagles - their diet As I have found out over the years there are a lot of parallels between Beagles and many of us on Spark. Both find eating to be incredibly rewarding in the short term, even when they are not hungry. I have other dogs who would never consider eating when they are not hungry and who will sometimes turn down food when they are emotionally upset. One of my whippets is like that. She is a little skinny even for a whippet and I need to tempt her with lovely smells of people food or raw meat fairly ... Mon, 6 Feb 2012 11:28:48 EST Hello! I'm just here to say a friendly Hi! I'm Amie and I have a 10 year old beagle-blue-tick mix, Baby Girl (Babe). She's my boyfriend's old hunting dog, who was never an inside dog until I got a hold of her :). I am a huge dog lover, but the beagle breed definitely sticks with me most, Babe is the most cuddly dog. I love when she bays on our walks...Although other people who aren't used to the outrageous barking think she is dying...It puts a huge smile on my face seeing how happy she is when s...

In helping me bring groceries in, he just let Ellie in the house with the leash still attached. When we got back inside, this is what we found! "Bailey", our granddog, was trying to give Ellie a walk! Hysterical! I put it on YouTube. Here's the link: <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Wed, 19 Oct 2011 21:22:33 EST Buddy gave us a scare this morning. Well, Buddy is doing great. This morning there were 5 deer in our back yard. Now, remember we have to keep him "quiet". He was beside himself. We were in the den and I kept him on the leash, tried to keep him calm, talking to him and staying calm myself. Well, the darling deer finally decided to walk along...we live in a neighborhood, and I guess the deer live here also! They left, I carefully took Buddy outside, he just wasn't going to stay in, so, I thought ok, I'll take him out, away... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 21:37:43 EST pray for Roo well hope you all are doing good ,I need to ask y'all a favorite I know Roo not a Beagle he's a rat terrier mix with jack russell but i asking for y'all to pray for him he got attack by 2 dogs that were bigger than him and he's not doing good at all he's just laying around hasn't eaten in 2 days but he has drunk some water so hopefully he's recovery. <em>465</em> <em>200</em> Fri, 14 Oct 2011 12:47:01 EST Buddy's surgery Bud had his lumpectomy today and thank goodness, everything is fine. They are fatty lumps and we are extremely happy to hear that. They had to be removed, because they were pressing on his hind legs, and when we would pet him on that spot, he'd growl, so, it is all good. We also had his teeth cleaned at the same time, and the dr. pulled a tooth because it was infected underneath it. <BR> <BR> But, Buddy will be home with us tonight and I can't wait to get him. Thank you all for your good... Thu, 13 Oct 2011 16:27:24 EST Fairy/Angel Beagle - Halloween I was looking for my halloween costume and came across a pair of wings from a long time ago.

Yesterday afternoon, DW called to say that she had let Foxy outside (off leash) to go relieve herself (it was raining pretty hard). <BR> <BR> As it's been raining all week, she had done this a couple of times and Foxy would come back when called (much to my surprise). But yesterday, when she went to call her, Foxy was nowhere to be found. <BR> <BR> Although Foxy was not microchipped, she was wearing a collar and tag with her name & our phone number on it. Since I've been riding my bike wi... Fri, 9 Sep 2011 11:09:08 EST Precise dog food Precise dog food is another thing that we swear by. It's what we used for our German Short-Haired Pointer, and after we used up the supply of what Foxy's previous owner had given to us, we made the switch to what we knew and trusted. <BR> <BR> It makes her go to the bathroom a lot, but she is much happier and not straining when she has to go. Fri, 2 Sep 2011 10:46:23 EST Visit to the vet Well, we took Buddy for his routine check-up at the vet and got some unexpected scarry news. He has a tumor on his right side, near his hind leg. He's had a lump on the other side, that the Dr. told us is a fatty mass...but, we really didn't see the other lump and it is about 3" and he said we should really consider removing it. I am so worried, and also feeling guilty. He is petted and hugged and we never felt it. Dr. Stutz also suggested removing a growth Bud has on his face near his e... Wed, 24 Aug 2011 22:12:17 EST Foot fetish Ok...does this seem strange? But Buddy loves to lick the inside of my shoes. I guess I should feel like its a feet don't stink, or do they...hummm. It grosses me out. Does anyone else have a beagle with this crazy habit? <em>68</em> Fri, 22 Jul 2011 20:30:14 EST New Co Leader Hi Team!

I love dogs, I have had a bunch of different kinds over the years, and without a doubt my favorites are eskimo dogs - they are smart and super active.

Sun, 20 Mar 2011 20:38:21 EST my beagle ate my stability ball! Okay well not so much "eat" as pop a hole in it and tear it apart. Like usual, the cats probably had a part in its destruction as well. It's still a little too icy outside to go out and get a new one today. Guess the exercises can wait a day! <BR> <BR> I told my husband earlier in the day that my stability ball needed a little more air in it. He brought it into the bedroom later that night and jokingly said "I think I know what the problem is." I saw the huge hole Beau put in it but I could...

I don't know where she came from before us, but I am so grateful to be able to let her know that our family loves her. I had to teach my beagle to howl and bark. Now she let's us know when she wants her treats and feels comfortable doing so. Before, she was fearful of her own voice and any sudden noice scared her. Riley has brought so much into our lives. ...

Hello everyone, I no longer personally own a beagle, but years ago I did, that I had rescured from a research lab when she was 6months old who I named Liberty. I gave her 9 years that she never would have had before she passed away. She was precious. Now 17 years later by brother and his family, that I share my home with, rescued a 5 year old from the local shelter, her name is Dazy and she too is precious. We all love her very much. <em>338</em> Mon, 18 Oct 2010 16:29:55 EST Beagle Pups on Ustream I don't know why I haven't shared this site sooner.

One of the good things though is that my son gets to attend the attractions free also, so it is giving him something to do over the summer and I get to spend time with him. It definitely makes it worth it to me. ... Thu, 26 Jun 2008 18:59:07 EST Starting over/newby Hi! My name is Jen and I tried doing Sparkpeople over a year ago. I have trouble with motivating myself. This year I am really going to try, especially since my doctor is wanting me to lose 10 pounds by August. <BR> <BR> I am the proud owner of a 1-year-old beagle named Stanley. He is my sweetie! I will never have another kind of dog! Granted me sometimes makes me crazy, but when he looks at me with those big brown eyes....I melt! <BR> <BR> I am glad to have found this group and look...

MISS ELLIE GOES TO THE FARM: <BR> <BR> So...we went to visit our oldest son, Adam, 27, on his farm. He doesn't own the farm. He rents a farm home on it. It's about 110 miles west of Chicago. We mistakenly thought Ellie would LOVE to go to the farm! What a mistake! She was so anxious in the car. It was about an hour and a half drive. She shook, shed, panted the whole way. This only confirms our fears that she was taken in a car and dumped somewhere. She never liked car rides and onl...

Fri, 2 May 2008 13:13:24 EST My poor baby I had to take my little girl, Zoe, to the vet this morning because she had blood in her urine. They said she has an infection and gave her some antibiotics and something for the pain. BUT, we also got in a bit of trouble because Zoe has gained 5 lb since the last time we were there. She's 31 lb now and she's a regular Beagle, not a walker or anything like that. She's always been on the heavy side ever since I got her from the pet rescue place but I didn't realize she had gained so much. ... Tue, 29 Apr 2008 16:25:28 EST Garbage eater driving me crazy!!!

Does anyone else have a beagle that seems to think that all furniture and people are a jungle gym? Our beagle has to be on top of every piece of furniture no matter how many times we tell him no. He really likes to walk along the back of the couch...while people are sitting! Fri, 18 Apr 2008 22:13:49 EST Me and my Beagle/ American Eagle babies Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I'm Kelly and I have 2 very adorable dogs. Edgar is a beagle and Casey in an American Eagle (Beagle/ American Eskimo mix). They are so much like having kids that you may as well say I have 8 kids instead of 6. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and seeing your cute Beagles. <BR> <BR> Kelly Tue, 15 Apr 2008 17:04:19 EST My Beagle and I Elvis and I are on a mission, we are going to be work out buddies, ( he needs a little exercise himself, but do not tell him) . <BR> Today we are headed to the park to watch my daughter Madison and her softball team practice today, I figure it will give Elvis some time out and we can run and play ,,.Hope it works out as I plan.. <BR> Thanks <BR> <BR> Pam <em>253</em> Wed, 2 Apr 2008 13:50:52 EST Hi There Hi I am Pam , My awesome beagal is "Elvis" , he will be 3 of St.Patty's day, . <BR> He is a very important part of this faily and has most of us wrapped, But I know what he is up to, <BR> <BR> Elvis really is not sure if he is a dog, human or a cat like our "Dakota". Dakota and Elvis keep each other busy ,but more important Dakota keeps elvis in <BR> <BR> nice meeting you guys Sat, 8 Mar 2008 17:17:17 EST Log in Your Exercise w/ or w/out Fido! Here's a convenient place to log in your exercise (and hopefully,sometimes with your canine friend). We can motivate each other by what we share in regards to physsical fitness. <BR> <BR> Today is actually my "rest day" for this week. I'm in training for a triathlon this June and had a busy exercise week. However, if the weather holds, I'm hoping to take Ellie out for a walk around the block. She weighed in at 32.5 lbs at the vet. Not tooooo bad...but I think 30 lbs would be better. So ... Fri, 7 Mar 2008 07:45:39 EST Beagle Brains We took Miss Ellie to the Vet for her annual shots, etc. We told the vet we wanted to wean her off this antidepressant designed just for dogs (forgot the name). She's a nervous Nelly and has separation anxiety when we leave. She'll find something in the house and chew it up (fortunately, she chooses non-important stuff like pencils, paper, MOST of the time, but sometimes chews pens or something that can get into the carpet). Even with the drug, although a bit better, she'll do it. So we k...

Wed, 27 Feb 2008 18:57:28 EST Introduce You and Your Dog My name is Lynn. I'm a proud owner of Miss Ellie, a beagle we adopted from a stray halfway house. We named her, Eleanor Roosevelt, or, Miss Ellie for short. She just looked like an Ellie and my husband decided on the First Lady name. <BR> I'm going to be participating in my first triathlon this summer. Miss Ellie is helping me train for the run portion. She joins me on my runs so she can get fit too. She's 35 lbs! A tad too much! <BR> Please share your beagle story as well! <BR> ... Mon, 18 Feb 2008 22:50:02 EST
