Hi Louise! My name is Nancy and I am new in this forum as well. I have adopted a Beagle and I named him Biggel. LOL! Couldnt think of anything nicer than that. Joined this forum to learn more about handling two Beagles at home. Thinking of getting another Biggel. I meant Beagle. :cool:

Hi Betty - nice to meet you. My name is Glenda and I live in eastern WA. I am currently owned by four beagles, but for several years bred championship line beagles, and at one time had 10 - all beloved pets - just one mama and daddy! I don't know about Hay Maker, but just went online and did a search - and came up with this site with some information for you - hope it's helpful:

Welcome to the group, Ben! I'm a 73 year old great grandma and former "beagle breeder" - currently have 4 beagles, Attachment 685, Chloe, almost 12, JoJo, almost 9, Lottie, a rescue who will be 11 in March and JoJo's baby, Lily - who just turned 3. Due to age related problems I had to re-home 7 of my beagles a couple of years ago - and they are still very missed. I work several days a week as an "in-home caregiver" - and in my spare time, manage a beagle "group" on Yuku. Obviously I'm a "beagle nut"!:p

I'm Steve. I'm 41. I live in Nashville where I have been a teacher for 17 years. Wonderful wife. Two great kids we adopted from China (7 & 5).
We recently adopted a 2 year old Beagle named Watson from a no-kill shelter. We are still adjusting and I am learning a lot about Beagle temperament (by golly when he wants something, he is *focused* on it.).
In my spare time I like to be outdoors. Hunting, fishing, poking around in the shed out back. I'm hoping Watson will be a 'companion dog' that hunts rather than a full time hunting dog.
That's it I guess. I'll save my other info for the training forums, lol.

Welcome to the forum. The tree farm sounds interesting , I'll bet hunting is good around the farm area. Two new Beagles will keep you busy , and you will have a lot of fun with basic training and the later starting them on Rabbit hunting. We have had a few threads lately on training for Rabbit hunting and on how to start your dogs out. You may want to look at some of the threads in the Hunting and Training forum and perhaps add your own post.
I do rescue work with hunting breed hounds and currently have 10 hounds , mostly Redbone and a couple of Setter mix. I also take care of a Black and Tan hound off site for a friend not able to feed or take care of health needs.
