Wow, I am so glad to come across this forum! After reading some threads I have discovered that my Beagle, Hugo, is not the only one who destroys things!!
I bought Hugo from a dodgy backyard breader from here in Oz and I fell in love with him after he fell asleep on my handbag. After I left I realised I had done him a favour because his current living conditions were terrible.
Hugo has changed my life...Some good and some bad!! I am much more active, we go to dog school, the dog park, doggy day care once per week, the Beach and just joined a Beagle club here which do tracking and all sorts of fun!! He is very active indeed and just never seems to tire!! But I love him all the same....
How very quickly they become your best friend and who can resist that face!!
