Anyway, she wanted to
But I just can’t figure it out – Shiloh is now 8 y.o. – he was neutered around 6 or 7 months – it’s not a female dog he is after, he wants to hunt and roam but this time he really had me concerned; when my nephew was able to bring Shiloh home, he was on the verge of over-heating, a very common thing in Beagles because once they are on a scent – they become lean, mean hunting machines and nothing will stop them or slow them down (except maybe a car or worse) as they keep going full-throttle, darting back and forth. I love watching Shiloh out in the SAFETY of our BACKYARD (when he isn’t trying to escape) when he catches a scent – I wish I could take him on a hunt – definitely poetry in motion. But, in the process, talk about living for the moment – Beagles don’t care about drinking or stopping to rest. And it got up to 90 degrees here yesterday and very windy. When he got home I made him lay on the linoleum in the kitchen and put wet paper towels all over him – I have NEVER seen a dog panting so rapidly.
I do have to wonder sometimes where Shasta’s Beagleness is though – she saw him run out to freedom – she made a ruckess but no move to escape – gotta love that mama’s lady diva.
Ok, I am rambling – actually I am past rambling – gotta stop for now. Next time, the Beaglebratz will be here.
