beagles aren't STRONG should just watch what's happening in my family room now. I stopped at the $$ Store after work to pick up a new hair brush - naturally I looked at the pet toys - and picked up 3 rope frisbee type toys. Tanna (who is a very small beagle - about 20#) was playing tug of war with his daughter, Angel, who is about the same size. Angel was in the whelping box/bed with brother Joe (who probably weighs about 22#) - and Tanna was PULLING the whelping box across the room. Who says these kids aren't tough?
