SO, When I had Bailey... she wasn't all that "talkative"

But Blackjack... boy oh BOY does this guy like to talk LOL!

*sniff* *sniff* *SNIFF* Stand Straight up with a GREAT BIG *AROOO!!* and BAYING while following whatever it is he has found... or he sees a dog.. *AROO!* and he'll BAY at it until he can't see it anymore or until he gets to greet it. Then he's fine and moves on.

I've had people give me dirty looks, (as a beagle sound is out of the norm, there are NO beagles around here) I can only describe a beagle aroo and bay much like that of an *injured dog sound* BUT its not... its just a Beagle making his good ol' Beagle sounds... I've had people come out of their houses asking if he is ok, if he is injured... *sigh*... I tell them, NO, LOL, he's a beagle, that's what he sounds like.

Has anyone else experienced this.

My goodness. The looks and stares I'm getting are terrible, all the while Blackjack is having the time of his life. LOL! :hyper:

Most of the time, people laugh at my furkids when one of them "cuts loose"! Teddy is the instigator. Phoebe is still a puppy and just found her voice a couple on months ago. My lab always looks at me like, "Would you please shut those two up!" /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif I love the sound!

I love the sound too, I think it is so cute, the neighboorhood I guess isn't familar with the sound of a Beagle. :biglaugh: I think its cute.

The sounds of a happy, happy, Beagle on the trail.

We went to a cook out and doggie buffet sponsored by a locally owned pet store today. Maggie was the only dog who barked while we were there. She tends to bark at large men. Everyone laughed at the beagle bark and several of the men came over and made friends with her. She clearly claimed the parking lot as her territory.

Blackjack sounds like Caleb. First congrats on having Blackjack

Caleb never shuts up and does the full gamut of sounds and worst still follows me round the house so its like having a stalker. Hes done it since being a tiny puppy.

Caleb is known in the family as my beagle boyfriend

Luckily out the three only he is the noisy one.

But I have never known a dog moan and groan, whinge and cry, and bark so much. The girls dont make half the range of noises he does.

Snoopy has a strange bark but Susi makes a terrible noise, a scream. People look to see if we are hitting our dog. If she is angry though she can bark properly. The scream is normally if a dog goes past our garden without coming down to say hallo.

The first time Gage learned to bark like that it seemed like everyone came out to see who was murdering their dog. Fortunately people in the neighborhood have gotten used to it, but I still worry that he'll make that noise in public and someone will call animal cruelty. I was planning on making a thread asking if they can be taught not to do that all the time. Gage knows that quiet means stop barking, but when he's tounging (making the aroo sound) he's in his own private world where he can't hear commands.

Louri, congratulations on getting Blackjack. I know Bailey is watching from the Bridge and wagging that you have found another beagle babe to love!
I'm afraid I can't offer you any tips on controlling the beagle bay and bark, since I've spent 11 years now trying to tone down Shiloh's barking!! She has never done a full-on baying sound, but she does aroo when she finds the scent of "an intruder" (the 4-legged kind) in her yard. She's apt to make those discoveries early in the morning or late at night, though, and I feel obliged to try to make her stop. I hate doing that--after all, she's a beagle, that's her job! And I enjoy hearing it. But I doubt my neighbors share my feelings!!
How do the quads like Blackjack? It's hard to believe they're almost 4!!

LOL... its good to know that others have gotten strange looks from others from the sounds that their Beagles make. It takes Beagle owners to understand the sounds they make. They don't just "Bark".
He has certianly made his presence known, LOL! :hi:

The Quads LOVE him, They hug on him, and Blackjack LOVES it, he sits on the couch with them when they watch TV, he comes upstairs with me to wake them up in the morning and if they are not up he gets up on their bed to wake them up, he is such a special Beagle, almost "hand picked" JUST for us. He fits in so perfectly.

Poor guy has not eaten yet /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif & this morning after his walk he puked up slime after drinking his water, I know that's because of the walk plus the water and his empty tummy... I sure wish he'd feel comfortable enough to eat.

I'm going to ask my husband to pick up the food we plan to feed him on the way home and try mixing that in with his old food & maybe that nummy new food smell will entice him to eat.

Oh, I bet he's just still just getting used to his new home and new family. I'm sure if there was a problem with his eating his other family would have mentioned it to you, don't you think? It's a plus for them that with all that's going on in their family they took the time to find Blackjack a new home and not just take him to a shelter. I bet it was hard for them to say goodbye. But it sounds like he's made such a great transition, especially when he got loose and ran straight for your van. It does sound like he was meant for you!
Enjoyed your pictures (which I hadn't seen before.)He certainly is a good lookin' boy!

Oh.... I can't wait for Chloe to start "barking", or what ever it is beagles do.... She kind of making a weird sound, that I wouldn't even qualify as a yelp.. unless her ball rolls under the TV stand, and then she is giving it all to call the ball back out.. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif she is so funny.

Actually... we ate Brunch (ate at 10:00 in the kitchen, Blackjack came into the kitchen with the aroma of Frenchtoast and sausage in the air, went to his bowl and ate his mix of pedigree dog food and Science Diet Canned Food. *YAY!* *YAY!* *YAY!* SUPER HAPPY DANCE! :bounce: :bounce2: :happyhappy:

I'm still going to have my husband pick up the new food and begin the transition to the new food and off of the Canned completely. I prefer a dry food only diet.

Can anyone tell me is there any benefit to the canned food? Because I have to say growing up and any dogs I've had in the past, I've never fed canned food. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif

I don't give Maggie canned food except as an occasional treat (frozen in her Kong). I do feed her good quality dry food. I am a little hesitant about anything science diet makes as my stepdaughter has spent in excess of $5000 saving her two cats that ate tainted food. Maggie gets mostly Orijen with some Nature's Variety Raw Instinct and Honest Kitchen. There are lots of good dry dog foods available that will make a complete diet for Blackjack. Just read labels carefully. You could always supplement with a little chicken if you want something besides dry.

Around here, the biggest advantage to canned food (both dog and cat) is that it's a good place to hide medicine! At least to my way of thinking! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
Shiloh and Poe would disagree--especially Shiloh. She LOVES canned food. It must taste better. She gets a spoonful of canned Mighty Dog twice a day with a pill in it, and it is the high oint of her day!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I've always heard that the kibble was better for them--more fiber, helps scrub the tarter off their teeth, etc. Till Shiloh got sick and I started getting canned food to hide her meds, all my dogs have always gotten dry dog food.

I love the typical Beagle sound because it is so distinctive from other dogs.

However, current Beagle, Vinny, ain't got it. They only time he comes close is when he is really stressed and wants us to help.

Beagle #1, Bama, had a great sound. He was, is, Beagle through and through. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Louri- First and foremost, congratulations!!! The way you describe Blackjack and how he is in your home, it sounds like it was meant to be. I do believe in a higher power and I think Bailey had a little discussion with the "Big Guy" and together they sent Blackjack to you and your family. I especially love the fact that he has attached himself to your husband. Let's hope he helps ease your husband's apprehension towards our four legged friends.

In regards to your question about a canned or dry food diet. I have always done the dry food. The only time I have ever used canned was for my elderly dogs because it's easier on the teeth and gums. I guess it all comes down to personal preference and what your dog is willing to eat.

Again, congratulations! I'm so happy you found such a nice boy to bring into your home.

LOL... Louri, you will learn to love that sound regardless of what everyone else thinks! Neighbors KNOW when I'm out walking Bailey, but his is more of a "RAHH, RAHH" sound when he's sniffing around. After ten minutes or so, he stops his singing and keeps sniffing. They see what a sweet dog he is and don't put up a fuss. Blackjack is probably still very excited and curious about his new surroundings.

I remember first time in the yard when Charlie was about 15 weeks old. My neighbor thought I was torturing him. Then one time out walking, couple of young girls wanted to call the animal control on us! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
Now he still does the hollering, at all times it startled me.

LOL! That's what I keep thinking... someone is going to call Animal Control on me with the "noises" my dog makes... then Animal Control will see that its a Beagle... and will likely put 2 and 2 together, LOL! :biglaugh: and instead see this Happy Beagle tail straight up & wagging hot on the trail! :rotflmao:
