I haven't posted in some time but I thought I would catch folks up with a few of the Adventures of Cecil and Brandy. They will be three next month and some things never seem to change. In the last few months we have had 2 break outs with both beagles, one my husbands fault and one mine, 2 single break outs one each dog being Houdini and slipping out of the harness (I have no idea how this was accomplished), a single break out due to a rabbit and two single breakouts due to sneaky Cecil slipping out of the playpen door as I was exiting. I just finished the recapture of one of these types. When they have done it together it's the hardest because they go for a united adventure and are harder to locate. If it's just my Cecil girl she does not like to be out of my sight so it's just a matter of either a wonderful neighbor helping out or some other means like today when two dogs were penned inside a pool screen and started barking big time. She got a little scared, but went to the screen to talk to them and I got her by the neck and put her harness on her. This was an easy one. Brandy knows the term go home and does and even though Cecil knows what that means, she has that beagle indeference and determination to have her way. They seem to think our neighborhood is one big dog park with lots of dogs, rabbits and other critters to find. We have a friend who has a next door neighbor in another area of our town that has 2 seven year old beagles who still break out just like mine. My girls never give me a dull moment. They are still like puppies in many ways, but do like to hang out more in the house. They still do nightly zoomies and hand to hand combat like always. I must get some newer pics to post and let you see how beautiful they are. I have a friend with a lab who always says look at the puppies and I tell her they are almost 3, but she says they will be puppies for a long long time. Gosh, I thought by 3-4 they might be not so much puppies, but oh well. I don't panic like I used to when they do beagle breaks as I am always only shortly behind them and we are way back in our development. Everyone knows them and just laughs when I go running by and say who is on the loose. Even though they are chipped and wear harnesses on walks, we need to find a collar with their names and phone numbers on them. Cecil is not supposed to wear a collar due to growths she got when she wore one, but if we just use the collar for i.d. and use the harnesses for walking, maybe that won't happen. We can't have anything dangling as they will chew each others off. Any suggestions?

Other than all the above our girls are wonderful, getting better mannered as time goes on and bring nothing but joy to our lives. They are always happy and loving life. Obviously they don't know or care about the economy, gas and other people issues. I want to be a beagle!

Marti -- it is so great to hear from you again!
I definitely had a good visual of you running down the street, telling the neighbors which pup was on the loose. Sounds like Cecil and Brandy think chase is a great game! Please do post some pics. I can't help you out with your collar question but am sure others will be along with some suggestions. Don't be such a stranger!
