OMG!

Just loved that! He obviously wants to keep you for himself.
We dont do anything when they get this reverse sneeze, it always goes away despite sounding terrible. All four of our beagles have had it.
The first 2 lived to be 14, so we ignore the problem with Susi and Snoopy.

All you need to do is gently pinch shut his nose until he starts licking. That will break the cycle. You also might consider talking to youe vet about getting him some allergy meds. I really cuts down on the reverse sneeze. I just never thought it could improve someone's love life.

That story was funny (I'm sure you don't think so). Lucky rarely ever has a reverse sneeze and when he does, it's only for a few seconds. I can't believe that girl freaked out like that! You don't need someone who can't appreciate bernie and his special reverse sneeze! Hehe. Can't stop laughing... :rotflmao:

:lol2: Oh RC, I love that about the pee-mail!! What a really funny story!! (Sorry your buddy was a chick repellant as well as a magnent!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif ) Yes, I've found that to be the case too: Miss Shiloh never does her reverse sneezing trick around people who actually know what the heck is going on with her!! I remember once reading somewhere that dogs do reverse sneezing when they're excited. Excited? I don't think so!! Shiloh can wake herself out of a dead sleep (and me too, I might add!) with her honk, honk honk!!

Go Bernie! I rub Tippi's throat for a few seconds when this happens and that seems to stop it. In fact its gotten to the point that when she feels one coming on she comes looking for me and I automatically rub her throat. She's a wonderful people trainer.

Ricksconnected,
***(wiping tears)*** I haven't laughed so hard in .....well.....FOREVER.
I'm not kidding.....that's the best laugh I've had in months!! I have family here right now for the funeral of my dear grandfather....and your story just gave me the laugh I needed so badly.
Our beagles are absolute comics! It's obvious you have the sense of humor to appreciate Bernie's antics. He's just helping you find the PERFECT girl to appreciate his Beagle-ness... :thumbup:

Bernie just knew that something wasn't right about that girl! :hi: He was just trying to keep you from being heartbroken. :hi: Silly Beagle! Jersey does the reverse sneeze frequently and like Shiloh she'll wake us all up in the middle of the night doing it. You've got to do something to make him swallow. I hold Jersey's nose so she has to breathe through her mouth and rub her throat. Even offering a treat helps because it makes her swallow.

I agree with others that Bernie must have sensed the beautiful blonde was just not the right one for you!! You are a fabulous story-teller. I think you ought to put your Bernie stories into a published book -- seriously, you have talent!

That is too funny! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif You have to admit, though, that if the girl was so easily turned off by a little snorting and honking, she might not have been worth your time. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

my first thoughts go out to you and your family.
im sorry to hear the news.

ok folks thanks so much for your inputs on the reverse sneezing. i'm gonna try these things and see if it works.(maybe i should go pull the Q tips out of beag's nose) theres plenty more stories to come about this dang hound. hes really one of a kind. yeah, maybe bernie was trying to warn me about this lovely fine U.S.D.A....... ok never mind. but honestly, i find it hard to take advice about love from someone who chases their own a$$. know what i mean? :animal18:

That was hilarious!!!! :rotflmao:
Thanks for the morning laugh, RC. As for the backward sneeze, I once read an article on a website and it said to cover the beagle's nose firmly when there's a bout and scratch the dog's chin and throat at the same time. I did as suggested and it worked. So now whenever Boeing starts to sneeze backward, I do that and it stops in a few seconds. I don't know if there's any other way.

You know what he's trying to do...he's trying to find you a woman that knows how to handle a beagle.

Almost any female beagle lover would know to say "hey he'll stop that if you rub his throat/do this/do that"

Funny, funny story!!!! Yes, it is embarrassing when they do their reverse sneeze in front of those that don't know what it is.

But as suggested by someone else just carefully pinch their nostrils together, and they will swallow and it usually stops it. Or I rub gently along the top of their snout and talk calmly to them. Pooh Bear hates getting this. We call it snorking. He thinks he is dying I think when it happens. He lays down and has a terrible worried look on his face.

Too funny. When I was a single woman....IF my dog/animal didn't like the guy....the guy was gone!

Animals know if a person is an animal person or not.

Your beagle was giving you advise.
