Fall is here, Yippee! The trees are changing, there is a chill in the air, it's my favorite time of the year!

The beagle boys are still busy being beagles and doing well!

I too love the fall, my favorite time of the year.

I hear the neighbors fur kids belting across the tops of the mountains chasing rabbits and enjoying the our doors too. This is the time of the year where I take a few days off to go hunting and enjoy the great out doors. Most people thing when I say hunting I meant to hunt but in reality I just love to take the gun for a walk and enjoy the scenery and wild life.

Last year while deer hunting I was sitting in my tree stand watching 6 deer 50 yards away grazing in the grass. A squirrel making its way toward me across the tree tops slowly till it had gotten 25 feet away.

While sitting there a red tailed hawk flew past me only a few feet from behind on a fair swoop toward the squirrel hoping to have lunch but only getting a near miss. He landed where the squirrel had been and pondered his mistake before flying off.

These are the joys of sitting in a tree stand for hours quietly while hunting, well kind of. More like just taking the gun for a walk.

Have you ever taken a beagle out hunting with you?
I sometimes go hunting also. Here in Australia, rabbits and wild cats are causing alot of trouble to farmers with livestock. But i think i'd be too afraid to take my beagles out there. Too much can go wrong...

Yes I have, In the past I have hunted with up to 6 beagles at one time. The younger ones whom were not yet into the tracking of the scent had followed the more seasoned ones and learned or just played around in the fields like little kids, LOL.

Was nice to see them all have a good time and be in the out doors.

Well, today was monumental. Quinn was spayed. She's curled up beside me on the couch, and I just gave her the anti-inflammatory. I just hope it doesn't end up coming out one end or another in a messy fashion, as I've heard negative things about Rimadyl. Also, Grayson and Quinn have been split up temporarily, as Evan wanted to see how they would do if we each took one for a week. Grayson comes to me next week, as Evan will be out in the field for half of October. Then, for November, they go back to him because I'll be in DC for five days. They've been doing WONDERFULLY without each other. I think that is largely in part because they are so used to Evan and me and familiar with their surroundings that they are comfortable without each other. Both Evan and I have noticed that they won't leave our sides, though. Sounds normal for a puppy, I think...

Re: Checking In (September)!

Hi all - real life has been keeping me busy so I've not been here in a while. Lemon and Luna beagle are alive and well. They have their own room when I'm gone, and i was laid up part of the summer with a Knee injury, and after I went back to work. Luna has decided she does not WANT to go in her room when I leave - have gone to teach many times with dog hair on me from extracting the beagle out from under the bed....both dogs are getting older, but definitely remain energetic. the magic words in our house are walk and ride (As in to the park)...

Re: Checking In (September)!

Sally the Beagle is still alive and well. The squirrels are very active and she is chasing darned near every one of them in spite of the fact that the can move a bit quicker and shinny up trees away from her.

As a matter of fact, this past week the weather in Northern Indiana has been darnright cold and miserable.

Hi Dinoz - Being an ex-pat Aussie (Wollongong) now living in NZ - no spiders, no snakes, no wild cats - only mad kiwis (not the feathered kind)! Certainly a lot of dangers out there in the Aussie bush. I too would worry. The kiwis here use dogs all the time for hunting, but they don't face the same perils.

The boys (cobi and casie) and I have been very busy, plus having major computer meltdowns has deterred us from being at our favorite Beagle site. But, we've been having some fun. Casie has forgotten how to poo outside again, so that is retraining....I did learn this summer he was trained on an out door run, concrete, which explains why he does his duties on the sidewalk --- much to my postal carrier's dismay. But this inside pooing has got to go....he is two now, and this shouldn't be that hard for him to understand. Cobi is now 9, and has lost about 10 lbs...from 45 --- he is looking rather spiffy for all the females out there. It was a fun summer, not too hot, so they got to be out in the yard a lot....but now that SD fall/winter is here, it's harder to get them out and running in the cold air.

Good to be back
Cathy
Cobi and Casie's mom
