Another typical beagle trait!! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif I too have to take things out of his mouth everytime we go out for a walk. Mostly it's food scraps, but sometimes it's worse than that and I don't even look at what I extract from his mouth. Ugh!!! I have to glue my eyes on him when we're out and he kinda knows it. I have to steer him from things that look suspicious along the way.
