The other night I was out walking Caesar. As we were passing a small group of people Caesar stopped to sniff a shrub. At that point one lady walked over to me and said Beagles sure are stupid. You know, on the ladder of dog intelligence they are very low.I was stunned! All I could think to say was Actually beagles are very smart. Thier noses just get them into things. Her reply was Well my fammily has two beagles and they are really stupid. At that point I walked away. I was so mad!!!How dare she say that? A complete stranger! As we continued to walk I was thinking about all the things I should have said, like There are no stupid dogs, only stupid dog owners. I actually turned back, hoping to see them again but by then they were gone. If I see her again I'll be better prepared. Caesar is not stupid, nor is any beagle!
