This makes me mad just reading it and I feel you! My husband and I took our 2 for a walk in the park one day and we approached a play group of a few mom's and their kiddos when one of the mom's yelled out watch out, you never know with Beagles I was so angry and all I could think to say at the time was keep a good hold on Daisy Matt because you never know! I wanted to punch her in her faceI was burnt about it all day and I still get angry when I think about all the come backs I could have used. I hate when people make assumptions about a breed they have never owned or they think they know all about a breed because of one strange encounter they might have had. You are right there are no stupid dogs just stupid dog owners!!
