Hello, my name is chuck, my wife is sheri. we lost our last dog about 2 years ago, he was a chocolate lab. and we feel we are ready now to get out next dog, we are thinking about getting a pair of beagles soon. we have been doing a lot of reading and research on the internet about beagles, we have not started shopping yet, but we are ready to. not sure as to if we should get two males or two females or one of each, we will have them fixed what ever we get, thanks for letting me join this fine looking group.
