Welcome to you both, Lauren and Socket! :wave:

My Henry was a hurricane rescue from Louisiana. Came here sick and scared, now he's well and loved.

Well thanks for the nice welcome everyone! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I will definitely post pics of Socket asap. He was bred to be a 15", but is rather *ahem* overgrown. He stands roughly 18" tall and pushes 40-43 lbs some months. (not overweight, I promise) I have plenty of pictures and as soon as I have a few minutes to gather my bearings here... then they will come! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I love pics too, so you'll be seeing plenty from me in the future!

I apologize for missing giving the name of my lovely little (well maybe not SO little anymore @ 55 lbs, haha) lab puppy! Her name is Lia. She's a crazy pup, so you might hear a bit about her from time to time also.

Hi and welcome Lauren and Socket. Tell us all about your Socket. I would love to hear about the name. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
Don't forget to introduce his honorary beagle sister, the 7 mo. old Lab. :thumbup:

Socket was the world's craziest puppy. Honestly, he was the hardest dog my family ever had to housebreak, crate train, obedience train, etc, etc etc! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif Everyone always asks about his name. Honestly, he is the "family" dog, but has always been my younger brother's shadow. My younger brother was in school to become a mechanic at the time that we got Socket, so Socket's name...drumroll please... came from the good ol' Socket wrench. It's a really silly story, but the name just suits him really well. He's happy as a clam just laying outside in my brother's shop while Tim (my bro) is out there revamping his old Trans Am. Don't worry, he's an inside dog. We don't leave our dogs outside ever.

Howdy Lauren :wave: Welcome to Beagle World and a big old welcome arroooo to Socket. Labs and beagles seem to go together. I'm sure Socket is teaching Lia the importance of being a member of the pack. Since Labs think they are four-legged humans, beagles figure us humans are jsut another pack mkember, I'm sure Lia and Socket will have you well trained /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif My Bagel was a rescue, got him when he was about Socket's age. That was ten years ago in February. Looking forward to exchanging stories, advice and support.

Wow, you guys are very welcoming and friendly here!

Socket and Lia get along famously. They are constantly chasing each other around, playing tug with their toys or playing a game I like to call "bitey face." It's definitely brought out some more youthfulness in Socket since we've had Lia around. He used to be such a couch potato and now he loves to romp, run and play again. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Socket is doing well- taught Lia how to hold up her nylabones to chew on them, how to put toys back in the toybox and how to counter surf. :rolleyes:

But, we're all doing well. Lia's coming along famously with her training... we just finished basic obedience! YAY!

Welcome to BW! You will definitely find our group both informative and caring. I am mother to an almost 13 year old beagle named Maggie -- I rescued her when she was about 1 year old. Looking forward to lots of more stories and, of course, pictures. If you get some time, take a look at our "discussion" section -- you'll find lots of helpful tips and suggestions in previous posts.

I'm Pat and Boeing is my baby beagle boy. We live in Bangkok, Thailand, and would love to extend a very warm welcome to you and your pack :wave:

You'll enjoy being here like I do :thumbup:

Welcome, Labs are also known as "lickadors" here in the northwest US! Labs were the dominant breed of dog here before many movies that featured beags including "Enterprize,s Porthos" Star-trek series. But I was the owner/operator of Beagle Heating & A/C for over 6 yrs in my first attempt at being self employed & Goober was a "natural" at being used for advertizement! :thumbup: He is undoubtably responsible for part of the popularity of beags here! Many new folks here have never seen the great "moneymaker" pic of him posed in front of a heat-n-glo fireplace...but he was the "gimmick" that fed us & helped me to make a sale! :thumbup: Goober is truly the best hundred dollar investment I ever made! :thumbup:

Hello, from the far away city of Fond du Lac, WI! It's nice to see another "Cheesehead" on here. It's also nice to see another beagle-lab family. I am owned by Molly, a almost 5 year old beagle and Maggie, an 8 1/2 year old black lab. Oh, and we can't forget Fuzz, the 15 year old 1/2 Siamese cat who acts like he is 4.

Welcome to the boards!!
