Hi guys

Thought I'd join up to share tips and tricks with others who understand the unique sets of both pleasures and problems of owning a stubborn scent hound. This is Ella -













She is just over a year old and, although I initially had her from a pup, she is new to me all over again following a relationship split a few months back. My ex kept the dog as she had a support network in place with her mum jut around the corner so that Ella had two canine pals to play with while everyone was at work. I recently got the call to take Ella away or she was going to the pound so for the past three weeks I have been a single parent to her. She is now getting infinitely more exercise and socialization (as am I!) but does have to be on her own for two 4-5 hour periods a day while I am at work. Guess who's kitchen door is now trashed? Hopefully she is getting used to it, I am dragging her around the fields for 3/4 of an hour before work as well as a twenty minute stretch of the legs at lunchtime and a good evening walk and I have filled the kitchen with various toys and blankets and I now return home with much less of a feeling of dread!

Ella is magnificent! I love lemon/red Beagles


Sorry, but I had to resize your pictures (<span style="font-size: 8pt"> must be kept at 640x600 within the regular forums</span>)

My apologies for breaching the rules, I will bear that in mind in future.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

to BW! Ella is just beautiful! I especially love the photo of her curled up in bed with her cover over her. That calmness is so deceiving, isn't it?
I expect that Ella might be experiencing some separation anxiety related to leaving your ex's home. It sounds like you have a good plan to work through that. There have been some recent threads about using a crate or separating off a portion of the house so you might want to check those out in the discussion section.

Welcome Ella and mom! Like Chloe's Mommy, I too am a bit partial to the lemon and white variety of Beagle. Emma reminds me very much of my Jersey girl, so of course, I think she's a beautiful Beagle!

Ella is a frisky looking Beagle. Looks like lots of personality there. Welcome.

Life with our merry little hounds is never dull.
