Hello everyone, Miggy and I just got home from our trip to Savannah. My grandchildren adored him and he had more fun than a 3 month old pup should have. Yes, he turned 3 months on Tuesday and as JennyC said, he seems more hyper now that he passed that milestone. He did really well at my daughters house, although he got nervous if I was out of sight. But he met lots of people and some dogs and learned what cold weather is like. They have a treehouse and slide and he got up the nerve to come down the slide. He did it about 10 times and it was soooo cute! I agree that dogs at this age really need training and we are starting a class on Sunday. Miggy can sit and down but he is a terror on the leash. I thought teaching him would be easy but now I see why they have those classes. Miggy is a great dog but without manners and obedience I don't think we could handle him. Next time I'll put up some vacation pics. O, I do have one question-- Miggy's hair was black on top of his head but it seems to be turning brown. Anyone hear of this? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif

Welcome back. Maggie's color change was a surprise to me also. I didn't know that beagles were born black and white and the brown comes in later. Maggie is eleven months now and is still getting more brown. Sometimes it seems like she changes between when I leave for work and when I get home.

I just love the color changing. Cecil and Brandy are 20 months old now and I think the color is probably close to fixed. I wish Brandy had gotten more brown, but she didn't. Cecil got some beautiful brown and her black is not as dark and shiney as Brandy's because under the black is brown fur. Anyone know how long they do change colors?

I don't know how long the colour changing can last - maybe their whole lives if you count the going grey part too!

Popcorn doesn't seem to have changed colour much at all since we adopted her (we estimate she was about seven months old at the time and the only one of our three who was close to a puppy when we adopted her). I do think she stopped changing colour before she was 100% finished, though, because there is a noticeable line across the top of her head and the front part is then a distinctly lighter brown than the back part!

One thing I did notice changing quite a bit with Popcorn after we adopted her, however, was the texture of her fur. When she first arrived it was almost a little bit downy and the "edges" between the different colours were almost spiky - especially between the black and the white. Her fur definitely is now much sleeker than it was originally - is that something to do with the change from puppy to adulthood too?

Yes...each pup changes colors at a different age and pace. It's always an adventure....
Maggie has been slow to change color (she's over 2 years old and is still changing color)

Did you happen to get any pictures of the slide? I would LOVE to see that :rotflmao:
