Hello,

My name is Cody. My wife Katy and I just recently 8/8/08 became the proud parents of a loving beagle puppy that we name Marley. Marley is an eight week old female puppy and she was the last of the heard. She was born on June 13th (while we were on our honeymoon).

I've always wanted a puppy/dog, but do to our college lifestyle we couldn't have pets in our apartment complexes of the past. Now that we graduated (in May) and are married now (in June), we are able to have pets in our lives with our new living arrangements.

Long story short, I've always had smaller inside dogs, while my wife has always had larger outside dogs. I really want to have a smaller dog due to our apartment living. My wife finally said that I could get a dog, but wanted to wait until med school began so she could get into a routine.

So I've whined and moaned a bit over the last two months and looking at local shelter websites and craigslist for pets. Well, I came home last Thursday and to my surprise my wife had indeed been looking at the local craigslist and found a litter of beagle puppies that the family didn't have the appropriate means to take proper care of. She even had the phone number ready for me to dial.

I asked what this was all about, and she said that she found the cutest batch of puppies, and when she showed me the pictures they were indeed adorable and I instantly fell in love not even knowing if the four day old add had been fulfilled yet.

I give the guy a call and he tells me that he does have one left and he the other four (a total of five puppies) had been given away that same morning. Well.... the wife gave the go ahead excitedly and here's Marley(see below).


I have a couple videos of her playing with Baleigh (the Jack Russel puppy) that I'll try to get on here later this weekend or week.

We've already fell ill will into spoiling her. She is just too cute not too. This week we plan on taking her to a vet and getting her first check up as well and getting her vaccinations and de-worming treatment. We'll also be looking into scheduling her for a spaying, but might wait until she gets a little bigger first (anything thoughts on this?).

Glad we found this board and glad we had a beagle come into our lives.

Welcome!! Marley is absolutely adorable...and she's so tiny!

As far as the spaying goes, I just had Maggie spayed at 6 months old, and I believe that is what most vets recommend.

I'm glad you found us, and can't wait to hear more about Marley and Baleigh!

Thank you and thanks for the info on the spaying. I wasn't sure, but I thought I'd have to wait a little while before we got her spayed.

Re: New board memebers and new puppy parent

to BW! I converted your files so all can enjoy seeing the absolutely adorable Marley!
Many of us, including myself, adopted an older beagle so we get our puppy fix through other members' photos of their pups.

Here are a couple of links to posts explaining how to post pictures (both are from the How to section):

Posting Photos Using Image Button

Posting Photos Using File Manager

Main trick is to make certain that photos are small enough -- you need to resize using a program such as Photobucket or a software program such as Paint Shop.

They saved the best for last, didn't they? The Marley pounce made me laugh out loud..Henry even opened up one eye during his early evening nap to see what I was laughing at.

Welcome, welcome to Beagle World!! Marley is sooo adorable I just want to cuddle such a sweet puppy! My Daisy is nine now -- we've had her since she was five and a half. She was a stray. Beagles bring such happiness and joy into your life 'cause they are so loving and affectionate. And foodaholics, and stubborn, and very independant-minded, too!!! LOL Enjoy!!

Monica and Daisy:)
