Hi. :wave: My name is Pat. My new beagle, Charlie,and I have much to learn about living together. Felt very lucky when I found Beagle World yesterday. Might help keep us sane.

Charlie is 8 weeks old, cute as can be, funny, veryyyyy active, and unbelievably stubborn. It is a challenge to have to be so "on duty" with him when I just want to pick him up and hug him.

So in addition to seeking help and counseling here, I am reading the books and taking classes after the first of the year. A glimmer of hope this am -- he was so mellow after breakfast that he AND one of our cats were in the open pen in the family room. Together!. He was lolling, she was playing with one of the toys. I'll have to post a picture.

Welcome to Beagle World. :wave: There a lot of here who have raised their beagles from pups but some like Sandy and myself have rescues and miss out on the "fun" of puppuhood.

I know beagles are "terrors" till they are done teething and extra active until almost 2 years but then they do calm do and act like ordinary pups for the rest of their lives.

Looking forward to hearing of Charlie and his exploits /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Welcome to BW, Pat & Charlie! This is a great forum where you can share your exploits and adventures with Charlie and learn about other beagle owners' experiences and, as others have said, we LOVE pictures. I, too, have a rescue --Maggie who is now a distinguished senior lady of 11. Looking forward to hearing more from you and getting a look at Charlie!

Welcome Pat & Charlie! :wave:

My Polly is about 12 weeks old right now, and I know exactly what you are going through! :hi:

Isn't it great when they are exhausted and just want to snuggle?!!!

Hi Pat and Charlie :wave:

Can't wait to see pics. My hubby and I are handicapped so we've never had a puppy. We've always had older dogs. Daisy is our foundling (about 2 years ago) and is the love of our lives. She's 7 years old and even though she's somewhat laid back she can still be a little devil at times. But all the snuggles and kisses are worth everything in the world to us.

Welcome, welcome! Hope you have fun!!!

Welcome to Beagle World and to life with a Beagle baby. Charlie's going to test your patience but it's so worth it in the end. I've had my Jersey since she was about 8 weeks as well. She's 18 months now and is the light of my life. I don't know how I'd live without her. :heart:

Just remember, this too shall pass!! :hi: There are lots of knowledgable folks here with good advice. Can't wait to see the picture of Charlie and the kitty--how cute!!
BTW, I see you're from Ann Arbor. We lived in Grand Rapids for 8 years before moving to Connecticut. We loved Michigan!
