Hey there everybody. I'm new here, but not new to beagles. I have 4. They are great, but a handfull as ya'll should know. I got my 1st (Mandy which is now 3 and 1/2yrs) from my sister almost 3 years ago. She couldn't take care of her. My 2nd (Benny who is 3yrs) I adopted from the yancey county (NC) animal shelter back in Dec. of '07. (MANDY needed a friend). Then here in the past 6 months a got engaged and bought my first house and some land back in the woods. So we decided to adopt 2 more from the same animal shelter back in January. We got Dexter and Daisy which are both 1yr old. So thats my short story of how a got my beagles. I will have some pics up soon.
