Occasionally someone will say something bad about Beagles to me, but I try not to let it bother me. For the most part I only hear about some Beagle they knew or had as a child, etc... I figure I am a little prejudice when it comes to my babies and there are a few breeds out there that I too don't care much for and/or that I don't know much about, but that is what makes our world so great. Thankfully there are people to love all different types/breeds. I for one would never own a pit bull, but all the people I know that have one think they are the best dogs in the world. To each his own.
