Okay, I HAD to measure Li'l Girl's tail. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/bounce.gif She wasn't crazy about that. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/biggrin.gif She fell far short of Sadie, since her tail measured 10" from root to tip. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sign20.gif

It is a breed standard defect for a beagle to have a long tail. My Kioko's tail, though not a long one, is also a "defect" tail because it's too curved back over her body. But...I think she's gorgeous just as is. I didn't want a show beagle...I just wanted a beagle. Kioko is our gorgeous girl, and I wouldn't change a thing.

When ever we show our beagles over here we just tidy the stray hairs on their tails so that thet have a nice uniform point at the end. British beagle showers do not tend to round off the tails as they seem to do in America.

We do not trim the neck or the ear fur either, again this seems to be a requirement to showing in America.

When I take puppies in to the vet to get dew claws removed, he always teases me about "docking" the ears and tail at the same time /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/greendevil.gif Silly Dr. Randy! Since my beagles are all different sizes, different coloring, different tails! They all have fairly long tails (but most are lethal if they hit you) - but what varies with mine is the "handle" (the white tip) - some are almost as long as the tail and some are just "tips".

Jersey's tail is exactly 12 inches long. It curves like a teapot handle over her back and is way out of standard. Her ears are somewhere between 5 and 5.5 inches. Jersey wasn't too keen on letting me measure them so it was hard to get an accurate number. Apparently I can add rulers to the list of things that scare her. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/animal18.gif

At least that's what I always tell people at work when they laugh at me over the latest thing I've done with/for Jersey. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol2.gif
