    What lovely doggies :) I bet Tess and Ben are high energy! And I don't know much about hounds, but I would have thought a Basset x Beagle would be quite a wilful character :D

    They're cute, I bet there all a handful given the crosses they are :p my uncle has always had beagles, they are such foodies he has to have child locks on the cupboards and fridge :D

    Ah thanks Bodshi - yes you're right Ben & Tess are very high energy ;)

    Billy has only been with us since February - always very affectionate but had no manners, seriously bad recall & very selective hearing :D

    Now he comes to a whistle 90% of the time & when he does he's so delighted with himself :)

    Yes Jessey - handfuls indeed but Ben and Tess are very obedient & Billy is on the way now too :)

    He shows both sides of his breeding - an amazing nose for scent & quite an escape artist.

    That's so funny about your Uncles beagle!

    I came home the other day to find that Bill had found an Easter egg that long been forgotten about - there was a cardboard & foil trail of evidence everywhere :D luckily he'd only managed to eat a small bit of it.

    Lovely dogs. We rescued a Sprollie (Border Collie x Springer) from Ireland last year, she is a handful but lovely too!

    We have 3 other lovely dogs as well, a selection of spaniels (all of the colours in all of the sizes!). But this is Maggie. She is so smart!

    You're welcome, Blue Moon! My wife and I also own a dog, an adorable Pomeranian named Skipper. We raised him ever since he was a pup and has been an important part of our family. He usually chills out on his pet bed cooler (a variety of those cooling dog beds), plays frisbee during weekends, and even enjoys a stroll in the park. Four-legged friends are definitely noteworthy companions.
