Love your avatar... My very first dog was a beagle.. Actually it was my mothers but he was always in trouble so she traded my parakeet for her dog... His name was Hugo.. I was always trying to bail him out of trouble.. We lived in the country. He would run off to chase rabbits, but come home smiling like horse poo. always had to stop along the way and roll in it. that was one of his minor infractions,,, but I loved him and he was my best buddy.
