Re: Gone With the Wind

I've felt the same way Newt. I'll go to this board to see what's been posted and sometimes it will go a week without anything new coming up. It wasn't that long ago that this board was a hub for beagle news,discussions,pedigree searches,hunt schedules and results and just some general yada yada. Now...

Re: Female's heat cycle

I think the biggest issue you guys have is old bitches,especially the ones that have never been bred or had a litter before. Put in human terms,you're talking about breeding grannies ! As bitches get older their heat cycles often become irregular and sometimes the heat is not accompanied by ovulatio...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

mybeagles For over 20 years I hunted coon hounds for fur and in competition.Mostly just Nite Hunts but did frequently enter a dog on the bench. When showing a coon hound you stack the dog so he is right up on his toes,belly tucked up,slight roach back,head held high and tail curved over his back. I ...

Re: Need a class for oversize dogs?

Went to run dogs for a week with my good friend Jonah Staten in Ohio about a year ago.While there I pointed to one of my females and asked "what do you think she measures?" He said" let's see I've got a measuring stand right here". Stand looked professionally built and when I asked how accurate it w...

Re: Run to catch

Always been a lot of talk on this board about what to feed the beagles. Any of you feed garden produce? I have a garden that basically we grow just to eat out of and give away to friends and neighbors as we don't freeze or can. I feed my beagles a lot of cooked green beans,summer squash,beets and co...

Re: 4 Male Pups For Sale - Joe Blue/Dora (Buckshot, Blueberry Will) Breeding

Glad Melissa's on the road to recovery. My young Queenie female out of Bomber and Tess is now 16 months old and making a very nice dog.There's times she can lead the race on her kennel mates which ain't too shabby! Bomber is doing fine and getting run in Ohio.Last time I talked with Jonah he had bre...

Hey Ed Saw this post so thought I'd take the opportunity to say hi to you and your wife. Hope all is well with you folks and the beagle hounds. Just got in from running mine.It's been so hot that it had been 10 days or so since they'd been out.Had a big rain come through last night that cooled it of...

Re: Puppy vaccines

At 8 weeks I'd assume that she had her first shot at 6 weeks.I would give another at 9 weeks,12 weeks,16 weeks and then a booster at a year old. Rabies shot around 4-6 months old.
Keep her wormed too.
Enjoy !

Re: best time to raise a litter

Thanks Dan I was just sitting here and got to thinking. We've been doing this hound dog thing together for a long time haven't we? I think we must have met and started doing some hunting together and with Frank about 1978? You've got a better memory for those things than I do. Very much looking forw...

Re: best time to raise a litter

Don't get the idea that I take my young dogs and" throw" them to the wolves. I only run her with her three kennel mates who I do consider to be " correct" dogs. I don't take her with them until she's physically able to keep up and mentally able and ability able to contribute. Do I expect her to outs...

Re: July pups

Get some empty 2 liter soda bottles.Fill them with water and freeze them.Put the frozen bottles in with them.If you have a half dozen or so you can just rotate them as they melt.This will help some. Have put bags of ice in my dog boxes when hauling in hot weather. Makes a difference.

Re: best time to raise a litter

Bowguy I'm not a trialer so don't really care about their derby status. I've got three females in my kennel right now that were born in Feb., March and April. As I mentioned, this is when I like to have them arrive. I know that all dogs are different.Some start very early,others much later. It's als...

Re: best time to raise a litter

I like breeding in the winter for Spring pups. This means that by gun season the pups are of an age where they have probably already been started and are ready to participate in their first season. If you live up north in snow country it's going to be tough getting any time on those pups born in the...
