“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” ― Josh Billings
Beagles are one of the most popular and beloved dog breeds around the world. Snoopy, perhaps the world’s most famous dog, is a Beagle.
Who could resist those adorable doe like eyes and cute floppy ears?
Monmon is a 2 year old, tri-colored Beagle. I adopted her from a friend of mine last year. She was originally named Tequila. How it evolved to Monmon, I don’t really know.
Beagles do well indoors as long as they are properly exercised and taken for long walks daily.
This one especially, gets really excited when she sees her leash. Wags tail nonstop.
And after a long walk, she goes straight into the house and cozies up on the couch.
Beagles are brave, intelligent, and social dogs that are good with children and known for their loving, tolerant, sweet, and gentle temperament.
They are good with other dogs, but not good with other pets. Beagles love to be part of a pack but they do not take to non-canine companions, unless they are the human kind.
Beagles will also do anything for food. They just love food and will eat almost anything.
You will find Monmon beside the dining table waiting during meal times, NO miss! And she will totally ignore you when there is food around somewhere…
But this is to an advantage. Beagles are intelligent but hard to train. They are known to be really stubborn but since they will do anything for food, Beagle owners could use this as a training tool. I taught Monmon how to sit in just one meal time.
Beagles love to sleep. They could sleep for hours. And this one snores really loud! (I’ve actually recorded her snoring, I just don’t know how to upload it here 😦)
And although Beagles are naturally sociable and playful, clever and responsive, doing the same routine over and over again will get them bored. Well what do you expect, we human beings experience that too.
To sum it up all, I was really glad to have adopted Monmon. She has become a stress reliever, a good walking companion and a great distraction. She has added so much fun into our home, the kids really enjoy her and Marla (our Chihuahua mix) even gained a best friend.
