My first dog of my own was a beagle/border collie mix.
Winston will always be my favorite dog. She graduated from college with me, moved into my first house with me, served as the “flower dog” in my wedding, and helped welcome home my two children. She also became the logo dog for Cold Nose Lodge. Since then, I have adopted three beagles (and three black lab mixes). I also foster several dogs each year for SOS Beagle Rescue.
Everyone has a favorite dog breed. Mine is the beagle.Beagles are adorable, stubborn, great to snuggle, good with kids, and yes, have a voice. Not all beagles like to sing. My beagle Blue loves to explore the backyard and tell us all about the paths of the squirrels that have visited. My other beagle Betty would much rather lounge around on our king bed, or snuggle with the kids on the couch. Both are REALLY into food.
Blue would like to roam the woods behind our house and does occasionally sneak out for an adventure. Her predecessor, Bruno, had the same wanderlust. Even with that strong desire to see the world, they both loved a good nap in a cozy bed or on the couch at home. Bruno enjoyed watching the Hallmark channel with his Nana when she watched him.
Here are a few things I’ve learned about beagles over the years:
We often have beagle foster dogs at Cold Nose Lodge, and you can visit Betty or Blue in the lobby most weekdays at the lodge, too.
