You all know I’ve been tempted to get a puppy. Can you guess how hard it was for me when someone I knew had beagle puppies?? SUPER HARD!!
You might remember a month or so ago I had thought I would get a rescue beagle but then someone else got the dog. Then I had a lead on a beagle puppy from a rescue group. I debated and debated on getting the puppy. In the end, I didn’t.
I made the decision to put more work and money into Rosie. It was the right decision. She is a much happier dog.
She adores the in-ground fencing. All of us love the inground fencing. We love it so much that Betsy, Kalissa’s dog, is getting inground fencing on Monday. YA-HOO!!
Rosie and I started dog obedience classes and she is doing well. She’s not the star of the class but she’s holding her own and does everything she’s asked. She doesn’t love the car rides to class but she loves the class. I plan to continue on to the next level of classes with her. I’ve been so busy and haven’t done as much follow-up training at home with her but, she’s still going great.
I’ll admit though, that another dog is still on my mind…not front and center like it was…but, on my mind. Imagine my surprise when I found out that one of Buck’s classmates that lives in the area had beagle puppies. I didn’t even know that they had beagles.
I ended up inquiring about them. Ah… So tempting.
Here they are…all boys. There was one girl in the litter but she is already spoken for.
Aren’t they so cute??
You can see why… I think they are so tempting. Cute, cute, cute!!
Typically I’ve always gotten female dogs.
I know puppyhood doesn’t last forever but oh my. These are the cutest.
I start in on a whole litany of ideas of why I should get a puppy…
-it’s Summer and it’s the perfect time for a puppy the grandkids are here they would love it
-it’s Summer and house training is so much easier
-Rosie would like a friend
-I know the people and know these pups are being raised by a great family and have tons of kid contact. The owner’s boys are 5 and 9.
-I’d like another friend
I thought about going to look at them but have refrained. I’m too afraid I’d say yes. I’m that close to getting one.
The owner contacted me and asked if I’d made a decision on getting one. I ended up saying:
“The kid in me is screaming YES but the adult in me is saying NO. Unfortunately, I have to listen to the adult.”
AH!! I’d still really love one.
The little pups have the coloring I love.
They don’t have a full saddle-backed like all of my previous beagles…
The pups would be ready for pick up on July 4th. A puppy would really give my life some BANG! More exciting than fireworks for sure!!
They are only asking $250 for an unpapered puppy. That is very reasonable. Oh my. Are any of you looking for a beagle puppy that is reasonably priced, kid-friendly, home raised, and super cute?? Please come and get them so that I don’t.
Seriously…I am tempted. Seriously, if you are looking for a pup, I will happily share their contact information with. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep an eye open on the blog. Who knows. I might just get a puppy yet. The child in me seems to be screaming louder than the adult in me right now. HA!!
…and yes, I do know a puppy is a lot of work…and expense but I also know the flip side…LOTS OF LOVE!!
