Life With Dogs

I put this page together to take a look at the funny side of living with dogs. My first dog Piper was an only child until I got Asia, so we became a family of three. It can be crazy, it can be fun, it can be funny, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Check out the early experiences with my pups in the links titled Volume 1, Volume 2, etc. but lately I’ve been posting random stuff my dogs get into.

  1. Am I right in saying you have beagles too? Or are they foxhounds/harriers? Either way they’re cute, the one on the left’s eyes are extraordinary, never seen blue ones on that kind of dog before.


    1. I do! Well, one is full beagle, the other (with the blue eyes) is a mix of beagle/blue heeler/labrador. The beagle is about 25 pounds and the mix is just over 30 pounds, so they’re not big like fox hounds. Do you think beagles in the US look the same as beagles in England? Yours has a different look than mine, but not sure if that’s just a breed difference, or difference in location also. The blue eyed dog, when she was a puppy the lady said her eyes may turn to brown as she grows up, but I’m so glad they didn’t!


      1. Yeah the blue eyes are gorgeous, I only really see them on huskies/weimaraners usually. I think they’re probably similar in the two countries but there are two branches in the beagle breed; show beagles (like yours) which are a bit shorter and more square in their build and head, and working/farm beagles (like mine) which are taller with longer, more hound like features.


      2. I had no idea that there were 2 different kinds. Thanks for the info! When I get home I’ll tell Piper she’s a show beagle, she’ll like hearing that. She’s already so prissy (unless there’s a rabbit nearby), this will make her feel like a real princess!
