UPDATED: He won Best in Show.  First time ever for a beagle. 

There hasn’t been a beagle winner since 1939.  You know why?  Cause they’re the biggest pain in the ass dog you ever saw in your whole friggin life, that’s why.

I’m sure Moses will be insufferable now.  Which is to say “normal”.

p.s.  I know that was you Bart

If the summich can’t run a rabbit, he ain’t worth spit.

2. Moses, the floppy-eared lovable beagle - February 12, 2008

I’m not Bart.

I’m Moses. The Beagle.

Hey, Dave! It’s raining.

*I’m pissing on your leg*

4. Casey the Three-legged Crimefighter - February 12, 2008

Congrats, Moses!

Yooo da Dawg!

5. Bandit fteh WOnder Dog from Winterset - February 12, 2008

Shout out to Casey and Moses too!!! HOWYADOING!!! Its cold, snowy and its hard to find a place to pee and poop outside right now — Been out to the farm to play with my friend Jack the black lab and as always a blask!!

We are watching the show right now and I think we figured out what I might be — besides “The Wonder Dog” you have all grown to love.

The Canaan Dog is the natural breed of Israel. Here is a link to the AKC web page: http://www.akc.org/breeds/canaan_dog/index.cfm

If you look at the picuture of Black and White dog at the top and the one entered in the show — Bandit could be a brother (minus about 15 pounds!!!).

We hope the poodles don’t win and are cheering for the beagle or the Australian Shepherd — that dog looks liek Bandits friend Inca!!! I really liked the Neapolitan Mastiff as it was Hagrids dog Fang in Harry Potter movies.

6. Bandit the Wonder Dog from Winterset - February 12, 2008

YAH FOR THE BEAGLE UNO!!!! WIns it all!!!!
MOSES are you related? If so I would see if you can get a cut of the treats and toys!!!

7. Moses, the floppy-eared lovable beagle - February 12, 2008

Bandit, you’re a shitty typist.

BTW, were you named after your owner’s semi-automatic pistol?

We watched the last hour of Westminster last night, then this morning Uno was on Fox & Friends morning show.

Beagles have to be the most annoying dogs ever. Holy crap. I’d never stop beating that thing.
I’d kick its ass from sunup to sundown and occasionally in the middle of the night, until my kicking leg wore out, and then I’d get a crutch and beat it with the crutch.

Dave, man. You are a better person than me if Moses is still alive.

9. Dave in Texas - February 13, 2008

I’ve said for 3 years if he wasn’t so cute he’d be dead.

10. kevlarchick - February 13, 2008

I would vote for Bandit or Casey in a heartbeat. Sweethearts.

Beagles aren’t so bad. But they seem to need lots of attention and exercise and discipline. I couldn’t own one.

11. lauraw - February 13, 2008

they seem to need lots of attention and exercise and discipline CRUEL AND VIGOROUS BEATINGS.

Fixed.

12. Cathy - February 13, 2008

When Michael’s family owned beagles they were kept outside as hunting dogs. My family had always had house pets, so I’d try to pet them and relate to them like house pets.

My hands would stink from the natural oils in their coats and they took no interest in being part of the “pack” with humans n the house. It was annoying and I knew then there would be no beagle for a house pet.

13. daveintexas - February 13, 2008

I couldn’t own one.

That’s because nobody can. You don’t own a beagle, it friggin owns you.

14. Cathy - February 13, 2008

Have I mentioned how funny the movie, “Best in Show” is?

Is this what dog show owners are like?

Here’s the lost dog toy clip.

Here’s the queen bed scene.

I love this movie. We own it.

15. Cathy - February 13, 2008

Well put, Dave.

17. daveintexas - February 13, 2008

If beagles stay inside mostly, you pretty much can avoid the smelly. He gets a bath once a month (I insist) and he usually smells ok.

Way better than I would if I only bathed once a month.

Oh, god. We had a beagle when I was a kid. Maggie. Hateful stinky dog.

When my brother was a toddler, my dad had a big Irish setter that was constantly knocking my brother over. So one day when he was at work, my mother sent the setter to that proverbial farm upstate (I think she really did, though. Mom? Mom?). Dad came home to find a beagle puppy in its place.

First thing the dog did was run away. My dad chased her halfway across the county and when he finally caught up with her, she bit him. It went downhill from there.

Most nights, Maggie lay on the landing and bayed in her sleep. I used to dream of getting up and murdering her.

22. kerri - February 13, 2008

you all are stupid. you obviously know nothing of beagles or are just completely jealous of the win. I have had all types of dogs and most of all Beagles. I have had them for hunting and also as family pets and they do very well at both. If you have owned one and had a bad experience it probably only reflects the person who owns it. Those of you who have had mean durrogatory things to say should all rot in hell for even being alive enough to own anything but your own ass.

23. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

^jealous?

Who cares?

And nice to see you spread the love.

24. kerri - February 13, 2008

spread the love to who? people who want to beat and murder a dog and are all pissed off because this particular breed won. I spread love to mature people

25. lauraw - February 13, 2008

kerri, I was joking about the dog abuse! I own two dogs myself and would never abuse them. I very rarely beat them, and when I do, I use a very small stick or a short leather strap.

I repeat, in case you didn’t get it the first time, I DO NOT abuse my dogs.

26. Cathy - February 13, 2008

Kerri, How nice of you to join our silly conversation.

Given your intensity about beagles, I sense you love them dearly. Maybe you are right that those of us who have had negative experiences with beagles are “stupid” or inept with this kind of animal. Maybe we’re just morons.

We’re just having fun here.

Maybe you could consider chilling a bit.

BTW — “durrogatory” is correctly spelled “derogatory.”

But most of us won’t hold that against you, sweetie.

27. Kowboy - February 13, 2008

22. kerri – February 13, 2008

I spread love to mature people

By acting like a immature little brat? Impressive.

That said, I’ve owned several different breeds of dog in my life, including mutts. Some were good, some weren’t. Had 2 beagles. One kept running away and eventually got run over, the other was a fine rabbit hunter and good companion. Lineage has a lot to do with how good a dog is. I’ve known of breeders who inbred the same line too much until almost every dog from it was stark raving mad. If purebred dogs are bred properly, which most are, they make great pets for the most part. I have a Jack Russell now and wouldn’t trade him for anything.

28. Sobek - February 13, 2008

“Those of you who have had mean durrogatory things to say should all rot in hell…”

The disconnect is so rich and creamy, I’m going to spread it on my pancakes.

29. daveintexas - February 13, 2008

You know what I do with rich and creamy…

30. Cathy - February 13, 2008

When I was a young our next door neighbors owned a beagle named Sam. Sam was charming and great with the kids, but as soon as they opened the door to greet guests, Sam would bolt.

One time we went to a party at their house with about 50 folks there. Michael and I were newlyweds and Michael wanted to be a good guest and make a good impression on some folks that were great friends of ours. When Sam bolted, Michael assumed that it was his fault and began to canvas the neighborhood in the cold snowy weather searching for Sam. About 40 minutes later, poor Michael shows up at the neighbor’s door and apologizes for not finding Sam.

The neighbors laughed and felt bad that Michael worked so hard. They said that he need not worry because Sam would come home when he felt like it. About 10 minutes later, guess who was at the front door wanting to come in. Yep! Sam!

31. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

22: I never advocated beating a dog, and none of the people here have either.

You remind me of the nutbag dog people who tried to shame me because I could no longer handle our dog when it became seriously ill. This was shortly after my daughter was born, and the greyhound lady had the temerity to say, “You would spend your last penny on your daughter, wouldn’t you?”

The stupidity just left me speechless.

32. Cathy - February 13, 2008

spread the love to who?

Kerri,
While I’m in the mood for gentle correction,
the correct grammar would be: “spread the love to whom” dear.

33. Michael - February 13, 2008

You know what I do with rich and creamy…

No, and I don’t want to.

34. Bart - February 13, 2008

spread the love to who? people who want to beat and murder a dog

Hi kerri, with an i!

Fuck off.

The only thing I hate more than animals are people who love animals.

Do you know what I do to dogs that come onto my property?

I eat them.

35. Michael - February 13, 2008

Bart, Kerri sounds about 13 years old. She’s not going to get your humor.

36. Cathy - February 13, 2008

Wow! What rich stuff we have here!

I spread love to mature people

That’s not love at all.

Real love is unconditional, babe.

37. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

^is that agape love or eors love?

38. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

I meant eros

39. Bart - February 13, 2008

kerri is not 13. Sadly, she’s quite the grown-up. At least 35, I’d say.

It doesn’t matter. This is a NC-17 blog, right?

40. Cathy - February 13, 2008

13 years old? Yep.

I was guessing 11-13.

41. Bart - February 13, 2008

And who said I was trying to be humorous?

42. Cathy - February 13, 2008

@#35 agape = Love for the sake of another.

Eros isn’t really love. It’s definition is love for the sake of oneself,
which isn’t really love at all.

43. Cathy - February 13, 2008

BTW Eros “love” is different than erotic love,
even though its root comes from that Greek word.

Dog is a fine meal.

Bart, let’s do dinner.

46. Lipstick - February 13, 2008

Yesterday Mr. Lipstick persuaded me to get two more ferrets. He had been wanting more.

He took me to the store “just to look” and stood back and waited as i fell in love with two little furry kits. He knew I wouldn’t be able to walk away without them.

The sneaky man knows me too well.

47. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

Cathy:

I recalled those terms from my Jesuit training. The eros one always was a funny one to throw out there.

48. Cathy - February 13, 2008

Lipstick- Are you a fan of Rodolfo in the movie “Along Came Polly?”

49. Cathy - February 13, 2008

EddieBuddy

You are so sweet. I’m sorry about how that wretched woman treated you when you felt the need to put your sweet pet down. I’m fighting off tears. We’ve had to put several dogs to sleep and I still feel frustration and sadness about it.

From what I’ve taken in here, you are a good man and a great father.

50. Bart - February 13, 2008

While watching American Gangster the other night, I heard this song.

Great song from the Black 70’s.

If you’re in the mood for some good mellow disco beats from the 70’s, check out Bobby Womack or The Crusaders on youtube.

51. kevlarchick - February 13, 2008

“just to look…”

Riiiiiight.

Congrats on your growing family, Lipstick.

52. Lipstick - February 13, 2008

Lipstick- Are you a fan of Rodolfo in the movie “Along Came Polly?”

I haven’t seen it, but thanks for the reminder. I’ll go rent it.

Thanks KC. The family is complete now — no more pets.

*Must stay away from shelters and stores*

53. Kowboy - February 13, 2008

Lipstick, I used to have 4 ferrets. Loved having them in the house. The only problem I really ever had was keeping my cigs. The albino loved to steal and hide them. People who didn’t know about them freaked when they just appeared out of nowhere. But the kids grew up, and time took its inevitable toll. Sometimes I think about getting more, but I just couldn’t take proper care of them right now. Maybe someday…..

54. eddiebear - February 13, 2008

Cathy:

I don’t know about me. I’m a wreck. I just try to make sure my daughter does well.

As for the dog, it wasn’t as if I didn’t do anything for her. At my daughter’s Baptism Party, the dog was outside and ran up the concrete steps too fast and halfway slid off. She gashed up her leg something fierce, requiring a lot of $ to pay for surgery and medical care on her leg.

As for her illness, it just got to the point that the care with no hope for recovery long or near term just made my decision more clear cut.

55. AustinBeagleOwner - February 21, 2008

I own not one, but two beagles. Actually no one owns anyone. We have a close pack and I have well asserted myself as the leader of it. I have found though that females have the negative tendencies you have described thus far while the males tend to be as eager to please as any other obediant breed. The problem is that beagles are incredibly in tune with their owners and in today’s America, people are so anxious and overwhelmed that any dog will feed off a person’s negative energy – naturally energetic beagles will react and act out to this. It takes a strong, confident, calm leader to take care of the strong, confident beagle.

56. Bart - February 21, 2008

i lol’d

especially at the last two sentences

57. Mrs. Peel - February 21, 2008

BTW — “durrogatory” is correctly spelled “derogatory.”

But most of us won’t hold that against you, sweetie.

Well, *I* will. Who’s with me?!?

58. Bart - February 21, 2008

There are two r’s in derrogatory.

59. Mackenzie - March 8, 2008

I think Uno is a very nice beagle and he is a very cute little baby.
