Welcome

It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

A Lotta Action

Running Grounds at the World Hunt
The best part of going to the World Hunt is visiting with friends and fellow beaglers. It's 3 or 4 days of nonstop dog talk so for a beagle addict like me it is perfect. When a conversation starts, you never know where it will go, but below is one I had with a guy, and long time beagler, Bob Lahti.

Beagler:  The next round will be tough.
Me:  Really?
Beagler: Yep, got two *** ***** (kennel name) dogs in it.
Me: Well, it will be ugly
Beagler: What?
Me: They will be rough and they might be hard to beat, but it will be ugly for sure if there are two *** ***** dogs in it.
Beagler:  They aren't that rough.
Me:  Well, there's always a first time.
Me:  What do you think Bob?
Bob Lahti:  Be a lotta action.

If you have never met Bob Lahti, he is a gentleman and an all around good guy. He also knows rabbit dogs and always runs some good hounds. He taught me something at the World. From now on when I see a rough, blow up the race, I have to have the front, skirting, cheating dog, I'll know what to say: He's got a lotta action. And if it's one of mine, I'll have the perfect description of his running style.   :)
