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 . . .

This Summer Weather

Poppy Walks a Track up the Road
I was watching the news and the weather came on. The Meteorologist said, this is the 19th day in a row that it has rained, but it it about to get better. I know you are ready for some sunshine and we are going to get it. It won't rain for the next two days. I am sure viewers everywhere were celebrating. For beaglers in Ohio though, June has been fabulous!

All of the rain has kept the water holes full. It has made for good scenting conditions. The temperatures have been cooler than normal. All of the factors that make running dogs good have made June a great month to run. Day after day, the dogs have benefited from the weather and chases have been super.

As I listened to the forecast I thought back to today's running. The Old Man and I ran about 4 hours and the dogs never went 5 minutes without a rabbit. Tony had a great day and that helped, but it was cool and wet, and all the dogs ran well. We mostly just sat in our chairs and enjoyed listening to the beagle choir sing.  There was music the entire time and it sure sounded sweet.

I ran Poppy, JJ, Silly, and Dilly. The Old Man ran Tony, Chip, Dixie, and Dissident.

  1. It's always great to see what you all are into. I've been running Fury just about everyday since I got him from you. Now I'm just looking for a teammate for him! Looking forward to reading your next blog. Hope you all have a Great 4th!
