Ok chaps, after picking your brains.
After living on a farm all my life, n always bein around dogs, the mrs has raised the point of us gettin a dog in our new house. Now I'm all for it, but have taken a bit of time to assess what may be suitable or unsuitable. I'm not keen on the idea of leaving a dog home alone all day, personal opinion, so want something small enough to mooch round with me at work (I also work on a farm) jump in the car n go everywhere basically.
So after batting a fee ideas around, she suggests a beagle. Now having never considered one before, and not knowing much about them, I did a bit of pokin round Ont net n quite liked what I saw.
So now I'm after some opinions from people who have had a beagle, know one or have seen them work as to what they are like? I've read they were initially used for tracking hares and rabbits and can now be used on deer? This true, anyone any experience of this?
Many thanks in advance to anyone who can offer a few pointers
