I wonder why are there always very few beagles attending gathering ? Like the last one, I saw that theres only 3 beagles under the beagle gang.
As for this gathering on June 15, is anyone going to bring their beagle to the gathering? I am thinking of bringing Snowy on 15 June for the first time gathering too, and I would like to meet more beagle. So I'm asking whether anyone from 'hound' is going for this gathering.
I used to go for the past gatherings but have been quite busy lately, so cannot go . Hopefully 15 June is ok for me. But I would encourage you to just go for the gatherings (if you have time) and socialise snowy with other breeds (and don't forget to talk to the their human owners too, who are all very nice people !!!). Hopefully one fine day, we can see a bigger beagle pack. That would be nice.
Like Ivan I too used to be at the gatherings. But of late all the dates seems to clash with other things..like traveling out of town etc. Hope that I can get to see you at the gathering soon.
Many doggie cheers,

2 of the lovely beagles (Archie & Snuffy) from the last gathering belong to kbs . I haven't had the chance the meet the 3rd beagle. Actually if you have time, you might want to drop by the Padang Merbok (Jln Gasing) this coming Sunday where the Canine Good Citizen tests will be held. Many people bring their dogs there to socialise and to watch the training sessions and tests. You might also be able to see lots of beagles there. It's quite fun. If you don't know where Pdg Merbok is, here are the directions:
Say, you come from PJ, with University Hospital on your left. Go straight past the traffic lights onto Jalan gasing.
Go straight along Jln Gasing. All the way !!!!!! until you reach a roundabout.
Pdg Merbok is just on the left of the roundabout. You can see a lot of bird poles on the field because they use it for bird competitions too.
My doodle and I will be coming for the gathering but doodle is not a beagle. He is a basset hound which falls under the category hound too. So i hope that adds another figure to hound. Elly owns a bassie too. Do you anyone else? It is so sad to know only 2 of us have bassie.
Hello,are you Rachel ? Yes I did went for the gathering, but only stay there for an hour because Snowy was so afraid of sunshine, she insisted to leave or else stay under the shady tree. I dont have chance to talk with someone long because of her. Thus I have to leave earlier. I think I did saw Doodle the cute basset hound. Guess I will be there for the next gathering, and I surely will let Snowy to make fren with Doodle, as I always tell her Basset hound is like her cousin (since they look quiet alike)
Hello Yes, sometimes people call me rachel. I don't remember your name? I assumed that you weren't in the hound group photo taking as well? So this coming 5th we will take photos and beagle and basset hound friendship tie. ehhehe
I have a beagle too (2 months old), is it suitable for him to join for this coming 5th July? Just ask some advise from you both. And of cause my Popeye wants to meet Snowy and Doodle as friends. He is quite lonely at home.

Hello there, Nice to meet another hound lover. I think it would be great if you could bring your dog along. They will love to socialise! Well, has he finished his jabs? As for doodle, I waited till he finished his jab and brought him to the gathering. Can't wait to see you!
Ahaha, dun call me madam, I may be younger than you are! Yes, you should listen to Rachel and come and join us even if Popeye cant. I will be going for the dogathon on 6th July but I will not bring Snowy too because she is too afraid of sun-tanning.
Hello alice, Are you the one who sent me an ICQ message? I will be going there about 9am on Saturday. It depends what time it ends. Some might leave early and some might stay on. As for sunday, I m not too sure whether I am going or not cause doodle doesn't really want to run. I might go there just to 'look see look see'. I think it starts at 7am if you want to participate and 9 am if u just want to look. See u there!
Dont be sad...u can still bring ur precious new beagle pup to a puppy gathering as long as he has done the 1st jab of vaccination. What u should do is just hold him at all times when there are other adult dogs around and let him loose when the situation is safe. You can hold him and let him sniff up to other puppies of similar sizes but make sure they have no further contact for safety measures. Just give full attention to him when he plays with kids and make sure he doesnt lick around any dangerous object or the fingers of small kids. You should let other ppl or kids pet ur beagle so that he will get used to it and wont turn hostile when ppl pet him next time when he grows up. The reason why u should bring him along to such gathering is to familiarize him with outdoor surrounding and i always say that proper socialising determines the disposition of ur adult dog in the future so make sure u expose him to lots of new things as beagles have huge curiosity. yah one more thing u must buy a collar for him as soon as possible so that he will get used to wearing a collar if not next time he wont let u walk him with a collar and leash.
he have completed his first jab and is going to take his 2nd jab on july 17. he loves to sniff around ( beagle behaviour) and if i hold him in my arms, he won't stay there for long.. he will do whatever to get out of my arms and get to the ground. so i might as well not to carry him go out. wait till he take all jabs. hehe.. i can go out and go for gathering withouth him first.... i bought him a collar now (string) he seems to hate the collar because he won't let me to wear it on him and he bites it...
