    Hi all, we are due to collect our first Beagle pup soon and feel the info and support from this forum will be valuable to us. Hopefully going forward we can also add value to other dog owners.

    Oh yes, we are always happy to offer words of wisdom, in exchange for puppy pictures of course!

    Welcome! I can't wait to see some pics of your new furry friend and read of your adventures. I fostered a beagle a few years ago and just loved that dog, she was so sweet!

    Thank you, a friend suggested a couple (Buddy and Cooper). We are unsure as will be selecting the pup in a couple of weeks.

    Ignore friend. Two pups together of any breed are about twenty times more work and hassle.

    Hello and welcome - beagles are lovely little hounds.

    Hi and welcome, have fun choosing a name.
    We chose the name of our pup and the breeder started training her what her name was, went I went to collect her the breeder called her by her name and she came running

    have you decided on a girl or boy pup, or aren’t they born yet?

    I read that as the friend suggesting a couple of names, not a couple of pups.

    @The Smifs , a good test is thinking what names you'd be happy shouting across a park.

    For example when I have to call for my dog, Timber, in the woods; people suddenly look rather anxious.

    One of the dogs I used to walk was called 'Pork Chops' (he was a springer), I didn't fancy calling 'Porky' across the park incase anyone took offence:eek::rolleyes: so used to call him 'Chops' instead!:D

    Thank you for the kind advice, it was just a couple of name ideas, definitely only getting one as you say two Beagles is too much for us to give a fair start to.
    Kind Regards.

    Yes you are right and what an interesting situation if I don't think the name through. I'll think carefully, cheers.

    Hi, that's excellent. No not decided yet but we are going to see them in 3 weeks time when they will be 6 weeks old. Probably get a boy if available.

    Children of the 70s (like us two) remember The Banana Splits and if we got a beagle pup we would name him Fleegle.

    I wept when the Banana Splits stopped!

    I was born in the 60s though, perhaps I was immature for my age :p

    Blimey that takes me back a bit, I hope it doesn't get as big as Fleegle.

    When we adopted Mabel she was of a sizeable volume, quite overweight for a whippet, in excess of 19kg. When we sent pictures of her to a friend the response was “What a porker”. As a token of endearment I have called her “Porker”. However once on a walk a lady of size glanced at me when I used the expression in complete innocence. Also in complete innocence I hastened to explain that I was talking to my dog. With the benefit of hindsight I don’t think I made the issue any better. She is now “Mabel” whenever we’re outside.
