      Thanks, Im leaving right now to check for him again. He did this once to me before. It was alot warmer out though and it was 5 years ago. Thought he learned his lesson!

        Lost Beagle

        Sure hope you find him. did you leave a hat or article of clothing for scent? That usually works.

          Well someone found him last night up by the glenn parks interchange and turned him into animal control. Got the call on my way back out to the slough. Animal control saw my ad on craigslist and called.

          Yeah the last time I lost him, I left his kennel out there and a jacket. He stayed there until I picked him up the next day. I only had a peice of my clothing yesterday.

          From what I can gather I think when he came back, a group of snowmachines came by and he followed them as far as he could wich was the highway before he lost track of them.

          Hes used to seeing me on a snowmachine and following me on it.

          Anyway, dang miracle he didnt get hit on the road. Animal control said he had traffic backed up some. Im really happy that there are still good people out there willing to stop and take the time to help a dog out.

              Yeah it is great news. That dog is a horrible pet. But hes got a funny personality, hes a great hunter and hes my buddy! The wife im sure is thrilled to have him back:rolleyes: Her hatred for that dog is probably what keeps him alive in this world! Wife just cant catch a break when it comes to his demise.

              Im amazed hes made it this long. Ive always told myself to be prepared for the day he doesnt come back. But I tell ya, I was in sad place at 3 in the morning out there with a flashlight this morning.

              Im grateful to the people who stopped and took the time to get him to a safe place.

              Its funny, I was actually videotaping him hunting yesterday. First time Ive done it. Ill edit the video and shorten it some and post it.

                Glad some good folks found your pup and got him back to you. You must have had a rough night last night. About three years ago our beagles got lost in the fog and spent about a day and a half on the run. They turned up very tired at a neighbor's house. They seem to stick closer now!

                  HAH,saw that tired beagle,3 trucks were pulled over and a tired looking snow covered beagle was plodding around the drivers side door of the last truck.Fortunately by the time I was there(2 or 3 rows back),everybody was cool about being patient.
                  It was chilly willy too! He wasnt exactly perky by that time(530pm or so),
                  not lecturing,but from my experience you have to anticipate a dogs behavior. You gits what you gits,and it helps to understand there personallity's strong points/limitations.

                  glad you scored

                    Yeah hes still draggin butt around the house. I'm suprised he wouldnt come that day. Hes getting older, and if the conditions are such that tracking is hard he'll give up a little sooner. I didnt think the running was that great personally. Guess he thought different!

                    Anyhow, right now Im in debate mode between e-collar to try and instill a little obedience or a tracking system.

                    I like the idea of training him to come, and yes with him an e-collar will be necassary. He knows how to come, he just shuts down in the obeying department when hes hunting. That would be convenient when its time to leave.

                    I also like the idea of the tracking, cause sometimes he can go along ways really fast. And hed be out of range of voice, or if he hasnt barked for awhile I get panicky and I like to know where he is to make sure hes not in trouble. He only barks when He is hot on the trail. Hes real honest if hes got something or not. Thats why he can sometimes go along ways without barking.

                    With my budget I think I can get both, a new tracking unit and a used e-collar. But I hate the idea of weighing him down with 2 collars.

                      I was reading this thread all choked up hoping you would find your buddy. I know the feeling of missing your pupper dog and its not a good one. I was a sad sight when I was looking for my buddy boots who took off and ended up just coming back after a few days... Crazy dogs.

                        Wait a minute!!

                        We're talking about a beagle here, and they view us humans mostly as distractions from their real business in life. We raised them for many years, and still miss them even as our lifestyle precludes starting over.

                        Here's a stunt we learned from other dog handlers, and darned if it didn't work every single time we needed to leave before the dogs agreed to join us: Always carry a baggy of dry dogfood in your pocket. If you have to leave, lay your hunting coat on the ground with the open baggy of dogfood on it. Usually that evening, or sometimes the following morning, the dog will be there waiting when you return. And wondering where the heck you have been, and what took you so long, of course. Darned beagles anyway!!!!!

                              Ha that is funny. Man we need some different topics in here to break the beagle monotony.
