    We did it!

    I am proud to announce that these two are now Guiness World Record Holders!

    Today the 2019 Beagle attempt at the record for the largest dog walk by a single breed was added onto the Guiness World Records website - disappointingly just a little too late to make this year's annual, which was on sale for Christmas!
    Guiness have spent eight months deliberating over the videos, proofs of breed purity, and observance of the rules. They have reduced our claim of 1034 to 1029 dogs. (The rules were very strict and covered a host of minor things such as maximum lead length, and not changing handlers). All concerned are cock-a-hoop tonight, not least at the fact that our two attempts raised just short of £10,000 for Beagle Welfare and Unite to Care - which deals with the rehoming of ex-lab animals.
    This year's event will probably be a celebration, as Beagle owners seem to resemble their hounds in only being happy when they are in packs!

    Taken at a show. Eddie's face saying, 'I want to go home', and Merry is trying so hard to stay in the position where she has been placed.

    Wow that’s exciting news !
    What a lovely photo
    My sister had a beagle when I was young, I didn’t know much about dogs then, my memory of “Dan “ wasn’t the best I’m afraid...he constantly escaped and he never seemed to get tired !
    I wish he was still around I would have been able to help her more now, with knowledge about the breed !

    Beagles had their last wave of popularity in the 60's - 70's. A friend of mine who worked in breeding kennels at that time says nobody ever came back for a second Beagle - but I think it is just a jibe. There are certainly lots of crazy multi-Beagle owners around at present.
    Everybody seems to have a tale about their, or their relatives, Beagle, and the majority of them are hilarious, I sometimes think about compiling a fundraising book of Funny and Clever Beagles, but never seem to get round to it.
