    I was working in the yard yesterday. Normally the dogs are running all over the place and "helping" me dig in the garden. But my Beagle ACD mix Buddy was just sitting in the sun, I walked over to him and saw the squirrel in front of him. He was very proud of it. I don't know when he caught it, I didn't hear him make any noise.

    If he wasn't afraid of loud noises I'd take him out squirrel hunting this fall.

    I'd show you the pictures, but you probably don't want to see them. I set up one of those 15' round 3' deep pools from Walmart last weekend for the kids. I was in it last night with them when my other dog Lola kept jumping up on the side to see what we were doing. So I grabbed her and brought her into the pool with us. That was a mistake. The kids say I look like I lost a fight with the comic book character Wolverine!

    Anyhow Buddy hates the water and I don't think I'll be getting Lola near it anytime soon either.

    Buddy is a very cool dog, he hates rabbits and squirrels. Weighs about 30 lbs and stands a little over a foot high at the shoulder. He can jump a 6' high privacy fence without a running start, just walks to the base of the fence and jumps up. I've seen him run along the top rail of the fence chasing squirrels.

    I gotta work with him on the noise thing because he would be a great squirrel hunting dog.

    :rofl:


    Buddy doesn't read to well. Can you put that in a .wav file and I'll play it for him?


    Oh and while you are at it, tell him to quit letting his sister hump him, it's just weird.

    My Beagle was old but, she used to have fun chasing the same Rabbit every evening in the yard. :supergrin:

    One evening that Rabbit came within 6' of the backdoor. So, I thought I would give the dog a chance, I quietly opened the door but, she didn't catch it. :supergrin:

    I had to have her put down a month ago, she had Liver Cancer. I think the Rabbit misses her too.:crying:

    Man that is funny.... Go on, send the pics !
    Buddy sounds like a interesting little package. Leaping fence's with a single bound and then doing the tightrope act on top, man, if you 'do' get over the noise issue, your right, you got yourself a world class squirrel dog ! ha.

    With the leaping abibility he's got, and the balance, and the hate (or love to chase), squirrels he has, what a little dynamo.


    Our lab "Buddy" Tries to get in the 'wal-mart pool' for the grandkids. Sounds like about the size of yours. Everyone screams and yells, and is scared he is #1 Going to make it in. or #2... punch a hole in it and screw it up !

    He is about 94 pounds, and 5 years old, and 'does love' water as you may suspect being a Lab. I have to buy him one of the small 15.00 plastic pools about a foot deep to hope it will satisfy him, or let him get in the truck and drive him down to the creek/lake, and have at it.. ha

    Man I am holding out hope for 'your Buddy,' that you can get him over his noise problem, and end up with a great little hunter there. Shoot, sounds like he could pretty much go up a tree trunk after those critters ! :supergrin:


    Hang in there with him man. You'll think of some way to get him out of his fear.... good luck. Look forward to hearing the Buddy saga.........


    Stay safe
