    This is ridiculous but true. This lady Beagle I have adopted gets fed twice a day. Dry kibbles served up in a blue bowl. AM feeding no problem.. She snarfs it right down.. Evening feeding? Well, about halfway through she backs up from the bowl and starts the Beagle bounce and howl,, it's comical, but she will not finish until we go outside and pour the food out of that bowl,, Today she ate it right off the deck. What is her Beagle problem? Anybody ever heard of this behavior? :confused:

    I have a beagle. Mine doesn't like getting wet. If it's raining, he tries to pee on the front steps. He jumps over puddles. He's quite prissy. :lol:

    Oh, and I have no suggestions. Sometimes mine will take a mouthful of food from his bowl, drop it on the floor and eat it in front of where I'm sitting and eat it. I guess he's flaunting his meal? Beagles are strange creatures. I would ignore her, if possible. :lol:

    I've never had a beagle. I've currently a neurotic Dachshund and have had equally neurotic, though different Cocker Spaniel and English Spaniel. Also a non-neurotic mutt spaniel. They would starve if wanted that kind of behavior on my part. ;)

    Maybe she's full after the first feeding...if you want to feed her twice a day, try cutting down on the portions...

    I think you might be right, cause when she starts that howl we come a running,, jeez the whole freaking neighborhood can hear her.

    Well get used to it. :lol:

    They tend to think their tuff at times. At least mine does. Nothing like a midget puffing himself up....'grrr, out of my way'. :lol:

    My first German Shepherd had a funny habit. She would take a mouthful of kibble, trot upstairs to our bed, drop it and then eat it a piece at a time....then go down for another mouthful.

    Go figure! :lol:

    Very weird. When you put the food outside does she finish all of it?

    I raised and bred beagles for 16 years. At one point in time I had 45 adult beagles. I've had quite a few litters of beagle pups and although I haven't seen it all, I've seen most of it at one time or another. I used to have this one beagle that when you fed him and gave him fresh water he would immediately poop in his water bowl! Out of all the beagles I've had over the years, he was the only one I ever seen do this. Beagles, like people, often do things that are hard to explain or simply don't have any rhyme or reason behind it.
