The Beagles love it here! Occasionally, a rather large western jack rabbit will slip through the fence and come into the back yard. Mitzi and Daisy will dash out into the yard only to be frustrated by a fast disappearing rabbit. I imagine it is the law of survival for the rabbit, since it must constantly be
on the look out for coyotes, bobcats, and in this case, howling Beagles. Our couch potato dogs for the most part are exercised on leashes back home on pavement or grass. Here, we must carry a pair of pliers in our pocket in order to remove rather large cactus stickers (similar to the one in the photo here) from their feet when they are taken on a trail walk.
