Here’s a quiz: What dogs are active, independent, tenacious, and vocal? Another hint: They don’t always get the best grades in “plays well with others.” Terriers, of course! We all know this. Same as we know that setters and retrievers are energetic and friendly — and also maybe a little bit goofy and slow to mature.
But here’s one I bet you didn’t know. All beagles like to climb into open dishwashers and do a little pre-cleaning before you start the wash cycle!
Strange, but true. And I have the evidence to prove it. The screenshot to the right is of a beagle named Griffey. I came upon it in a tweet from a certain Jenny Wiley. (Stand up and take a bow, Jenny!) Don’t know if you can make it out, but she captioned the photo “my chronic unhelper #beagle.”
What blew my mind is that I have almost the exact same photo (left) of you-know-who, when he was just four months old! I swear we didn’t train Ricky to do the dishes for us. It’s just in his beagle genes. Yet another example of what great dogs beagles are!
