I was talking with some friends this evening and they told me that they're really looking for a 13" male dark(er) tri-color beagle puppy. I ran them through a gauntlet of questions, just to make sure they weren't being sucked in by puppy love, but they passed. The biggest problem they have is where to actually get the puppy. They've checked around and Kansas itself seems to be a wee bit short of Beagle breeders that wouldnt' require them to drive half the state. They've looked on the Web and so have I, but we've both come up empty-handed. So, do any of you know of some good, reputable breeders that will ship a short distance to Eastern Kansas or some good breeders in Eastern Kansas/Western Missouri? I warned them about pet stores and classified puppies.
