There ain't nothing wrong with 11 beagles. Grandaddy used to have more dogs than you can shake a stick at and he would hunt with around a dozen everytime. It was great when were a kid, because it was like a zoo at his house. He had rabbit beagles, deer hounds, coon dogs, bird dogs, a german shephard, rabbits, quail, turkeys, cows and other animals that I'm sure I'm forgetting. The best was when he would train his beagle pups with one of his penned rabbits. Nothing beats a pack of puppies chasing a full grown rabbit around the yard. Those days were great. He is 84 now and had to get rid of all of dogs except a couple. Man do I ever miss those days. Oh yeah, we did kill a few cottontails every now and then.
