Beagle


Here is another favourite doggy character - Snoopy, Charlie Brown's dog - from the cartoon strip Peanuts, by Charles M Schultz.

Gromit of Wallace and Gromit is also a beagle. They are scent hounds predominantly and an ancient breed with many references in literature, art and even science. The ship on which Charles Darwin made the voyage which provided much of the inspiration for On the Origin of Species was named HMS Beagle after the breed.

Next week, back to the beginning of the alphabet I think and I've got my eye on Airedale Terriers. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for reading.
