New Puppy In The House!

Sunday, February 26, 2017

To be honest, Toby isn't that new haha, he's been with us since last December and these few months just flew by before I could update heh. He is the newest member of our family though! 

Do not be fooled by his handsome face, he's a little terror who drove the whole family crazy for awhile hahaha

After the first week, I seriously questioned whether I took on more commitment than I should. Toby was a handful and it was sooo frustrating trying to discipline him while he was chasing after a screaming Kayla or pouncing on an angry Tasha (our other dog!). His antics were so funny at the same time though? He knows we get especially riled up whenever he chews on our slippers, so he'd intentionally run pass us with a slipper in his mouth whenever he can so we'll chase after him LOL

Toby has a love-hate relationship with Kayla; everyday they will have some form of "quarrel" ~ and when Toby is finally off playing on his own Kayla will run after him calling "to-to to-to to-to" heh. They have so many similar traits it's actually very amusing to watch them together! 

Here's Kayla giving Toby a hug while Toby is very seriously "sitting" in hopes of getting a treat

Brought Toby out on a playdate with my friend's pups! He's on the chair because he pissed all the other female dogs off and nobody wants to be close to him LOLOL

At this point we are all happy to have this cheeky pup join our family, and personally I'm just glad the girls will get to experience what it's like to have a doggy bestfriend during their childhood!

Posted a bunch more photos and videos of Toby up on instagram (@tobyandkayla) ♥︎


  1. Welcome to a beagle’s world: These guys and gals are generally busy exploring their world (even if they just smelled it an hour ago). They’ll investigate anything and everything. They’ll bring you their “finds” with tail wagging and butt swinging. Hahaha...


  2. Wow do you have difficulties in training him? I heard that While adult beagles are easier to housetrain than beagle pups, they still can be slow to pick up the concept. Beagle pups are sometimes difficult to house train because of their single-mindedness and their extremely powerful noses. It is very difficult to remove the smell of urine from a carpet to the point where the beagle pup cannot smell it. The pup, if it smells urine, will continue to return to that spot.


  3. Hi, Beagles need much more exercise than most people give them, which is why you see so many fat Beagles with health problems. Though they're often kept in city apartments or condos, they should not be. Beagles require long frequent walks and a fenced yard where they can stretch their legs off-leash – FENCED because Beagles are explorers and chasers who will follow their nose wherever that fascinating sight or smell takes them, and since Beagles are endowed with selective deafness, they seldom come back when you call them.
    In addition, you can't leave them outside unmonitored, for Beagles are prone to wanderlust and can be adept climbers and diggers. Also, Beagles left outside become bored and then they bay and howl and dig holes.
    One more thing.....most Beagles are chowhounds, so keep your trash cans out of reach and never set your plate of food down where he can get to it.
    The Beagle's vast stubbornness and distractability call for consistent and persistent obedience training based on respect. Food rewards can be a great motivator for Beagles, but if you base all of your training on food, your Beagle will only obey when you have a cookie in your hand – obviously not a good situation.


    So happy that you have a beagle at home...have fun.
