ARGH! No beagle sightings.
I found an ad in the newspaper for "Beagle Puppies" and realized that anyone selling beagle puppies may have more than one beagle at their home.
It was a hunting type dude, but unlike the ones I'd talked with before, this one was very discouraging and quite rude to me. He said "I seen your thing in the paper and I'm sorry for you, but your dog probably got eaten by a coyote or wolf by now".
Well, yes I realize that Barbie may have met with an untimely death, but all I wanted him to do was say "no, I don't have your dog, and I'll keep on the lookout for her". It's not like I'm stupid and think Barbie will come back to me in pristine condition... I'm aware of the facts of life. Maybe I'm expecting too much when I expect hunting type guys to be *nice* when I ask them for help.
On the other hand, maybe I've been spoiled by the other hunting contacts I've had. The other hunting type guys have been really nice to me with our previous contacts.
The search continues...
