Unhappy My Beagle brought me an unwanted "present"

My beagle is a housedog. We have had her since she was 7 weeks old. She has never been trained to hunt. I took her for walk this morning and she yanked her way off the chain. My boys tried to chase her down but she went into a wooded area behind our subdivision. When she came out ten minutes later she very proudly presented me with a rabbit. I was mortified. Of course the bunny was dead. My Chloe girl was so excited wagging her tail and proud of herself. She could not understand why mommy was screaming. She has been looking at me all sad now ever since.

She is a dog. Her ancestors did it, it is still engrained in her. My one dog would bring me possums. yuck.

My border collie did that once. He actually killed the bunny by chasing it. I guess it got scared and had a heart attack or something. He brought it to me just like yours did. He never did it again, thank goodness! So hopefully yours is a one time "present" as well.

haha I still remember the day my poor Papillon (a 'mouser' by birthright) brought me a mouse.

Poor thing looked at me like "DON'T YOU LOVE IT???!?!!!"

I'm afraid I freaked out.

Why get all excited about something as silly as a fake celebrity? Or getting a tag?

She's a dog - that's what she does! She doesn't have to be trained to hunt, it's ingrained in her.

I have a Min Schnauzer, bred to hunt small rodents. She has killed more bunnies than I can count and has met me at the door many times with a limp one in her mouth. It's gross, and it makes me terribly sad, but it's just who she is. I don't scream at her - I just tell her to drop it before she comes inside and then I go dispose of it.

rofl...we have been considering a beagle as our next dog and heard about their urge to run after anything they smell...I had no idea they could actually do anything once they found it! I pictured them standing and waiting for their human to come get it On the bright side, the rabbits in your area should have no problem replacing the one your dog got.

Its times like these I'm glad I have a sheep herding dog. He has a crazy sense of boundaries and will herd us whenever the family is on a hike, but thats about it

Awwww... and Ick....

I don't have a dog but when my cat gave me a chipmonk, I didn't praise him, and hoped he wouldn't do it agin.. I also didn't yell at him, as a cat is a natural born hunter.. I felt so bad my Cat was all proud and I couldn't even share in his excitment..

I had no idea she would know what to do with it either. It was limp but there was no blood. I know I know TMI. But my guess is she shook it to death. Her sense of smell is incredible. She smells the coffee as soon as it starts every morning and nudges me that it is time to wake up.

Rabbits are very frail - just being caught and grabbed likely killed the little guy. Baby bunnies, esp, are very frail! I've tried to save a couple and it just doesn't work.

My German Shepherd once chased a rabbit and caught it. She didn't know what to do with it so the rabbit has lived in my house for over a year now. We love her so.

Someone had dumped this poor bunny in my back yard. Don't think I'm crazy - she was domesticated! She's 17 lbs.

If she had hurt this bunny, I would have been very upset. Yes, it's "nature," but that doesn't make me feel better about it.

Good for you for rescuing the giant bunny and giving her a home!

Two Proud Doggie Mommy Moments:

#1 - We always do a once over before we let Charley out the door. One Sunday morning, shortly after we adopted him, my husband missed the bunny in the dead center of the yard, and when Charley went out the door, Charley went STRAIGHT for it.

He grabbed it - he got it. My husband yelled 'CHARLEY! NO!! DROP IT!!!' By this time I was out the door too, and it was all in slow motion. The bunny flailing around in his mouth, my husband's "NooOOOooOOoooO!" like the movies. LOL! And Charley looked at us, Bunny in mouth, leaned his head down and.......


DROPPED IT!!!

The bunny took off, Charley began to go again - and again, we said NO! And then he stopped, gave us the evil eye, but let it go.

#2 - Wasnt as proud. Well sort of. Charley got himself a squirrel, and after my husband grabbed his collar, he let it go, but the squirrel was too riled up and was going after Charley once he let it go! Charley was getting attacked!!! My husband had to let Charley go, as to not be slaughtered by the crazy kung-foo squirrel.

Charley still has battle wounds from that dude.
