Hemi's mom says: I got Hemi when he was five weeks old. I immediately learned that he loved to chew on my socks! He has completely decimated the population of socks in this household. He loves his squeaky toys and will sit for half an hour doing nothing but making them squeak. He has a big fenced-in backyard to run around in, but he doesn't like to go out by himself. One of his favorite activities is chewing on my cat, Fluffy -- particularly her ears. He's big for a beagle -- he's over 15 inches tall and weighs almost forty pounds -- but he thinks he's still small enough to be a lap dog. We encourage that, because we love him so much!
