I am so glad I worked from home today and am not wearing my meticulously applied black liquid eyeliner, because it would be completely ruined and streaming halfway down my face after watching this video. The Beagle Freedom Project is dedicated to rescuing the adorable breed from a life spent in cages as test subjects for laboratory research. Beagles are the most popular breed for such experiments because of their sweet, docile nature, and are often bred and sold by commercial breeders to scientific research labs for such purposes. The Beagle Freedom Project rescues those sweet pups and finds them loving forever homes. In the video above, watch as nine recently rescued beagles are brought outside and experience the freedom to run and frolic for the very first time. I’m simultaneously shedding tears of sadness and joy. RUN, SWEET BEAGLE BABIES, RUNNNN!!!!!

Because if he’s secure enough in his sexuality to carry around a frou-frou little dog like that, that is a guy who’s a keeper. Never go out with a guy with a beagle. I know they’re cute, cute, cute, but they’re dumb, dumb, dumb, and they have no attention span, so you’re with the guy and he might not know what to do – the next night, you have to tell him all over again.”
Crap. My dog Lucca is a mutt, but we (Note: That is, myself and my boyfriend, who parents her with me — and yes I said parent. Deal with it.) are pretty sure she’s probably a mix of Italian Greyhound (known for loving the attention of people), Jack Russell (hyper, much?), and, gulp, Beagle. This begs the question: If a man owns a Beagle with a woman, does that mean they both suck in bed? Catherine and I discuss the issue, after the jump. Keep reading »
