Beagles is the joint effort of Betsy Manifold & Dennis Dollar.
We are located in Escondido, California, just north of San Diego along
the coast. Collectively, we have owned beagles for over 40 years.
In 1999, when Dennis suffered a shoulder injury which ended our weekend golfing
hobby, we went to our first dog show.
At our second dog show we saw a puppy named Just-Wright Southpaw ("Lefty")
and fell in love with his attitude and the way he moved around the ring.
Fortunately, we were in the right place at the right time (or should I say "Wright" place
and time), and Lefty became our first show beagle and an important new part of
More importantly, Lefty gave us an exciting introduction to dog shows, full of
thrilling wins and wonderful new friends. In 2001, Lefty achieved the position
of No. 1 Fifteen Inch Beagle!
In 2008, Jazz (BIS and BISS Ch. Jabrwoki's Le Jazz Hot), co-bred and co-owned
with our good friends Shawn and Bobbie Robblee, not only achieved No. 1 Thirteen
Inch Beagle two years running, but gave us our first Best in Shows and won Best
of Breed at the 2008 National Beagle Club Specialty Show in Estes Park, Colorado
under Judge Dr. Daniel Dowling.
In 2013 we are proud to present Gable -- BISS GCH Barrister's Manhattan Melodrama -- with Bruce and Tara Schultz on the lead. We will also be introducing two new puppies, Adele, Barrister's Fire In My Heart, and Tommy, Barrister's Crimson and Clover.
Our many new friends have each gladly shared their knowledge of Beagles with
us. One of them presented us with a plaque naming us "Barrister Beagles" and
we have been pleased to participate in this great sport under that name. We hope
you will enjoy these pages as we share our Beagle experiences with you.
